Terence Garvin was expected to be West Virginia's best defensive player in 2012.
He had a solid year, but didn't quite live up to expectations. He made a few too many bonehead penalties, but he was still solid for the Mountaineers.
Garvin finished with 77 tackles (No. 3 on the team), 11.5 tackles for a loss, a team-high six sacks, an interception, four pass breakups, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
After an up-and-down regular season, he finished his career with arguably the best game of his career in the Pinstripe Bowl. In fact, he was one of the few players on the team to have a great game at Yankee Stadium.
A versatile hybrid safety, he fit in well in the "STAR" linebacker role.
Shaq Petteway played well as a reserve last season and may end up taking that slot next season.
Will he (or someone else) be able to take the next step and make the kind of plays that Garvin did throughout his career?
