Anaheim (Calif.) Servite lineman Garett Pendergast became the 5th Friar player to make his college choice after committing recently to Boise State.
Pendergast, 6-4, 275 pounds played on both sides of the ball this past season and earned 1st team all-league honors on the offensive side of the ball. That's a big feat when you consider the Trinity league was hands down the toughest league in the entire state this year.
Ironically, it looks like Pendergast will be playing on the defensive side of the ball in college.
"He committed as a defensive lineman," Friar assistant head coach Frank Kalil said. "He's real good on both sides of the ball and they like him for defensive tackle. Before his visit to Boise, Garett really didn't know a lot about the school but he was really blown away on the trip and thrilled to be going there."
Pendergast echoed those statements.
"Boise State was nothing like I thought it was going to be," Pendergast said. "I thought it was going to be cold and wet and kind of a boring place and it was nothing like that. It actually has a big city feel to it but at the same time, it's a nice college town so you get the best of both worlds there. I liked San Diego State too, that was my other visit but Boise State is a big time program and I just felt most comfortable there."
