Garrett has performed well on some big stages in the last year, helping Team USA win the gold medal at the 18U World Cup last fall and then throwing a four-hit shutout at USA Baseball's National High School Invitational in March. Garrett has the stuff to match his results. His curveball is his best pitch, earning easy plus grades for its tight spin and late 11-to-5 break. He is able to command his breaking ball, allowing him to throw it for strikes or make it a chase pitch to both righthanders and lefthanders. Garrett's fastball sits in the low 90s and his changeup shows excellent promise, giving him the potential for three above-average or better offerings. He has a balanced, easy delivery that he repeats extremely well, allowing him to fill the zone with quality strikes. Garrett is committed to Vanderbilt.
