Texas hosted numerous high school football players from the class of 2016 this past weekend. One of which was defensive tackle prospect Elijah Garcia. Garcia will be a name all recruiting fans will know over the next two year's.
"It was a great experience," Elijah Garcia said. "I got to see how fast the game is at the next level first hand; the best part of the trip was seeing all the awards and accolades that Texas has."
Garcia is very quick off the ball and plays with great pad leverage. I love the way he uses his hands and has tremendous pursuit down the line of scrimmage for a defensive tackle. He is very athletic and has a great frame that could easily hold another 20-25 pounds over the next three years. A very nice looking prospect at this stage of the game with plenty of upside.
"We play Clemens High School next," Garcia said. "We play at Gustafson stadium, and right now I am not sure about my next visit but I hope it is real soon."
