**Top Six Schools Identified by 4-Star Recruit Marcus Garcia**

Denton, Texas, Ryan’s four-star interior offensive lineman has amassed 30 offers thus far. As April begins, the 6-foot-5, 270-pound prospect is gearing up to narrow down his focus to six programs.

Garcia has now condensed his list to six schools, as he revealed to On3. While many institutions have shown keen interest in Garcia, his top six choices have distinguished themselves by fostering strong relationships and demonstrating a genuine commitment to his development.

“When considering my options, my family and I prioritize the relationships with the coaches and identifying the best fit for my growth,” Garcia shared with On3. “We look at which school can nurture my skills, has a track record of developing offensive linemen, and genuinely believes in my potential as a player and individual.”

“The amount of support and care they show is crucial to me.”

These connections will play a pivotal role in Garcia’s decision-making process, emphasizing the significance of personal bonds in his selection criteria. Scheduled next are a series of official visits this summer, commencing with a visit to Nebraska on April 26.

Following the Nebraska visit, Garcia plans to tour Arkansas on May 31, A&M on June 6, Michigan on June 14, and Penn State on June 19.

Garcia’s imminent decision

The time has come for Garcia to unveil his top choices, with a commitment possibly not far behind. By the time he embarks on his official visits, Garcia may have already made his decision.

“I aim to make a choice promptly. Late April or early May seems likely,” Garcia stated. “I sense the momentum building, and I know many recruits will be committing between April and July. I want to secure my decision during that window.”

Among his finalists, A&M stands out, having hosted Garcia on three occasions, including a recent visit to College Station. His visit to Michigan last month marked his first trip to Ann Arbor.

Ranked as the No. 171 overall recruit and No. 10 interior offensive lineman in the class, Garcia remains uncertain about the exact timing of his commitment. However, he is resolute that once he feels a strong connection with a school, he won’t hesitate to make his decision.

“If I sense that strong connection, that gut feeling, I might commit on the spot. When the time feels right, I’ll trust my instincts and make the call.”
