In some pretty shocking news, Southern Pigskin is reporting that J.J. Green "will accept an offer to continue his collegiate eligibility at Georgia Tech."

Green, a former three-star back, would be able to enroll for the 2015, but would likely have to sit until the 2016 season, but that's alright since he still has a redshirt season available after being forced into action as a true freshman last season.

Green decided to transfer away from uga after getting moved over to the defensive side of the ball, after finishing last season as the dwags' second-leading rusher.

With five scholarship players leaving at the A-Back position, a potential transfer from Green would be indefinitely valuable for the Yellow Jackets.

It is also being reported that is not a done deal yet, so this article will be continuously updated as more news comes out.

Reactions? How would JJ Green look in Old Gold and White?

Update 12/8: 247 Sports is reporting that JJ Green to Tech is a done deal according to his high school coach, Jeff Herron. Rivals also put something up about it, but it's behind a pay wall, so if you're subscribed there, go check that out too.
