The Jackets have also added a pair of promising transfers at guard Lance Terry (College Park, Ga.) from Gardner-Webb and beyond Yes’ by Franklin (Little Rock, Ark.) from South Alabama, both earned all-conference recognition last season.

Competitive impulse initiative

In a unified effort, Georgia Tech, the Georgia Tech Foundation, Georgia Tech athletics and the Alexander-Tharpe Fund have joined to accelerate scholarship funding for student athletes with the launch of the Competitive Drive Initiative. The initiative kicks off with the Accelerate GT Match program, where any new gift to the AT Fund’s athletic scholarship fund made through Dec. 31 will be matched dollar for dollar by the Georgia Tech Foundation, up to $2.5 million. Should Accelerate GT reach its fundraising goal of $2.5 million, the matching gift would have an impact of $5 million for Georgia Tech athletics.
