La Marque, Texas offensive tackle Brandon Garrett is still waiting to find out if he'll be able to finish out his high school football career with one more season.
Garrett, the 6-foot-7, 290-pounder, was a part of the state championship team last year and is hoping to help his team get back there again in 2007. Because of age-related eligibility issues, Garrett says he's awaiting word from the UIL to see if he'll get that chance.
"I decided to see if I could still do it this year," Garrett said. "If it doesn't go through, I'll miss my last year playing for La Marque. The upside of it is that every school that has offered said they're going to take me regardless of what happens. I'm supposed to find out in June."

Scholarship offers haven't been slow for Garrett. So far, Garrett says he's received written offers from Baylor, Colorado, Kansas State, Nebraska, and Houston. Schools such as Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and USC continue to show interest.
Early on, Garrett says that four schools stand out.
"I'd have to say it's a top four, would be K-State, LSU, USC, and U of H," Garrett said. "They have a good academic programs and good football teams."
Visits are the next order of business for Garrett. The Lone Star lineman stays that he's planning to get out to Kansas State, LSU, Michigan, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech either this summer or going into the fall.
"I don't have any official dates set, I just know that I'm taking all of them," he said. "I'll probably make my decision once I'm through with all of those visits."
