NCAA Basketball: Georgia Tech at N.C. State Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

I have used a lot of words criticizing Josh Pastner’s inability to close with recruits. This is a step in the right direction, as PF Jordan Meka from Marietta, GA committed to Tech over schools like georgia and Mississippi State. Front court depth will be an issue after this season, so look for Meka to get some crucial minutes starting his freshman year.

Besides uga and Clemson, this is probably the game the coaching staff had circled the most at the start of the season. For most of them, it will be a return to their former employer, and they will be able to reconnect with some of their former players. Hopefully, that won’t make any affect on how Tech plays, and they leave Philadelphia with a win.

The Beesball team will look to build upon a disappointing NCAA Regional loss last year, and one way to help start that process is a great recruiting class. This seems to be a great one, as the Jackets have gotten a top-five class in the nation. It seems to be led by two players who were selected in the MLB Draft but instead decided to come to Tech, Tres Gonzalez (OF/LHP) and Zach Maxwell (RHP/1B). Congratulations to all the players who are coming to The Flats!

This is a perfect fit for the everyone involved. It speaks to the message of the Institute, and will provide more opportunity for improvement in all facets of the Georgia Tech athletics experience.

Buster Posey? No, it’s Joey Bart. At this performance rate, and with Posey gaining in age, Bart will be in the Majors in no time. Keep it up Joey!
