Riverdale, Ga., lineman commits to Troy (http://dothaneagletroy.blogspot.com/2011/08/riverdale-ga-lineman-commits-to-troy.html)

Troy has landed a commitment from Riverdale, Ga. (Charles Drew High School) offensive tackle Antonio Garcia, coach Jarrett Laws confirmed Tuesday night.

Garcia is 6-foot-7 and 253 pounds. He plays right tackle for his high school, which runs the same type of offense as Troy, because the quarterback is left-handed and Garcia can protect the blind side.

"He's a fabulous kid and our top offensive lineman," Laws said. "He's worked real hard. He's academically eligible and he's got a great attitude. I'm just real happy that Troy took a chance on him and that he'll get a chance to play at the next level. He's the total package."

This kid could be a great find.

With that height and our strength and conditioning program, he could be over 300# and be solid muscle. On top of that he seems to be very athletic. Check out the stats on this webpage...http://profiles.berecruited.com/athletes/athletics/1129475

According to them, he had 28 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, 2 interceptions (one for 64 yards), 6 blocked passes, 3 blocked punts, and 2 defensive touchdowns. Wow!

He could be another gem Troy found in Georgia that didn't garner much attention...Kyle Wilburn...and look at the player he has turned into, going into his third year as a starter and pre-season all-sbc. I like this, sounds like we are getting some good high school commits.
