Georgia Tech Football: Jackets Add Northwestern WR Transfer Kyric McGowan

Geoff Collins and his Georgia Tech football program continue to hit the transfer portal hard as on Saturday afternoon, they added Northwestern wide receiver transfer Kyric McGowan.

Georgia Tech added their seventh transfer during the 2021 recruiting cycle to the roster on Saturday when Northwestern wide receiver Kyric McGowan announced he’ll be returning home to Georgia to finish his collegiate career. The Dalton, Georgia native entered the transfer portal late last month right before Christmas.

McGowan will help a Georgia Tech offense make up for the losses of Ahmarean Brown and Jalen Camp this offseason. Brown, transferred away from the program and has since landed with South Carolina while Camp is chasing his NFL Dreams.

Over his four seasons with the Wildcats, McGowan recorded 66 receptions for 773-yards and two touchdowns. He, however, has not reached the end zone since 2018. That being said, the 5-foot-11, 205-pound wideout is coming off a career-high 34 receptions for 366-yards, an average of 10.8 yards per reception.

McGowan was originally a three-star recruit out of the 2017 recruiting class as a running back and received 23 scholarship offers from mostly G5 and FCS programs. He did have several Power Five offers though the Yellow Jackets were not one of them.
