United Futbol Academy midfielder Jorge Garcia signs with Villanova men’s soccer

VILLANOVA, Pa. – Midfielder Jorge Garcia, a product of Lawrenceville, Ga., who played club soccer for United Futbol Academy, is the latest addition to Villanova Men’s Soccer’s 2020 roster.

“Jorge is a technical midfielder who sees the game well,” stated Villanova head coach Tom Carlin. “He has the ability to be a very good passer for us through the central midfield. His family and he embody the community spirit which student-athletes need to be successful at Villanova. We look forward to welcoming him to campus.”

Since joining United Futbol Academy in 2017, Garcia has seen extensive action for the club, appearing in 72 games as a starter in that stretch.

Garcia, who will enter Villanova as a freshman in the fall, becomes the eighth announced Villanova newcomer for 2020. He joins graduate transfers Evan Koenig and Sindri Bjornsson along with incoming freshmen Akinjide Awujo, Jack Bonas, Branden Johns, Owen Kulick and Luke Pompliano. Further additions to the fall roster are expected to be made in the coming days.
