Georgia Tech took a hit a couple days ago (not sure how I missed the news) when Robert Carter Jr announced he will transfer from the school.

At a time when Brian Gregory desperately needs to show progress in his rebuilding effort at Georgia Tech, the fourth-year Yellowjackets head coach instead endured a setback that could make taking a step forward difficult next season.
Robert Carter, the cornerstone of Gregory's first recruiting class and one of the better young big men in the ACC last season, has decided to transfer, the school announced Tuesday evening. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 11.4 points and 8.4 rebounds during a sophomore season interrupted by a torn meniscus that sidelined him all of January.
"Transferring has become commonplace; it is now part of the culture and fabric of the college basketball landscape," Gregory said in a school-released statement." You have to move on and keep building. Our returning players are poised to have exceptional seasons and we are excited about our incoming class and their ability to positively impact our program."

With both Daniel Miller and Kammeon Holsey graduation and Carter's transfer, a huge hole is left in the Georgia Tech frontcourt. One answer will be incoming transfer Robert Sampson, previously at East Carolina. The other spot will likely have to be filled by a freshman, possibly AD Gueye or Ben Lammers.
No doubt Brian Gregory's seat just got a bit hotter.
