"Yes, I have committed to the University of Florida," Garcia said. "I'm a Florida Gator."
The 6-foot-4, 290-pound offensive lineman who is originally from Norcross, Ga., chose Florida over Georgia, Clemson, Ole Miss and Southern California.
Garcia, who started all 12 games as a sophomore, will have to sit out in 2012, but will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Ranked a three-star prospect out of high school, Garcia had scholarship offers from Florida State, Clemson and South Carolina.
