Over the last year, Garner has added 18 lbs. to his frame and even grown an inch too. He has quickly taken the crown from upperclassmen of the pass as the leading tackler at Norcross. Several G5 schools have offered during the middle of his junior year, so the interest is definitely beginning for Garner. He is a big hitter with excellent acceleration to the football. Garner closes very well, he is almost like a defensive back with how quick he gets to the football. Reads the play pretty well too, Garner has put together one of the better tackle seasons in Gwinnett County. Does a pretty good job of tackling low and takes good pursuit angles. His speed is a big difference maker and allows him to get the backfield so quickly. He doesn’t really ever have to get off blocks for that reason, he just runs around them. His first step is very impressive though, and Garner does a nice job of efficiently getting the ball carrier down but want to see him get a bit lower on his attempts and to drive his legs through the ball carrier.
