Jose Alvarado and Moses Wright scheduled to work out today for the Golden State Warriors. At the least, Alvarado is continuing to explore opportunities.— Ken Sugiura (@ksugiuraajc) June 29, 2021
While Jose Alvarado has not officially made a decision on whether or not he’s entering the 2021 NBA Draft and leaving Georgia Tech, he seems to be drawing some attention from professional executives and scouts. Alvarado and draft-committed C Moses Wright were invited to work out with the Golden State Warriors yesterday. Each team gets a limited amount of time to work with the various prospects, so getting invited for a workout is a good indicator of interest. If Alvarado continues to work out with various teams, and picks up positive signals about his draft stock, he probably will not be inclined to return to the Flats this year. We’ll have to see what happens.
It was not a great week for Georgia Tech’s professional golfers on the PGA TOUR, with Stewart Cink the only Jacket making the cut at this year’s Travelers Championship. Cink finished tied for 30th, but did better than the four other Jackets who did not stick around for the weekend. Former Jackets on the Korn Ferry Tour did slightly better, with Seth Reeves ending T3 at the Live and Work in Maine Open (that’s a fun event name). Three other Jackets finished in the top-30. The article above includes a link to a Golf Magazine article that has a story about Bryce Molder and how he pranked noted funny guy Matt Kuchar at a GTAA event. Give it a read!
A big part of the collegiate golf game takes place in the summer, when amateurs compete at hundreds of events across the United States. These tournaments are how players keep their competitive mindsets and prepare for the collegiate season in the fall and spring. Georgia Tech players are doing their best to play in as many of these events as possible, some even in the same tournaments. For example, four Jackets finished in the top 11 at the Northest Amateur last week. Connor Howe was the highest Jacket, tying for third place. The next event for many Yellow Jackets will be next week, when six of them will take on the field at the Monroe Invitational. Good luck, Jackets!
What a great sight to see, two Yellow Jackets enjoying the Cape Cod League!
Question of the Day: Any thoughts on Tech’s recent pro golf performances?
