OT Garrett signs with Oklahoma State

By Damon Sayles

Three-star junior college offensive tackle Brandon Garrett (Deer Park, Texas/Deer Park) said he let out a sigh of relief after signing his national letter of intent to Oklahoma State on Wednesday morning. For him, the anticipation is over.

Now, it’s time to go to work.

Garrett, a 6-foot-6, 285-pound offensive tackle, said he has been training and eating right in preparation for Oklahoma State in January. Garrett is one of 20 Cowboys commitments in the 2013 recruiting class, and he and fellow junior college athlete, four-star defensive end Sam Wren (Yuma, Ariz./Arizona Western College) will join the team next month. Wren is ranked No. 13 in the ESPN Junior College 100.

“It feels great,” Garrett said. “I’m excited to get started.”

Garrett was a Southwest Junior College Football Conference honorable mention selection this past season for Trinity Valley. He’s a tall lineman with long arms, and he’s expected to get even better under the direction of respected offensive line coach Joe Wickline.

“I was pretty relaxed [Tuesday],” Garrett said, “But when I signed, just a few minutes after, that’s when it felt kind of surreal.”
