QB Jake Garcia decommits from USC, reopens recruitment

Former Narbonne and La Habra quarterback Jake Garcia has been fired from USC, he announced on Twitter on Thursday evening.

Garcia had been committed to the Trojans since fall 2019 and was the first QB to join the USC recruitment course in 2021. Bishop Alemany, quarterback Miller Moss committed to the USC in June.

“After many discussions with my family and careful consideration, I am in the process of releasing USC,” Garcia wrote. “This allows me to honestly evaluate my options as the early signature date is fast approaching. No love has been lost for the USC family. ”

Garcia played his junior year with Narbonne before moving to La Habra. But when the COVID-19 pandemic delayed high school football season in California until spring, Garcia chose to finish his career in Georgia and still enroll early in college. He first transferred to Valdosta High before being declared unfit and moved back to Grayson.

The 195-pound six-foot Garcia is a four-star prospectus according to 247Sports.com’s curated rankings.
