A change of pace on this beautiful Friday evening as we take a look at Georgia Tech basketball recruiting.
Usually, we take a look at Georgia Tech football’s recruiting effort, with the week being rather quiet, we’ve decided to change it up here today and take a look at Georgia Tech basketball’s recruiting effort.
In today’s edition, we take a look at one recruit naming Georgia Tech in his top five and the Jackets trying to dip back into their New York pipeline.
Orlando Robinson narrows list to top five:
Four star center Orlando Robinson, who the Yellow Jackets offered earlier this month has narrowed list his to five programs. The Las Vegas native and California prep star announced his top five on Thursday and despite having offers from top tier programs like Kansas, Robinson’s top five is rather interesting.
As you can see above, Robinson’s list consists of Boise State, Fresno State, Georgia Tech, Louisville, and Oregon State. It’s certainly a wide range of programs in terms of program prestige, education and distance from home just to name a few.
Robinson will be taking official visits to each of his top five schools with the following schedule supplied by Jake Weingarten
Georgia Tech dipping back into New York:
Georgia Tech basketball and the New York prep ranks have a long and illustrious history. The Jackets, a year ago was able to add Jose Alvarado to their program from the Empire State and now their looking to add another New York native.
On Friday, the Jackets offered Aundre Hyatt, a native of White Plains, New York which is 25 miles away from Manhattan.
Hyatt is ranked by 247Sports as a four-star recruit, a top-150 player in the nation, the 38th ranked strong forward, and the fifth best player in New York, overall he’s a solid player and according to reports could see a rankings rise over the next few months.
Currently, there is no true leader for Hyatt in his recruitment with Rutgers having just one crystal ball on 247Sports.
