Darryl Garrett - 2006

JUCO player at Schoolcraft (Marcus Bennett and current potential target James Davis)
6’4" 185 lb shoot guard.

Originally committed to Xavier, but played his freshman year at Eastern Michigan to stay closer to home. He was a frequent starter who managed “11.9 points a game along with 3.3 rebounds. From the field, Darryl made 41 percent of his shot attempts, 34 percent of his three-point attempts and 74 percent of his free throws.” A coaching change following the season prompted him to transfer to Schoolcraft to play his sophomore season.

Charlotte, USC, Nebraska, SDSU, and Tennessee are showing the most interest, with Minnesota, UNLV, and Wyoming also showing interest.

Garrett’s transfer to Schoolcraft Community College was somewhat of a surprise, but he might have had difficulty retaining his academic eligibility had he stayed with the Eagles. Garrett encountered difficulty last season in meshing into the structured playing style of former coach Jim Boone.[/b]
