"Coach (Jonathan) Smith was down here today and we had a good meeting and then about 20 minutes ago, coach (Chris) Petersen called me and said he wanted to offer me," Garbers told Dawgman.com. "He said he really liked the way I threw the ball and that I was a great fit for their offense because we run a lot of the same things here.
"He also said he loved my toughness. They watched every game I played in last year and the one they saw a lot of that with was our game against Buena Park which has a lot of big-time guys there. They beat me up pretty good. I think I got hit like 60 times in that game and coach Petersen said he loved it that I never quit and just kept coming at them."
The offer from the Huskies is the 14th for Garbers, but he said this one is pretty special.
"It's definitely a big offer for me," Garbers said. "My dad's whole side of the family, except for one person, they all went to U-Dub and I have family all over the area up there.
"The program is also great and I love the coaches and what they are building up there.
"I don't really have a favorite right now, I'm taking things pretty slow right now, but this one is a big one and they have moved right up to the top of my list with a few other schools."
This weekend, Garbers will fly out to Massachusetts to visit Boston College and then he'll focus on his team and spring football.
"I am not in a hurry to make a decision, but I'm not going to wait too long," Garbers noted. "I have kinda said late June or early July is probably when I will be ready, but no later than the end of July. That's when I will for sure have my decision done."
As a junior last year, Garbers led his team to a 9-3 record while completing nearly 69% of his passes for 2,715 yards, 33 touchdowns and three interceptions and rushing for 457 yards and seven scores.
