Josh recently decided to leave USF and play in Atlanta.

Josh entered USF this past Fall to play for someone he knew very well, his father. Three weeks after Coach Stan Heath was dismissed from the Bull's team on March 14th, Josh has decided to transfer from USF.

Josh played little during his out of conference schedule, however saw 17 games against his American Athletic Conference opponents. He averaged 2.6 ppg, 3.6 assists per game in his average 20 minutes per game.

The 6'2" freshman guard will technically have to sit out a year, however precedents would make you assume that Georgia Tech will apply for a waiver to get Heath on the court as soon as possible. In recent years, Billy Baron and Trey Zeigler was given immediate eligibility from the NCAA when their fathers were fired from Rhode Island and Central Michigan, respectively.

As far as the depth chart goes, Josh will compete for a guard position against Corey Heyward, Travis Jorgenson, and Chris Bolden.

What do you guys think about this? What sort of things are concerning about next year's team?
