Freshman Kendall Young announced his departure from Georgia Tech after a tumultuous year, he was a late signee and had some legal trouble his senior year of high school. Young was arrested for breaking & entering last December, but was put into a diversion program where he will not be charged for any crimes if he is on good behavior for the rest of the year. Young also had some academic troubles, and was even taken off the roster in October so he could focus on academics. Young is the second transfer from the Georgia Tech program this season, with the first being freshman WR Nazir Burnett. You never want to see anything like this, and I wish all the best for Kendall going forward.
This article takes a good look at some of the current Gwinnett County natives on Georgia Tech’s roster. If Geoff Collins wants to have any success at Tech, he will have to continue recruiting Gwinnett and the rest of the Atlanta area at a high level.
Although the Georgia Tech Men’s Basketball season has not gone as well as everyone would like, Michael Devoe has been playing at an elite level. The sophomore guard has been averaging 21.4 points a game while shooting 51% from the field and 52.9% from 3-point range. This has been a big help to the Jackets, especially with point guard Jose Alvarado having been out with an injury recently. If Devoe is able to keep this level of play up, it won’t be a surprise if the NBA begins to call.
Last week, former Tech commit Trent Howard announced that he would be attending Clemson University. This came just a few days after he decommitted from Tech, and I’m not surprised. If Dabo Swinney calls and says there’s a spot on the roster for you, there aren’t many people who would say no. Especially if your father was good friends with Swinney in college. Best of luck, Trent!
