Miami football recruit Jake Garcia who is currently committed to USC but speculated to possibly flip to the Hurricanes will have his first game for Grayson High School in suburban Atlanta televised by ESPN Friday night.
Jake Garcia is the most sought after recruit remaining for the Miami football program who has not already pledged to the Hurricanes. Garcia is currently committed to USC but the Miami staff remains in contact with Garcia with the hope he will eventually flip his commitment. Garcia is currently in high school in Georgia.
The California native and son of former Nebraska quarterback Randy Garcia originally transferred from his home state to Valdosta High School in Southern Georgia when California delayed their high school football season from fall to spring. Garcia played one game with Valdosta before being injured and then declared ineligible.
Garcia transferred to Grayson High School in suburban Atlanta and gained immediate eligibility this week. Grayson will play Parkview High School which is in Lilburn, Georgia on ESPN beginning at 8:00 PM Friday night. Grayson has as many as five other Division I commits on their roster.
Garcia is the 39th ranked player according to the 247 Sports Composite rankings and the fourth-ranked Pro-Style QB. Mos of the Grayson Division I prospects are committed to ACC schools. That includes a pair to Georgia Tech.

With the ACC expected to reinstate divisions in 2021, athlete Jamal Hayes and linebacker Sebastian Sagar will play against the Miami football team as division rivals in their collegiate career. Sagar was at one time considering Miami. Parkview is loaded with multiple Division I prospects.
Garcia has been firm on his commitment to USC. The speculation about how firm that commitment began when the Trojans received a commitment from four-star QB Miller Moss. USC also recently offered rising four-star QB Jaxson Dart a scholarship. Garcia has mentioned he was aware USC wanted two QBs for 2021.
