4-Star QB Recruit’s Parents Legally Separated So He Could Play This Season
Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports
Four-star QB recruit in the 2021 class, Jake Garcia, is originally from California, where football isn't being played. So. he decided to move to Georgia to play. To make this happen his parents had to legally separate. Per ESPN.com’s Mark Schlabach...
quote:

For a transfer student to be immediately eligible under Georgia High School Association rules, he or she must make a “bona fide move,” in which the “student moved simultaneously with the entire parental unit or persons he/she resided with at the former school, and the student and parent(s) or persons residing with the student live in the service area of the new school.”

Moving to Georgia wasn’t a problem for Randy, who retired in 2012 after working for 32 years with the Los Angeles Police Department. Yvonne, who works as an administrative assistant, had to remain in California for her job. For Jake to be eligible for one season at Valdosta High, Randy and Yvonne legally separated to meet the Georgia residency rules. According to court records, Randy and Yvonne dissolved their marriage on Aug. 20. They plan to get back together once Jake’s season at Valdosta High ends.
Garcia, a 6-foot-2 quarterback committed to USC, will play for Rush Propst’s Valdosta High program in Valdosta, Ga. this season.

Kid's parents are dumb. He has a full ride to USC right now, why even play your senior season? He's better off focusing on getting stronger and faster than risking an ACL playing a meaningless year of football. Honestly something like this makes more sense for an average player who may never play again if they miss their senior season. Or a guy without offers that has a legitimate shot at picking up a few if he plays well.

I would feel allot different about this if they were playing football in CA. The kid wants to play football and found a program that fits his skill set.

‘Found a program that fits his skillset’ - wtf are you talking about? He’s a high school QB, and the majority of schools run a similar offense lol
