Garcia, who visited Georgetown last month, could also visit U of L in the near future, according to sources familiar with his recruitment.

Garcia's coach, Brian Kent, says that Virginia Tech, Georgetown, Michigan State, and Florida State, along with Louisville are the major players involved in his standouts recruitment. The Spartans sent assistant Doug Wojcik to pay a visit for Garcia's game last Friday.

"He'd like to make a decision this spring so he can concentrate of improving during his senior season next year," Kent said. "He's still open."

Garcia is a high energy prospect, with great athleticism and the ability to knock down the outside jump shot. He's also a great kid, a four year college type, and he's cut from the same mold as current U of L sophomore standouts Taquan Dean and Francisco Garcia.

Garcia, who averaged 20 points and 12 rebounds as a junior and helped lead St. Anne's Belfield of Charlottesville, Virginia to its first district prep title this season, has tentative plans to visit Michigan State and Florida State this spring as well.
