Ole Miss center Demarco Cox will transfer to Georgia Tech

The speculation for where Ole Miss transfer Demarco Cox would choose to transfer for his final year of eligibility didn’t last long. After a Thursday visit to the Flats, Cox has decided that he will transfer to Georgia Tech, per a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Cox is on schedule to graduate from Ole Miss at the end of this term, and then will immediately transfer to Georgia Tech, giving him a year of eligibility that will commence in the 2014-15 season for the Jackets.

As we said when the report that Cox was considering Tech first surfaced, this is a load of the shoulders of Jackets head coach Brian Gregory, who desperately needed someone to step into the hole left by Robert Carter, Jr. who decided to transfer out of Tech earlier in the week.

Getting the 6-foot-8, 275 pound frame of Cox into the paint is going to open up a lot more shots for some of Tech’s young guards, and will give freshman Ben Lammers a chance to learn from a veteran player while he bones up his game and adds a little bulk to his wiry frame.
