Technical Tidbits 4/22

One football transfer down, but could the basketball team expect a boost as well?

Georgia Tech legend Bobby Cremins, who led the Jackets to three ACC Championships over 19 seasons as the head basketball coach on the Flats, is set to be inducted into the Coaches vs. Cancer's Circle of Honor. Cremins, in addition to being a once-in-a-lifetime coach, is an even rarer type of person, one whose contributions to society through community service will be remembered for many years to come. He is truly a class act in every sense of the phrase and is more than deserving of this great honor.

The big news from yesterday was that Stanford's Patrick Skov will be transferring to Georgia Tech to play his final season of college play in the ACC. This is a huge break for Tech, which was hurting for B-Back depth following injuries to C.J. Leggett and Quaide Weimerskirch. Skov should provide some great depth at the position, hopefully even providing supposed starter Marcus Allen with some competition throughout the season. He certainly seems to have the exact type of attitude that we love seeing from our players and is a welcome addition to the team. Check out FTRS' breakdown here.

In fact, Skov's transfer is so significant for the program that it is even drawing attention from ESPN. They make a good point is saying that despite Justin Thomas returning for another season, guys around him will need to step up for the offense to remain as good as it was last season. That very well could start with Skov, who carried the ball sparingly during his time at Stanford, making an impact as a rusher.

After yesterday's announcement that Stanford FB Patrick Skov would transfer to Georgia Tech, we can now turn our attention to some potential basketball transfers who may look to enroll on the Flats. The folks over at Yellow Jacked Up did a nice job of breaking down a few of these guys who I could definitely see finishing up their careers playing for Tech next season, most of whom come from mid-major conferences. By far the most interesting is Tyler Harris from Providence. He could be an offensive anchor for Tech's struggling team if he does decide to transfer here.

What does Patrick Skov's transfer mean for Georgia Tech?

Have a great Wednesday!
