    Chris Bolden tweeted to him and said "Welcome to GT"

    Would be a huge get for us.

    Though I won't say who, I know someone very close to Trae and about two weeks ago he told me Trae was "99% sure" that he would be coming to Tech.

    Trae averaged 12 ppg 2.9 RPG and 3.9 APG last year.

    I was told he would have to sit out a year though. If true, that leaves us with 4 PGs on the roster next year: Golden, Heyward, Jorgensen and Poole.

    Not sure how I feel about this one. He only has one year left to play right?

    I'd hoped Poole or Jorg would be good enough to man the PG spot, but I guess adding experienced guard depth can't hurt. I just hope Golden doesn't impede their growth.

    I also worried that the continued pursuit of PGs meant something to Heyward's recovery. Hope all is well though.

    I have played ball with Trae numerous times and live in the same area. He is really good and an extremely hard worker. He will be a catalyst for our offense.

    All-SEC second team. 12.1 ppg. Good pickup.

    Any word on his father? Article makes it sound like he's transferring cause he's ill.

    Has he been accepted by the GT academic people?

    If he is in for GT, he can play both the 1 & 2 spots with equal ability. 80% career free throw.

    He'll likely be a 2 guard for us I assume. Seems like he could fill the same roll glen rice Jr played in Gregory's first year (not team delinquent I hope) able to bring the ball up when needed but otherwise an effective wing.

    This should be a good pickup for GT. He'll need to improve his defense, though.

    Probably him if he earns it by working hard as well.

    I hope this works out. Gregory is a good defensive coach, but his offense is some plodding stuff, hopefully this guy will speed up the action.

    Golden is good at being a floor general. He can run an offense pretty well.
