Technical Tidbits 9/29: Taking a Look at Tech’s Lone 2021 Basketball Commit

NCAA Basketball: Pittsburgh at Georgia Tech Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

In a surprising move, Miles Kelly committed to the Georgia Tech basketball team last Friday. I say it was surprising because no one had connected the dots between Kelly and the Jackets before he committed. According to the article above, he has worked extremely hard over the past few months to get to the position he’s in. Kelly is a high four-star prospect (.9434 247Sports Composite) and is ranked as the no. 112 player in the class of 2021. Kelly was at Parkview High in Gwinnett County, GA but willy play this season at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, VA. This is Josh Pastner’s first commit of the 2021 class (and second highest with Georgia Tech). Welcome to the Flats, Miles!

Whether you’re a fan of Michael Cunningham or not, he wrote a pretty realistic article about Georgia Tech’s performance against Syracuse on Saturday. As Cunningham points out, there wasn’t much good about it. The team looked undisciplined (15 penalties) and lifeless at times. The offensive line was not great and the defense had its share of struggles. Luckily, this week is an open date to get things figured out for Geoff Collins & co.

While you don’t want to see him too often, Pressley Harvin III has been a bright spot on a bad Tech team the past couple of weeks. Harvin was once again named to “Ray’s 4,” a weekly list of the four best punters from the previous week’s games. Against Syracuse, Harvin hit a 64-yard bomb and averaged just under 50 yards (49.3) over seven punts. Last week, Harvin was voted the “Ray Guy Award National Punter of the Week.” You can vote for Harvin again at this link. Congratulations, Pressley!

Professional golf is hard, playing professional golf as a college athlete is even harder. Except for Noah Norton (and Phil Mickelson), it seems. Norton finished tied for eighth place at the Korn Ferry Tour’s Wichita Open along with former Jacket Ollie Schniederjans. By virtue of his top-10 finish, he has gained entry into this week’s KFT Savannah Golf Championship. This is a big step in the right direction for Norton’s career. Keep it up, Noah!

While it’s belated, it is still worth recognizing. Happy late birthday Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field!
