Quarterback Colt Garrett has transferred from Texas Tech University to Angelo State, according to multiple reports.
Garrett (6-foot-1, 195 pounds) appeared in two games during his sophomore season with the Red Raiders in 2018. He threw only one pass, but it went for a 44-yard touchdown to Erik Ezukamna against Lamar.
He also played briefly against Kansas and was a member of the travel squad for every road game.
Garrett threw for 2,491 yards and 28 touchdowns for Lubbock Roosevelt High School during his senior year in 2015.
Garrett recently visited his former head coach at Roosevelt, John Contrucci, who is now the head coach at Junction.
Contrucci posted about the visit July 30.
Garrett didn’t receive a scholarship offer from Texas Tech, but he accepted a spot as a preferred walk-on.
Garrett arrives in San Angelo with two years of eligibility remaining. He’ll join a quarterback group that include seniors Charlier Rotherham and Payne Sullins (also a Tech transfer) and freshman Zach Bronkhorst.
ASU had a record of 6-6 last season and finished in fifth place in the Lone Star Conference.
Garrett’s transfer also opens up more room at Tech for San Angelo Central graduate Maverick McIvor, who is heading into his redshirt freshman season with the Red Raiders.
