One of the Southeast's top linebacker prospects, Tucker (Ga.) outside backer Justin Garrett, will represent the East in the 2011 Offense-Defense All-American Bowl.
"One word describes Justin: Hitter," said O-D's Artie Gigantino. "He is clearly one of the best linebacker prospects in the nation. Auburn is getting a high-motored player than can play numerous defensive positions. We are very happy Justin will be on our East squad in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl."
Garrett selected Auburn in July over offers from Alabama, Florida State and Georgia among others.
He is ranked 13th nationally by Scout.com among outside linebackers.
The O-D Bowl will take place on Friday December 31 at 4:00 pm EST, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and will be nationally televised on VERSUS.
