    We will have one of the deepest back courts in the country next season if the immediate transfer rule is passed.
    If it’s not, he will be the perfect replacement to have after Jose leaves. Doesn’t leave us scrambling for an option (GT/fresh) next offseason.

    Good job by CJP to lock him in.

    Can I get a scouting report? Also, have to think he has a great chance of being eligible right away no matter what.

    Huge news! I'd have loved to land Kyle out of HS. Now we have our 2021 PG in a PG class that's weak nationally.

    Great job by CJP and staff. Really like the state of Georgia focus with our transfers.

    Looks like a big, strong, pass-first point guard. Should be able to help on defense right away with teams with big guards. Not sure what kind of upside we have on the offensive end.

    NICE!

    Seems like a lot of us on this board were high on him at the time:

    https://gtswarm.com/threads/pg-kyle-sturdivant-dr3amchasin.14907/v

    Hopefully he can find the form that made him a highly coveted PG coming out of HS. If he develops the way we hope, there's a real possibility of having back to back tournament teams even after Alvarado graduates. A Sturdivant/Devoe/Maxwell backcourt to go with a 4 star 7'1 center (Saba) developed by Reveno is a nice foundation for future years. Now we need some high impact wings who can shoot and create.

    I would still like to see us pick up a HS PG that buys into the 'get old' philosophy. I like having multiple ball handling-hawking PGs so that we can rotate and keep them fresh during the season.

    Welcome aboard Mr. Sturdivant. May be just what the doctor ordered.

    First off welcome to GT Kyle.

    Second my condolences to your family. (his father died in February).

    As DTM mentioned, this is your starting PG in 2021. and depending upon how the one free transfer rule ends up - he will have either 3 yrs starting this fall or 3 yrs starting fall of 2021.

    I mean he still has 3 years so fits the get old bill pretty well.

    I look at those transfers we lost, and looks like CJP is playing big boy ball.

    5 top 150 players on our roster next year.

    It is interesting how we have a problem getting hi school player but now seem to be a landing place for transfers who are originally from Ga.

    Good addition. Gives us a third year player when Jose graduates. Good potential. The way I look at it is we basically traded Price for Sturdivant, especially if he is immediately eligible next year. Thought Price had some upside, but with Maxwell coming in I think we came out on the right side of this in terms of addressing long term needs.

    Great news. Welcome.

    How will the remaining recruiting restrictions be expected to affect us? We seem to be doing better with them.

    I've been thinking the same thing for a while. I wonder why that seems to be the case.
