Georgia Tech leaning on transfers again in 2015-16

Brian Gregory didn’t shy away from relying on transfers in his first four years at Georgia Tech, most recently with Trae Golden playing a major role in the 2013-14 season and Charles Mitchell, Demarco Cox and Robert Sampson making significant contributions last winter. Five of the Yellow Jackets’ 13 current scholarship players began their careers at other schools, and three of those will be eligible at Tech for the first time this season.

Former Virginia Tech shooting guard Adam Smith, former Alabama big man Nick Jacobs and former Arkansas-Little Rock forward James White will all be seeing their first action with the Jackets this season. All three are key additions for head coach Brian Gregory, whose team finished 14th in the league last year. Jacobs and Smith, in particular, could start immediately.
