Josuha Garnett: Will Decide Between Michigan And Stanford On Thursday

Joshua Garnett, the No. 1 football recruit from the state of Washington in the class of 2012, will announce his commitment this Thursday afternoon.

The highly-touted offensive lineman will be deciding between the Michigan Wolverines and the Stanford Cardinal after eliminating Notre Dame this past weekend.

Garnett recently hosted Michigan Head Coach Brady Hoke for an in-home visit this past weekend:

The visit with Michigan potentially helped its chances because it gave Garnett's family the opportunity to meet with Hoke face to face.

"Coach Hoke talked to my mom a lot, and she hadn't met him before," he said. "He talked a lot about what it meant to be a Michigan man and how you represent your family." (Via: ESPN)

Garnett also hosted Stanford and head coach David Shaw in an in-home vist last week as well.

A recent article by Gerry Valerio from MaxPreps.com thinks Stanford is the front-runner to sign Garnett:

Stanford (bank on it): Garnett gushed about his visit on Jan. 13 and the camaraderie he had with his fellow recruits. The Cardinal also had the opportunity to make the last, best impression. (Via: MaxPreps)

Valerio also mentions Garnett's 3.8 GPA and aspirations to study medicine and become an orthopedic surgeon. Stanford, widely considered one of the top academic institutions in the country seems like a good fit for Garnett.
