Former Texas A&M standout Myles Garrett reveals which Power 5 program was his 2nd choice
Myles Garrett in the Big Ten?
It could have been a possibility.
The Arlington, Tex. native decided to keep it in state, though, opting to attend Texas A&M. He left as one of its all-time great defensive players, finishing with 31.0 sacks and 47.0 tackles for a loss before being picked 1st overall by the Cleveland Browns in 2017. That success has translated to the NFL as he has become one of the league’s top defensive linemen.
But, as it turns out, Garrett was also considering going to Ohio State, potentially joining forces with some other big names from that time period.
“If I had gone to Ohio State, we would have had the best run of defensive ends of all time,” Garrett said on FOX Sports Ohio. “We would have had Joey (Bosa)… me, Nick (Bosa) and Chase Young. It’d have been an insane run.”
At the end of the day, Aggies fans are glad that Garrett decided to stay close to home instead of joining Urban Meyer in Columbus. And although Young and the Bosa brothers had decorated careers of their own, Garrett’s own production speaks for itself.
