Sacramento City College DE Mark Garrick visited the Syracuse Orange last weekend as part of a big recruiting event. He liked what he say so much that he decided to take his talents across the country and play for the Orange next season.
Defensive end Mark Garrick, a 6-foot-4, 270-pounder out of Sacramento City College told Orange coaches today that he wants to play for SU.
Garrick, who is orginally from Gadsen, S.C., was among four junior college prospects who visited campus last weekend.
The East Coast was calling to Garrick, who told ESPN “I wanted to stay on the East Coast. I wanted to play ball and was given an opportunity to do that closer to home.”
Garrick garnered 54 tackles in 10 games for the Panthers last season and was named to the 2011 Mid-Empire All-Conference Team.
He doesn't seem to be ranked by either Scout or Rivals. However, according to Facebook, his job is "Defense" and his job description is "PUNISH anybody who's man enough 2 line up." Which is worth at least three stars in my book.
