The University of Arizona has gained three new recruits for its 2021 class in the past two days. One of them is Dekaney defensive end, Kevon Garcia.
Garcia is the third player from Texas to commit to Arizona’s 2021 class joining safety Dalton Johnson (Katy) and linebacker Jackson Bailey (Red Oak.)
Arizona has been focusing heavily on the defensive side of the football as five of their seven commits are on defense. Garcia talked about why he chose Arizona over Houston Baptist.
“I committed to Arizona because, I feel like I can grow on the field and off the field, also just the relationship I have with the coaches is great,” Garcia said.
Garcia is a 6’2 215-pound monster from Dekaney who in his junior season recorded four sacks, six tackles for a loss, and three fumble recoveries in nine games for the 6-5 Dekaney Wildcats.
“What motivates me to be successful is seeing my mother work the way she does just to get what we need and also losing family that expects this of me,” Garcia said.
Garcia will be lining up for a Dekaney squad with big expectations in 2020. They return not only him but district MVP and quarterback, Daelyn Williams. Their district in 2020 didn’t change hands with the realignment as all eight teams remain unchanged.
Garcia has one last accomplishment before he goes off to the desert.
“My goal is to be the best leader I can be and help win state.”
