Wykoff (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep wide receiver/athlete Michael Ray Garvin lit up the Army All-American Junior Combine in San Antonio a little over a month ago. Garvin, one of the top prospects in New Jersey, has received two scholarship offers. What schools is the talented junior hearing from?
"I am hearing the most from Iowa, Boston College, Rutgers, Maryland, Syracuse, Michigan, Florida, and Virginia. I have scholarship offers from Boston College and Rutgers," said the 5-foot-8, 175 pound burner who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds.
Garvin was selected the defensive MVP of the Army All-American Junior Combine in San Antonio. He posted the fastest 40-yard dash time at the combine.
"On my first attempt, I clocked a 4.27. The two people that were clocking it couldn't believe it so I had to run it again. My second attempt was 4.34 seconds. I had a great time in San Antonio. To be selected defensive MVP was quite an honor but the biggest thing for me was showing that I can go at it with the best in the country."
What is Garvin looking for in a school?
"Academics are important and so is location. I would like to play as a freshman and I want to go to a school with first class facilities."
Garvin did it all for Don Bosco Prep last season. He rushed 49 times for 600 yards and 10 touchdowns. Garvin also had 11 receptions for 100 yards and 6 touchdowns. On the defensive side of the ball, Garvin had 45 tackles and four interceptions. He returned two of those interceptions for touchdowns.
