Garrett Has Four Officials Planned

Arlington (TX) Martin defensive end Myles Garrett has four official visits planned.

In terms of recruiting and just overall great high school football, there wasn't a better place to be on Friday morning than Arlington Martin as the Warriors and Allen Eagles squared off in each team's first and only scrimmage.

Martin fell behind early in the game but prevailed late with a 24-17 victory as each team played their first, second and third team units.

While the "official" football season doesn't kickoff until Thursday, the scrimmage between Martin and Allen still gave recruiting analysts plenty to watch on the day. Although both teams boast some talented players, most eyes were on Martin four-star defensive end Myles Garrett.

Garrett, who holds offers from coast to coast, is one of the most talked about recruits in the nation as fans eagerly await his decision. He currently has four official visits scheduled.

"I want to go to Florida State, Alabama, Texas A&M and Ohio State," Garrett said. "I hope to take five but I don't know where the fifth one will be."

Garrett hopes to have a decision made during the season, noting it could happen at Martin's homecoming in October. As for favorites, Garrett says the schools he has official visits to are the one's standing out; but that could also change.

"Those four stick out but it can change anytime," Garrett said. "I'm trying to get my decision done early. I'm looking for someone that has a great defense, great defensive scheme, great coach that's not going to go anywhere and an environment I feel safe at and can grow in."

Another program Garrett considers among his favorites is TCU. Garrett visited TCU in July and will be in attendance when the Frogs take on LSU next Saturday at AT&T Stadium (formerly Cowboys Stadium).

Garrett said he continues to be recruited by his ex-teammate at Martin and Frogs All-American Devonte Fields. The good news for Frog fans – Garrett is still listening.

"He's telling me that we can make a great duo and we could do great things together," Garrett said of his conversations with Fields. "I still listen, he's my team and I've got to listen."
