Castro Valley High football player Carlyle Garrick Jr. gave an oral commitment to Oregon this morning, he told Bay Area News Group-East Bay.
“I had two ACL surgeries (this year). They were always there … I just felt comfortable with them,” said Garrick about Oregon. Garrick, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound senior, has not played this season for the Trojans and said that he is out for the whole season.
Garrick was a first-team all-Hayward Area Athletic League selection as wide receiver last season and also played safety, but he said Oregon plans to use him at outside linebacker. Garrick said that he made his oral commitment to Oregon head coach Chip Kelly in person this morning on his official visit.
“When I was there, what I really liked was their academic center. That was really nice,” Garrick said. “The overall football facilities were great.”
