Garrett says 'Tulsa Back in the Mix'

After decommitting from Tulsa and scheduling a visit to Pitt to see former Tulsa Head Coach Todd Graham, WR Keyarris Garrett was leaning heavily toward the Panthers...

After receiving a visit at school today from Tulsa's new offensive coordinator Greg Peterson, Garrett says he is reconsidering the Hurricanes.

Following Peterson's visit to Daingerfield High, Keyarris Garrett sent me a text, reading, "Tulsa back in the mix!"

Garrett later called.

"Tulsa's offensive coordinator came to my school today to see me," he said.

Garrett said the two had a good talk.

After Todd Graham left Tulsa to take the head coaching position at Pittsburgh, Garrett was worried things would drastically change at Tulsa or- worse- the Hurricanes and its new head coach would drop him.

"That's why I held back on them," said Garrett. "I thought it'd be different."

"(Coach Peterson) told me it was going to be the same for me at Tulsa as it would be if Coach Graham was there," he continued. "I'll still come in and compete for a starting spot as a true freshman."

Garrett said he talked to Tulsa's new head coach Bill Blankenship earlier this week. According to Garrett, Blankenship will be making a trip to Daingerfield, TX next Wednesday for an in-home visit.

Garrett will then make an official visit to Tulsa the following weekend.

The receiver confirms he is still visiting Pitt this weekend. He said the one thing that could hold him back on the Panthers are the miles from home.

"Distance is a factor," said Garrett. "I really don't want to go far from home."

He said, however, if the opportunity at Pitt is hard to pass up, he could let the distance factor slide.
