I ran into Brad Garrett a minute ago and asked him a question I’ve been wondering for a while now: Are you coming back?
No, he said. The injury-plagued redshirt sophomore/junior said he plans to finish school and “Get on with my life.”
Garrett, a transfer from the College of Southern Idaho, injured his shoulder two Novembers ago when OSU was playing in the Maui Invitational. He had surgery and was out all of last season. This fall he was having problems with his leg — trainers thought it was a stress fracture for a while, and he was in and out of a protective walking boot. He participated in some practices early in the year, but hasn’t been suited up for a couple of months now.
OSU coaches said last week that his status was still rather uncertain, but Garrett seemed pretty sure this afternoon that he won’t be playing basketball again.
