Georgia Tech transfer PF/C Rodney Howard immediately eligible for 2020 season

Rodney Howard announced his decision to transfer from Georgia to Georgia Tech in late March. Around four months later, Howard’s received a waiver from the NCAA; he will be immediately eligible for the 2020-21 season, according to Jon Rothstein.

The 6-foot-10 Howard committed to Georgia as part of their monster 2019 recruiting class, which was led by Anthony Edwards — the potential No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, Georgia’s class, with Edwards and Howard, ranked 11th nationally, per 247 Sports.

During his freshman season with the Bulldogs, Howard played in 24 games — two starts, 176 minutes. In total, he scored 31 points and collected 35 rebounds.

Before committing to Georgia Tech, Howard also considered Cincinnati and College of Charleston while in the NCAA transfer portal.

In a super small sample this season, Howard posted a block rate of 8.8 percent. With James Banks graduating, Howard could help Moses Wright anchor Georgia Tech’s defense.
