Garnett Has "Great Time" At Montlake

Saturday saw a host of some of the top local talent in the state on the sidelines to watch Washington's scrimmage. One of the players in the house was Puyallup's Josh Garnett, a bruising, physical offensive lineman who could go almost anywhere in the country. caught up with Garnett and got his thoughts on the scrimmage and what his day was like...

"Oh man, I had a great time, a great time," Garnett told Sunday afternoon. "It was a really intense practice and I just had a lot of fun watching the players and coaches work.

"I spent a lot of time talking with Scott Rose, who I work out with a lot, and Nathan Dean. I also talked to the quarterback (Derek Brown) from last year's class.

"I also went to both the offensive line meetings and the defensive line meetings and learned more about their offense and defense and what they try to do."

There has been some conjecture about where Garnett wants to play as well as where schools see him fitting once he gets to the next level.

"Washington and most schools want me on offense primarily," Garnett said. "I'd say I prefer offense to defense and that's where I think I will fit in best, but however I can help a team, and if the coaches think I'm a better fit on defense then I will play there, then that's where I will play."

Garnett said he plans to take a couple more unofficial visits over the next few months to schools who have offered and the programs he's most interested in, but said he's unsure at this point of which schools will get a visit or when they will happen.

"My dad and I have talked about going to USC's spring game next weekend," Garnett said. "I'm not sure if that's going to happen or not, but that's what we've talked about.

"Other than that, I really haven't thought too much about where I'd like to still visit.

"We'll talk about things and where we'd like to visit this summer and then it will be into my season and then I will take my official visits and then I will decide in January sometime."

Garnett said he's likely to take in at least one more Husky practice before they wrap things up later this month (April 30th) and that he continues to favor no schools over any others at this point.
