Former Maryland offensive lineman Nick Brigham has transferred to Georgia Tech. He will be a walk-on to the team and have the opportunity to earn a scholarship. Brigham, a Marist School grad, withdrew from Maryland in September, citing personal reasons. He began classes Monday.
“He looks good and seems happy and ready to go and excited about Georgia Tech,” Marist coach Alan Chadwick said. “I think he’ll definitely fit into that offensive system extremely well.”
ESPN.com rated him the No. 28 player in Georgia and the No. 24 guard in the country coming out of Marist, which has also sent former B-back Preston Lyons and current backs Matt Connors and Sam McNearney to Tech, among many others. Marist runs an offense similar to Tech’s.
Tech recruited Brigham in high school, but Brigham committed to Maryland shortly after the end of his junior season and remained firm to the school. Chadwick said that “it just didn’t quite work out for him there.”
