Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett is projected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft. And apparently one of LSU's tight ends will be able to claim he was "choked out" by the top pick during the rivals' 2016 game -- twice.
According to a Q&A with ESPN, Garrett -- who's generally regarded in the public eye as a reserved person -- was asked to name "the meanest thing" he's ever done.
Garrett's response: "Against LSU my last year, I choked out their tight end two times in a row ... He had it coming. He just kept holding me, so I picked him up, put him on his back and then I grabbed his face mask and kept jamming his helmet into the ground. I said, 'I'm setting you straight right now. Don't do illegal holds.'"
As to which tight end Garrett is referring to, that's a bit of a mystery. Colin Jeter, DeSean Smith and Foster Moreau all saw playing time in LSU's 54-39 romp of the Aggies.
Though he didn't mention it in the interview, perhaps frustration kicked in for Garrett, who finished the game with just two tackles.
Overall, it was a night the Aggies would like to forget. Running back Derrius Guice ran for a school-record 285 yards. Teammate Leonard Fournette, just 33 days earlier, had just set the school rushing record with 284 yards vs. Ole Miss.
Guice's total was also the most yards a running back has ever compiled vs. A&M. The previous high was 283 yards by Texas’ Cedric Benson back in 2003.
