Owls Early Class Adds Garcia

Dec. 21, 2017

By Chuck Pool (cpool@rice.edu) -

Mike Bloomgren has added a sixth recruit to his initial recruiting class with the addition of offensive lineman Cole Garcia of Dallas Bishop Lynch, who signed his National Letter of Intent on Thursday.

"Cole is a physical player who dominates and finishes his man to the echo of the whistle," Bloomgren said. "He is a poster child for the quote "drive his man from point A to point B against his will. He has the size to compete for playing time the moment he walks on campus."

Garcia was a two-time, TAPPS D1 All-State selection for the Friars under coach Chuck Faucette. Bishop Lynch won the 2016 D1 title and advanced to the semifinals in 2017 before falling to Houston's St. Pius X. He also earned Academic All-State honors as well.
