Perhaps inspired or influenced by the recent news coming out of Stanford, Texas A&M’s Myles Garrett has announced through a brief statement he will indeed be planning to play in Texas A&M’s bowl game this bowl season.
“I plan to practice today and prepare to play in the bowl game with my teammates,” Garrett said in his brief statement released by Texas A&M on Monday.
Garrett is expected my many to be one of the top draft picks in the NFL Draft in the spring. The conversation about potential top or high draft picks sitting out of the bowl season ignited on Monday with news that Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey had decided to not play in the Sun Bowl for the Cardinal so he could focus on preparing for the rigors of the NFL Draft process. LSU running back Leonard Fournette had previously decided to sit out of the bowl season (LSU faces Louisville in the Citrus Bowl) and prepare for the NFL as well.
Unless Garrett has a change of heart in the next week and a half, he and the Aggies will face Kansas State of the Big 12 on Dec. 28 in the Texas Bowl in Houston.
