Georgia Tech basketball coach Paul Hewitt is pleased with his recruiting class, and especially the way the Yellow Jackets landed 6-11 center Daniel Miller, the final addition last month. Because archrival Georgia completely released Miller from the letter of intent he signed with the Bulldogs last November, Miller was able to sign with the Yellow Jackets and doesn’t have to sit out a season.
“The last one we got was honestly a gift,” Hewitt told jacketsonline.com. “I told people I cannot say anything bad about Georgia for a least a month because we got Daniel Miller. To have him at the end has been a very positive thing for us.”
Of course, South Atlanta High star Derrick Favors was the highlight among the six players signed by Tech, which limped to a 12-19 finish last season. But Miller proved to be satisfying because it had seemed the Jackets had pursued him in vain.
Also, the Jackets may have football receiver Stephen Hill available. Tech football coach Paul Johnson gave Hill his blessing to play once his duties for the football team are discharged.
