Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School offensive tackle Abraham Garcia is hitting the road this weekend.
"I am actually visiting Louisville this weekend," Garcia said. "That will be my first official visit."
The 6-foot-6, 331-pound offensive lineman has been in regular contact with Charlie Strong and his staff.

"I have been talking with them a lot," Garcia said. "They really like my game. They like how I play. They feel I could really make a big impact as a freshman if I went over there."
During his time at Louisville, Garcia hopes to learn more about the Cardinals as well as reacquaint himself with some South Florida prospects who are now playing their football there.
"I want to get to know the area," Garcia said. "I also want to spend some time with the team. I know some of the players over there like (quarterback) Teddy Bridgewater, (wide receiver) Eli Rogers, (defensive end) B.J. Dubose. So I will know a couple of people when I get there."
In addition to visiting Louisville, Garcia wants to check out two other schools.
"Hopefully I can visit Alabama soon and UCF," Garcia said.
That being said, a commitment following his weekend visit is unlikely.
"I will probably take more visits depending on how this goes," Garcia said. "It all comes down to how this weekend goes. I will come back and talk to (University) Coach (Roger) Harriott about where I am most comfortable at. We will make a decision from there."
At this stage of the process, the three-star edge blocker isn't ready to give one school the nod as his leader.
"I don't have a leader right now," Garcia said. "I am open to all schools."
