Technical Tidbits 12/8: Georgia Tech Football Adds DT Transfer

New, 1 comment

Tech has a decommit, though.

NCAA Football: Georgia Tech at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Geoff Collins and the rest of the Tech coaching staff are continuing to use the transfer portal just days before the Early National Signing Period. The latest transfer to Atlanta, Makius Scott, comes by way of Columbia, South Carolina and the Gamecocks. Scott was a member of the class of 2020 from Gainesville High (GA), but opted out of this fall’s season. As a recruit, Scott was rated a three-star by both 247Sports (.8639 composite) and Rivals (5.6 rating). Scott is the fourth transfer this cycle, joining LB Kevin Harris, OL Nick Pendley, and DB Kenyatta Watson. Welcome to the Flats, Makius!

On the flip side of things for Tech football recruiting yesterday, OL Eli Richey decommitted. Richey attends Southern Academy in Greensboro, Alabama, and had been a member of Tech’s class of 2021 since early June. Richey is a physical, aggressive offensive lineman who will likely find a spot somewhere in the power five. Richey’s decommitment leaves the Jackets with three offensive linemen in the 2021 class, Weston Franklin, Jakiah Leftwich, and the transfer Pendley. Good luck, Eli!

It felt like a completely different Georgia Tech basketball team was on the court on Sunday against Kentucky. The Jackets limited their turnovers, played good defense, and took solid shots, a reversal from their first two games against Georgia State and Mercer. A leading part of the change for Tech was F Moses Wright, who has been the Jackets’ best player during the young season. Against the Wildcats, Wright went for 21 points and 7 rebounds, and is currently leading the ACC in points per game with 24. Wright is also second in the conference in rebounds per game, with 10.3. If Wright keeps these numbers up, he could be looking at some All-ACC recognition at the end of the season.

Each year, the Ray Guy Award is given out to the best punter in college football. Georgia Tech’s P Pressley Harvin III has been one of the best all season (winning National Punter of the Week twice), and has found himself as a semifinalist for the award. Harvin has had ample opportunities to punt the ball away this year, and has kept up his success even after being injured for the Duke game. Harvin III makes a strong case for the award, and you can help his case by voting in the fan vote at rayguyaward.com.

It looks like we won’t find out the time for Tech’s final game of the regular season until Sunday at the earliest. I’ll be happy with whatever time makes Miami the most unmotivated.

Question of the Day: What do you think of Makius Scott?
