Technical Tidbits 4/3: Georgia Tech Basketball Adds Trojan Transfer

The guard comes is originally from Norcross.

Josh Pastner is definitely preparing for the departure of Jose Alvarado after this coming season. Pastner signed guard Tristan Maxwell in the 2020 recruiting class, and yesterday USC transfer Kyle Sturdivant announced that he would be joining the Jackets. Sturdivant is a rising sophomore guard originally coming from Norcross High School in Norcross, GA as a three-star prospect. Sturdivant played in 21 games for the Trojans this past season, averaging 2 points and 1.1 rebounds per game. Sturdivant had a career high of 11 points against Marquette in the Orlando Invitational. This looks like a good add for the Jackets, and will add much needed depth at the guard position. Welcome to the Flats, Kyle!

This is a great article by Steve Hummer that shows how Tech Head Football Coach Geoff Collins is staying positive during the COVID-19 pandemic. Collins is still working and motivating players and coaches from a (social) distance, while taking the time to be with his family. This isn’t the most pleasant time for anyone in the world, but we all just have to be like Collins and “stay positive.”

I’m pretty sure we all know who’s number one on this list: Calvin Johnson. Johnson is arguably the best player to play for Tech in the past quarter-century, and possibly the best player to play for Tech period. The only other player named to the quarter-century team was Kelly Campbell, who played a few years before Johnson and set many of the records Johnson broke. Hopefully, under Geoff Collins, the tradition of great receivers will continue. Ahmarean Brown will definitely be a name to watch in the coming years.

Behind Jahmyr Gibbs, Jeff Sims is probably the most noteworthy recruit of Geoff Collins’ 2020 recruiting class. This article gives an in-depth breakdown of Sims’ skills and weaknesses as a QB. While Sims does have some problems that he’ll need to fix, like staring down receivers before throwing the ball and having poor ball security, he does have great talents and could be Tech’s QB of the future. I’m looking forward to his next few years on the Flats!

We weren’t already socially distancing ourselves from georgia fans?
