Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin called sophomore DE Myles Garrett a blend of Adrian Peterson, Jean-Claude Van Damme and a cat.
Incredible. Let's break this down. Sumlin says Garrett has Peterson's explosion, Van Damme's flexibility and strength and a cat's body contortion. "We call him Batman," says Sumlin, "because his body looks like the costume." Garrett was one of the top SEC defenders last season in just his first year in college football. Expect the Texas A&M defense to take a step forward this season. Jul 28 - 9:40 AM

Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett "clearly has top-end talent, with explosive burst off the line that will make him one of the nation's best pass rushers," according to Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

"The Aggies had plenty of problems on defense last year, but Garrett's instant impact as a freshman saved them from even more frustrations," Brown wrote. "He boosted a lackluster pass rush in a hurry, debuting with an SEC freshman record 11 ½ sacks and 53 tackles. Eight of those sacks did come against Lamar, Rice and Louisiana-Monroe, so there's plenty of room to grow against stiffer SEC competition." Brown pegs Garrett as the No. 5 defensive end in the land. The 6-foot-5, 255-pounder earned consensus Freshman All-American honors last year.

Texas A&M defensive coordinator John Chavis has "simplified" the school's defensive scheme.

Senior defensive tackle Julien Obioha said it took him three weeks to learn the previous scheme and only three days to learn Chavis'. We are proponents of simplifying coaching on both sides of the ball at the college level, mastering and perfecting rather than over-complicating. Chavis was previously the defensive coordinator at Tennessee and Louisville.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett as his No.1 edge defenders to watch in College Football in 2015.

"Garrett might already be the best pure edge rusher in the country thanks to his upfield burst and destructive inside move. Garrett has cat-quick change of direction to keep him in more plays than the norm and he's surprisingly difficult to redirect once he starts to turn the corner in his pass rush," Zierlein wrote. The 6-foot-5, 247-pound Garrett posted 11.5 sacks, and was second among defensive linemen with 50 tackles in his freshman season. Garrett earned Consensus Freshman All-America, was a Freshman All-SEC selection, and brought home second-team All-SEC honors last season.

Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett will have to show that he can "hold his own better against the power-rushing SEC teams" that proved to be able to negate "his quickness with brute strength," according to NFL.com's Chase Goodbread.

"The next step in Garrett's game will be to hold his own better against the power-rushing SEC teams (read: Alabama, LSU, Arkansas) that negated his quickness with brute strength. If Chavis develops that part of his game, Garrett's immediate future is limitless," Goodbread wrote. The Texas A & M prospect broke Jadeveon Clowney's league record for sacks as a freshman with 11.5. The 6-foot-5, 247-pound Garrett showed a ton of explosiveness off the ball last season, and was even clocked at mid-4.4s in the 40 this offseason.

Texas A&M true freshman DE Myles Garrett is expected to play against LSU on Thanksgiving despite sitting out the game against Missouri with an unspecified injury.

Garrett is the school's bets defensive player in just his first season, breaking the SEC record in sacks for a freshman and producing plenty of disruption. He will face off against La'El Collins, one of the top tackle prospects in this class.

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."
