Commentary by: of Rivals100 Despite a "great" trip to Kansas State this weekend, lineman John Garrison says he commited to Nebraska when he got home. "I really liked Coach McBride and the way he relates to the players", Garrison said, "and I also like the way they play their defensive ends." Garrison has cancelled all remaining visits. He chose the Huskers over K-State, Missouri and Notre Dame.

"But it kind of made things worse. Both Missouri and Nebraska have plusses. Missouri's really changed its program, and I guess that I need some time to think about it." Kansas State, who was equal with Nebraska before the visit to Missouri two weeks ago, could make things even more difficult because he visits Manhattan this weekend. "I don't know what's going to happen," Garrison said.

John Garrison said. "I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. This next visit
to Nebraska will tell me a lot about how good the Missouri visit was."
Garrison has been leaning to Nebraska over K-State and Missouri all along,
but he said he is now not so sure. "I really don't know what to tell you,"
Garrison said. "I'm just going to have to visit Nebraska and K-State (Dec. 18)
and then see where I stand." Garrison did add an official visit to Notre Dame
for Jan. 15 but the Fighting Irish have not offered a scholarship.

"If I had to make my decision today, it would be either K-State or Nebraska,"
said Blue Springs, Mo., defensive lineman John Garrison. The 6-6,
250-pound defensive tackle was at the K-State-Nebraska game this
weekend, and even though the Wildcats won the game, Garrison said it
won't play much of a factor in my decision. "It didn't know who to cheer for
because both teams are so equal now," Garrison said. "It was kind of tough.
I found myself cheering for Kenny Cheatham when he made that
one-handed catch, and then I couldn't help it when Michael Bishop busted
loose on that long run." Garrison will start his official visits with Missouri on
Dec. 4, followed by Nebraska on Dec. 11. K-State will get a Dec. 18, and
Notre Dame and West Virginia might get visits. "The Notre Dame coach siad
they might pencil me in sometime in January," Garrison said. "But I know
that K-State and Nebraska are at the top without a doubt."
