PHOENIX -- One of the highest profile recruits to commit at the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl, Erie (Pa.) running back Greg Garmon wasted no time telling the assembled crowd at Bank One Ballpark and a national television audience on CBS Sports Network what school he was committing to Tuesday night.
"I will be attending the University of Iowa to play for Kirk Ferentz," Garmon said on the sidelines before the 4th quarter. "I was watching the NFL Draft and they said Iowa had a lot of NFL players."
The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Garmon was also considering Arkansas and Miami. He was ranked as the 26th best player overall in the class of 2012 and fifth-best tailback in the country.
"The complete back, he's been blessed with great size, speed, vision, balance, and hands, he's a three-ring circus who can run, catch, and block," said analyst Tom Lemming. "A do everything kind of back, he's a strong runner who keeps his pads low, fights for yards after contact and keeps his legs moving. He shows good patience and burst, and is one of the more competitive players in western PA."
