Texas A&M true freshman edge rusher Myles Garrett broke the freshman SEC record for sacks in a season against ULL, notching his 11th.

Garrett broke the record when recording his 8.5 sack early in the contest. It was a 3.5 sack day for Garrett. Production is an iffy topic, especially for pass rushers, but Garrett is already extremely disruptive to go along with finishing plays in the backfield.

Texas A&M true freshman edge rusher Myles Garrett earned the top grade of +6.7 from PFF for Saturday's game against Arkansas.

Usually these grades are a mixture of pass rush, run defense, coverage and penalties, but Garrett posted his entire +6.7 grade in the pass rushing department. The Aggies defense was terrible last year, but they have allowed just 28 points to both SEC opponents this season. Garrett and Texas A&M face Miss State following an off week.

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett is 2.5 sacks away from tying Jadeveon Clowney's SEC freshman sack record of eight.

Sacks aren't everything, but Garrett already has 5.5 in the Aggies' revamped defense. "I didn't know he had this kind of pass rush ability in terms of his power, speed and these counter moves," said Texas A&M DC Mark Snyder. "It's pretty freakish... He can dip and rip, and bend the corner like I've never [seen]." Garrett was the defensive prize of A&M's 2014 class, and he is obviously already making his mark.

Texas A&M freshman edge rusher Myles Garrett has been "as advertised" during preseason practice, according to Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman and Stewart Mandel.

Garrett was the school's top defensive recruit and was ranked as a five-star prospect by a number of scouting services. Garrett "owed coaches early in camp when he got the best of All-American OT Cedric Ogbuehi on consecutive one-on-one reps using two different moves," according to the Fox Sports duo. A&M's offense will almost certainly be worse this season, but their defensive success can only go up.

High school DE Myles Garrett, the No. 7 ranked recruit on the ESPN 300, committed to Texas A&M on Friday.

"[The Aggies] are definitely going up [in the SEC]," Garrett said. "Right now, they are lacking some pass rush. That's all they really need to complete their team." The 6-foot-5, 247-pounder's sister, Brea Garrett, is on the Aggies' track and field team. Garrett chose TAMU over Alabama, Ohio State, TCU and Florida State, amongst others. The precocious prospect has already collected 15 sacks this season in high school. "Right now, he is unblockable," coach Bob Wager said. "We've had some great players here that have wrecked havoc and done some great things here, but Myles Garrett is so quick off the ball. He is so explosive, and he is elevating everyone's play around him."
