Myles Garrett confirmed that he remains committed to Texas A&M for the Aggies’ upcoming matchup against Kansas State in the Texas Bowl.
As relayed by ESPN’s Sam Khan Jr. on Monday, the star Texas A&M defensive end voiced his intention to practice with his team and play in the bowl game on Dec. 28 at NRG Stadium.

Garrett’s words should reassure Aggies fans. Earlier Monday, Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey announced that he would not play in the Cardinal’s matchup against North Carolina in the Sun Bowl on Dec. 30 to prepare for the 2017 NFL Draft.
Last week, LSU running back Leonard Fournette announced that he would sit out the Tigers’ game against Louisville in the Citrus Bowl on Dec. 31 to begin his preparations for the draft.
The Cleveland Browns reportedly have an “astronomical grade” for Garrett, as reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. As of now, the Browns (0-14) are in line for the No. 1 overall pick.
Garrett, a junior, has asserted himself as one of the SEC’s most destructive defensive forces this season. He has 32 tackles, 15 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks this year.
