Daingerfield Duo To Visit Over Summer

The Class 2A State Champion Daingerfield Tigers have two standout prospects that will be attending D1 schools in 2011. Both are A&M targets with one of them already holding a firm offer from the Aggies. Websider's Taylor Hamm has the latest on Shayvion Hatten and Keyarris Garrett.

The Class 2A State Champion Daingerfield Tigers have two standout prospects that will be attending D1 schools in 2011. Both are A&M targets with one of them already holding a firm offer from the Aggies. A&M's main Daingerfield target is a monster offensive lineman/defensive end that is currently committed to the TCU Horned Frogs. Shayvion Hatten is a 6-foot-5, 265-pound junior who shut down his recruitment back in March with offers from Texas A&M, Florida State, Houston, Missouri, Purdue, Texas Tech, and Tulsa. A&M offered Shayvion after he was committed to play for Gary Patterson in Fort Worth next season, but recently he's started to think a lot more about two Big 12 schools.

"A&M and Texas Tech are two schools I've been thinking about a lot lately. Both have great programs and their campuses are pretty good. They also get to play powerhouses like Texas every year."

"I like Texas Tech a lot because of their coaches. Their coaches remind me of our coaches at Daingerfield. It's far away from here but they have a great program and I'd even say Texas Tech has one of the best ones."

"I'll be down to College Station either this summer or before school ends," said Hatten

Hatten likes the proximity of the TCU campus but that doesn't mean he won't be exploring other opportunities.

"I could change my mind," said Hatten. "I'm always going to keep my options open."

Although Shayvion starts on both sides of the ball at Daingerfield, he just started playing in the Tiger's 3-3 stack defense last year.

"I just started playing defense last year and I really like it. One of the reasons why I'm looking at A&M is because of their 3-4 defense. That's what I'm used to running at my school. Coach Bowman said he is going to switch me out because I play all three positions on the D-line. I prefer playing defensive end."

"I talked to Coach Williams from Texas A&M about 3 weeks ago. I really like him."

Former Tulsa commit and teammate of Hatten is also garnering attention from the Aggies.

"Keyarris is looking at A&M, too," said Hatten.

Keyarris Garrett is a 6-foot-5, 187 pound versatile wide receiver with offers from Houston, New Mexico, Purdue, and Tulsa. According to Garrett, he jumped the gun with his initial commitment to the Golden Hurricanes.

"I de-committed from Tulsa because I wasn't ready. I wanted to see who else was going to offer," said Garrett.

Randy Jordan made an appearance at Daingerfield High School a couple of weeks ago and extended Garrett an invitation to A&M's junior camp next month.

"They [A&M] came to my school and he [Coach Jordan] said he liked me a lot. They want me to come to their camp in June to see how I do and then go from there. Coach Jordan was very impressed with my routes but he didn't have their receiving coach with him. He wants me to get to their camp so their receivers coach can work with me."

Hatten and Garrett are close friends and it would be an ideal situation for the both of them to play together in college.

"We always talk about playing together," said Garrett. "A&M, Texas Tech, and TCU are the schools we talk about a lot. I'd say A&M is sticking out most out of the three," said the former Tulsa commit.

Both Hatten and Garrett plan on making multiple trips to College Station this summer, and if the Ags extend an offer to Keyarris that could help their chances with landing Shayvion.
