Florida State guard and Dunwoody High grad Pierre Jordan will transfer to Georgia Tech, according to Atlanta Celtics founder Karl McCray. Jordan, who earned his degree from FSU this past week, will be eligible to play immediately.
Having played two years after a medical redshirt year, Jordan has two years of eligibility remaining. This past season, Jordan played in 16 games, averaging .6 points in 5.1 minutes. Jordan, who won two state titles with Dunwoody, will provide more depth for the Jackets, who sorely need it. Prior to coach Brian Gregory adding walk-ons Nick Foreman and Derek Craig on scholarship, Tech had eight players on scholarship, having lost Iman Shumpert to the NBA and Brian Oliver in a transfer to Seton Hall.
