Its official, the Bulls just received a Letter of Intent from All-State Defensive tackle Corian Garrison from Bradford HS in Starke, Fl.
There were many schools perusing Garrison this season, but at the end it came down to a BIG EAST battle between South Florida and conference rival West Virginia. However, this battle for the 6-4 295 pound defensive tackle goes to the Bulls.
"I really like South Florida, their close to home and I like the program they have."
Garrison also said that he prefers the 4-3 alignment that the Bulls run over the 3-3-5 Stack that WV uses, but can play in either scheme.
This season Garrison recorded 45 tackles, 4 sacks, seven tackles for loss, with one forced fumble, and a fumble recovery on the season. He was then named first team All-State and recently played in the North Florida Shrine Bowl.
"Playing time is important, but academics are important to me too. They say I'll probably have to red shirt, but if I do, then that's ok."
Garrison is big and versatile and has also played fullback and tight end, and several scouts think he could play on the O-line at the college level as well.
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.
"I'm just concentrating on school now and staying in shape"
