Pleasant Grove's Bruce Garrett will enjoy living in beautiful Provo, Utah while playing for BYU in Fall 2020


Rising senior and Pleasant Grove High School running back Bruce Garrett will be headed to beautiful Provo, Utah beginning in Fall, 2020.

SMU, Arkansas and others were reportedly interested in the all-state running back, but a trip to Provo seemed to seal the deal after Garrett secured an offer from Brigham Young University in late May.

The university's pristine campus must have impressed the Texarkana, Texas football player because he decided to commit to BYU Cougar after his visit.

"Garrett isn't going to be the biggest player in the locker room, but his 5'11" frame is built like a truck and he is certainly big enough to play the running back position," said  Jeff Hansen of Cougar Sports Insider. "He is a legitimate 4.52-runner who also will be a threat in the receiving game out of the backfield."

Bruce Garrett boasts a PG school record for running 2,004 yards last year and weighs 189 pounds.

Provo is the third largest city in Utah and was named by Forbes as one of the best small and medium sized cities for jobs. It is also an absolutely beautiful place to live with many options for outdoor activities besides football.

No doubt PG and #HawkNation will continue to be a great training ground for the talented player in the 2019-2020 season as he prepares to become a Cougar 13 months from now.

For now, the PG Hawks are eyeing a return visit to the state championship game. That would cap off a great high school career for Bruce Garrett as he prepares for the big move to Provo.
