Cyclones add DE Robert Garcia


Three-star defensive end Robert Garcia (Tampa, Fla./Jesuit) will sign with Iowa State Wednesday, according to Jesuit director of communications Pete Young. Garcia took an official visit to Ames, Iowa, for the weekend of Jan. 25.

The 6-foot-3, 260-pound senior originally committed to South Florida, but re-opened his recruitment following the Bulls' coaching change. Air Force, Florida Atlantic, Holy Cross, Lafayette, Lehigh, Ohio and Samford also offered.

ESPN states in its evaluation: "Garcia is not a flashy player, but looks to play hard. With continued physical development, he could grow into a solid and productive college D-lineman."
