Georgia Tech basketball Michael Devoe is out with a toe injury according to reports.
Georgia Tech freshman guard Michael Devoe may not be ready for the beginning of the season, as the former four-star recruit is recovering from a toe injury. According to CBS college basketball write Jon Rothstein, Devoe will be sidelined for a couple of weeks before being reevaluated.
Expected to be a heavy contributor as a freshman this season, Devoe was the Jackets highest rated recruit in the 2018 recruiting class. The 6-foot-4, 175-pound combo guard out of Orlando, Florida committed to the Jackets over 19 other schools including Virginia and Miami.
247Sports ranked the Orlando native as the 51st best recruit in the country, the 11th best point guard, and the seventh best out of the state of Florida.
Devoe in 2018 is expected to help replace the hole left behind from first-round pick Josh Okogie. With the loss of Okogie, the Jackets will have to find a way to replace one of the best players in recent history for the program 18.2 points a season ago.
Luckily for the Yellow Jackets, they’ll have sophomore point guard Jose Alvarado returning this season from a fractured elbow that kept him out the last few weeks of last season. Outside of Devoe and Alvarado, the Jackets have no other true point guard on their roster.
The Yellow Jackets will start their season on November 9th against Lamar at McCamish Pavillion. The Jackets will have one exhibition game prior to their season opener on November 9th against Florida Tech.
