NBA Profile: Angel Garcia

Angel Garcia likes four schools. However, he's not done visiting and isn't ready to show his cards.

Angel Garcia, a 6-foot-10 forward out of East Chicago (Ill.) Central, is looking at four schools: Memphis, Louisville, Indiana and Florida.

During the NBA Players Camp last week, Garcia told that he's been on each campus already except for Florida, the school he had hoped to visit this month if possible.

While playing almost exclusively on the perimeter during the camp, Garcia averaged 5.5 points. For many, it was one of the key opportunities to see him since the end of the high school season. Garcia has played on the AAU circuit, but he spent the bulk of the spring working in the classroom.

"I'm pulling up my grades and getting better on my grades so I can graduate next year," the native of Puerto Rico said. "I'm taking classes in the morning and at night too."

A European-style forward, Garcia considers himself a perimeter player and that's exactly how the programs recruiting him plan to use him in college.

"They want me to play more outside like a (small forward). That's what I like to do. My game is more outside. I'm big but I need to work on more of my inside game. I already know how to play outside."

Garcia would like to reach a college decision "when school starts. He wouldn't offer up a leader and played it close to the vest. "I like all of them. I have to think about them."
