Cole Garvin has been recognized by Scout as one of the top quarterbacks in Georgia since his eighth grade year. He is a winner, he is a pure passer, he is intelligent, and he now has a scholarship offer.

Cole Garvin has laid in bed many nights wondering when that first scholarship offer will come and he will not have to wonder that anymore.

"I will sleep better tonight," Garvin told Scout on Friday. "I have been waiting for this to happen and it finally did."

Garvin was offered by Marshall on Friday. He has not heard much from the Thundering Herd prior to today, but this offer left him grinning from ear to ear.

"Coach Walker (Sandy Creek Head Coach) called my dad this morning, then my dad told me to call Coach [Todd] Hartley from Marshall.

"I called him and he told me about the offer personally. He told me that he showed their quarterback coach (Bill Legg) my tape, that he liked me a lot, and that they want me really bad. They like how I throw, they do not care about my height (6-1), and that I have an offer."

The offer is not completely official until Legg coach sees Garvin throw live, but Coach Hartley told him not to worry about that.

That does not effect Garvin's feeling one bit.

"I could not stop smiling once I heard about the offer. It was a huge burden lifted off me. It made me feel great and I just smiled all day."

Garvin does not know a lot about the Herd, but he knows they like to throw the ball around and that is something that appeals to him.

He threw for 2,733 yards and 20 touchdowns while leading Sandy Creek to a state title in 2012.

Now that he has offer one in, he now wants more.

"I have a taste for it (the feeling when an offer comes) now and I want more . I will work even harder now and this has fueled my fire," said one of the top signal callers in the state of Georgia.

Garvin is visiting Auburn Saturday, then he plans to visit Duke and Memphis in March. He has already visited South Carolina this year.

Chad Simmons is currently a National Recruiting Analyst for FOX Sports/Scout. He started with Scout in 2003 and then moved on to another Recruiting Service from 2004-2008 before returning to Scout the first of 2009 to become South Recruiting Manager.
