Georgia Tech has picked up an interesting recruit over the weekend: Miles Kelly (2021), a 6-5 combo guard currently playing for Hargrave, chose the Yellow Jackets over schools like NC State, Miami and Wake Forest (among others). Wake has already picked up three guards, 6-4 Robert McCray, 6-3 Carter Whitt and 6-5 Cameron Hildreth, who committed over the weekend.

That many guards probably ruled Wake out.

Kelly is thin, which is no great surprise for a high school kid, and pretty athletic. He has an odd shot which starts kind of low and will be harder to do in college. No doubt Josh Pastner will urge him to modify it with a higher release.

His release and weight should improve. The best news for Tech is some offensive talent, something they haven’t had a lot of lately.
