The 6’5, 182-pounder committed to the Tigers back in early November, only a few days before he picked up his offer from the Cougars.
A product of Kemp, Gardiner is a consensus low three-star prospect who is ranked as the No. 1,196 player nationally, the No. 169 wide receiver, and the No. 166 player in Texas, according to the 247Sport Composite rankings.
For his high school, Gardiner competes in the 200 meters, long jump, and triple jump.
