Corian Garrison , the 6-4 295 pound defensive tackle from Bradford HS has been on the Bulls radar for some time now. After he was named first team All-State and recently played in the North Florida Shrine Bowl, there little to wonder why.

several scouts think he could play on the O-line at the college level as well.
As to grades Garrison says that he has already taken the
ACT and got a qualifying score, but will take it again in February to make sure
he gets eligible.
