University of Miami quarterback Jake Garcia intends to enter the NCAA transfer portal, sources told ESPN on Tuesday. He’s informed the Miami coaches of his intentions, and his decision comes one day before the deadline to enter the portal.
Garcia is a former Top 25 recruit in the Class of 2021, per the ESPN 300. He’d originally committed to USC before flipping to Miami in December 2020. He redshirted his freshman year, which means he’ll have three seasons of eligibility at his next school and be immediately eligible.
According to a source, Garcia is looking to enroll somewhere immediately and play spring ball to learn a system and compete for the starting job.
