Watch List LB Garrett considers new offer

By Jared Shanker

Earlier this weekend, Watch List linebacker Clifton Garrett (Plainfield, Ill./Plainfield South) said it was Ohio State and a couple of SEC schools toward the top of his list.

He has a new SEC school to consider.

Florida offered the 6-foot-2, 218-pound inside linebacker Tuesday.

"They have a good hard-hitting D and they know how to win," Garrett wrote in a text message.

LSU and Ole Miss are the two other SEC schools Garrett is high on. The Rebels have offered Garrett and are making him a priority. The Tigers and Rebels will have to contend with an SEC counterpart in Florida now, as Garrett said the Gators are in the hunt.

"I'll consider Florida a lot," Garrett wrote. "They have a lot to offer."
