Jesuit announced earlier today that two-way lineman Robby Garcia, originally a USF commitment when Skip Holtz was still Bulls coach, will sign Wednesday with Iowa State.

Garcia will be one of nine Tigers athletes, including eight football players, to sign at the school's early morning ceremony Wednesday. The entire list can be found below.

Garcia becomes the third Holtz commitment to move on since Willie Taggart's hiring as Bulls coach. Teammate Brad Smith, a defensive end, will sign with Lehigh; Robinson left tackle Connor Rafferty will sign with Samford.

A second-team pick on the Tampa Bay Times' 2012 All-Hillsborough County team, Garcia was a key cog on a Tigers offensive line that carved out lanes for a running game that averaged 184.3 yards. Defensively, he had 32 tackles and two sacks.
