Justin Garrett shut himself inside the film room while he tried to learn a new position this offseason, but it wasn’t Auburn’s defense on the screen.
Over glassy-eyed hours, Garrett jotted notes on South Carolina’s 4-2-5 defense. Before he could become Auburn’s breakout defensive player this spring, he had to know more about the defense it would run under new coordinator Ellis Johnson. At his last SEC stop, Johnson installed the Gamecocks’ base defense.
