"The Colorado State offer I got around last week," he said. "A couple of weeks ago I got Minnesota."
Contrary to some reports elsewhere, Gardener told DeaconSports that Wake Forest has not offered him a scholarship.
"I've spoken to them though," he said of Wake. "That was maybe two and a half weeks ago. They came to our practice and we talked over the phone too. They said they'll be back down to watch me practice and that they liked me. That's mostly it for now."
Gardener said Wake Forest is a school he would be interested in if they decide to offer him a scholarship. That said, two other schools that have not offered are his favorites for now -- Oklahoma State and Texas A&M.
Plenty can change between now and decision time, however, as Gardener plans on waiting to make his decision until after he takes some official visits. He does not have any summer plans at this point.
Denton (TX) Guyer has made great strides recently as a high school football program and that's one of the reasons coaches found out about Gardener early.
"I think we sent my film out to a couple of schools and a couple came out to practice, but a lot of schools just wanted to see what kind of talent we had. I'm pretty sure they heard about some of our players, since we have a lot of Division I guys."
