Garland Sending Another Player to the Big 12?

A third Owl commits to a Big 12 school

A season after having a disappointing season by Garland Owl standards, the longtime dominant program out of the athlete-stockpiled suburb got back to its winning ways last season.

The Owls went 11-2, losing in the third round of the playoffs, and were two points shy of an undefeated regular season when they fell to crosstown rival Naaman Forest in the regular-season finale, 28-27.

With juniors making their oral commitments, it's starting to be clear why the Owls were back at top form last season, as head coach Jeff Jordan had his third player commit to a Big 12 school when lineman Jeremiah Edwards committed to Kansas. The first day a Class of 2010 recruit can actually sign a national letter of intent is Feb. 3, 2010.

Edwards plays on the offensive and defensive lines for the Owls, but is projected as a defensive tackle at the college level.

Edwards had a total of seven college offers from the following schools: Kansas, Texas Tech, SMU, UTEP, Tulsa, Arizona and Houston. He also had interest from Kansas State and Colorado.

Edwards joins a good talent base coming back for the Owls for the 2009 season, including WR/DB Adrian Phillips and linebacker Tevin Jackson, both of which have already committed to Texas.
