Player: Miles Kelly
Class: Sophomore
Position: Guard

Last Year’s Stats: Last year, Kelly was able to ample experience and playing time, seeing action in 30 games and seeing his minutes increase late in the season.  But in the end, the freshman averaged 4.5 points, 1.4 rebounds, and 0.5 assists per game while shooting 41 percent from the floor and 35 percent from three.

Having been able to watch Kelly at the high school level, what intrigues me about his game is his ability to make shots.  Again, not knowing exactly how the new roster will look in terms of minutes and rotation, Kelly should be one that will receive more time and experience as a sophomore.  One could see that towards the end of the season in which he played over 30 minutes and averaged 17.5ppg in his last two games against Louisville and Boston College. 

His ability to use his wiry, long 6’5 frame to knock down shots from the perimeter and bring that scoring impact to the floor will be extremely key, especially with the players that are now gone from the program. Kelly has a great sense of getting to his spots and has a quick release as well as finding ways to score over defenders with touch.  He has always been extremely confident with his range and has a quick trigger on his shot, something he showcased countless times last year and should only gain even more confidence with his game.

There will be quite a few names that should step up for the Yellow Jackets but Kelly is one that I believe will quickly be a go-to player for Georgia Tech and one to watch in the ACC.
