Former Georgia Tech football players Joseph Gilbert and Clyde Yandell have been admitted into Georgia State’s graduate school programs and will join the Panthers’ football team. They will enroll in school in August.
Gilbert, a 6-2, 280-pound native of Cartersville, started 26 of the past 27 games at right guard for the Yellow Jackets after redshirting as a freshman. Yandell, a 6-5, 287-pound native of St. Augustine, Fla., saw spot duty at tackle the past two seasons after redshirting as a freshman. Georgia State also announced it added former Auburn tight end Bailey Woods. Gilbert and Yandell are management majors at Tech.
All three players have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
“To be able to add these three student-athletes to our program is truly a blessing,” GSU coach Bill Curry said in a statement. “Of course all three are excellent students and talented football players who bring size and experience that will help us tremendously. And the fact that they and their families have chosen to make this important step in their lives as part of our program at Georgia State really means a great deal.”
