The Oregon Ducks went back to the future with their latest commit. They landed the type of player the Ducks have mad their living on when they were the Pac-10’s program with the most wins not too long ago.
The player the Ducks landed was three-star linebacker Kevin Garrett (5-11, 205, 4.6) from Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne.
Garrett was already sleeping when we called the Garrett household, but the committal was somewhat reluctantly confirmed.
“I would prefer that he tell you, but he did commit to Oregon,” Deborah Garrett, Kevin’s Mom said. “I felt comfortable with the coaches. They made us feel welcome.”
What about the distance from Deborah Garrett was asked?
“He will be fine.”
The Ducks get a player who makes plays and has a great nose for the ball. He is one of the reasons that Narbonne will play Lake Balboa (Calif.) Birmingham in the Los Angeles City semi-finals this week.
On the season Garrett has accumulated over 100 tackles, 30 tackles for loss, five sacks, four fumble recoveries (one that he returned 40 yards for a touchdown), and because of his bone jarring hits two forced fumbles.
The Ducks get a fine player and a great human being in Garrett.
Garrett chose Oregon over offers from Arizona, Washington State, Utah and San Jose State.
