"I definitely wanted to go to a good football program, but also a place with great academics - their academics are insane," said Garcia, who plans to major in business. "When I went up there they were already at the top of my list, but just going around the campus, seeing where I would be staying and what I would do on a daily basis, helped me make the decision."

HSH: We respect that. What about Wake Forest, obviously Jeff went there and thrived. Is there any pressure to follow his path or would you rather make you own? MT: No pressure. It’s a good thing because he can tell me everything that goes on there. It doesn’t bother me that he was such a great player there. If that was the school that I wanted to go to, I would go there.
