High school highlights:
How'd He Get to College Park?
Maryland is Garman's third school in four years. After redshirting his freshman year at Arizona, Garman transferred to Oklahoma State. He redshirted one season there before assuming the starting role early last year when starter J.W. Walsh got injured. Garman was replaced by true freshman Mason Rudolph before the end of the season.
Beating Texas Tech by throwing 370 passing yards and four touchdowns.
He wins the starting quarterback job in the preseason and is finally able to harness his arm strength into consistent success.
Garman looks entrenched for a battle with Caleb Rowe for the starting quarterback spot, but Rowe's experience with the program probably gives him a slight edge. Even if Garman does lose the battle, Rowe's injury history and inconsistent play means the transfer gunslinger will probably see some playing time this year at some point.
Our next player is a linebacker who hails from the same town as the most prestigious university in the country.
