On the same day that former Georgia Tech forward Julian Royal announced his decision to transfer to George Mason, the Yellow Jackets announced the departure of another player from the program.
6-3 junior guard Brandon Reed has made the decision to transfer, and he will do so after completing his degree during summer school. The hope is that as a result Reed will be eligible to play immediately at his next school.
“We appreciate everything Brandon has done for our program,” head coach Brian Gregory said in a statement released by the school. “He has been an integral part of this team over the last two years. We’re excited that he will be earning a Georgia Tech degree and wish him success in his final year of eligibility.”
Reed began his collegiate career at Arkansas State, where he averaged 15.1 points and 3.4 rebounds per contest during the 2009-10 season. After earning Sun Belt Freshman of the Year honors Reed made the decision to return to his home state and play at Georgia Tech.
Reed started 43 games in two seasons at Georgia Tech but saw his playing time decrease to 16.6 minutes per game as a redshirt junior. Last season Reed shot just 35.9% from the field and averaged 5.2 points and 2.6 rebounds per game.
Georgia Tech was a young team on the perimeter last season despite the presence of Reed and Mfon Udofia, with Chris Bolden and Marcus Georges-Hunt seeing plenty of minutes.
There’s also the presence of Solomon Poole (who joined the program mid-year) and 2013 signee Travis Jorgenson to be accounted for, and that likely meant that Reed would have a tougher time earning minutes in 2013-14.
