ESPNU reported earlier tonight that New Hampton (N.H.) senior guard Travis Jorgensen has verbally committed to Georgia Tech for the 2013-14 season.
Jorgensen, a Columbia, Mo. native, transferred to the New Hampton, N.H. campus this season after three years at Rock Bridge (Mo.) High. He initially committed to Missouri in September 2011 but re-opened his commitment last October. In addition to Tech, Jorgensen also took official visits to Boston College and Creighton this season.
ESPN's Northeast recruiting analyst Adam Finkelstein has more on Jorgensen's commitment, which you can find HERE (Insider-only) . Below is a partial excerpt:
Jorgenson also helps Georgia Tech address two of its top needs for next season. First, he’s a “pace point guard" -- meaning he creates tempo by pushing the ball with both the pass and the dribble -- and that will help Gregory and his staff get back to playing the up-tempo style that brought them so much success during their time at Dayton.
Secondly, Jorgenson has a good understanding of how to play the pick and roll, which has been another consistent staple of Gregory’s offensive style in years past. Jorgenson is not only adept at turning the corner and finding the roll man, but he is also able to spot open teammates replacing up from the baseline or spacing out on the opposite side of the floor.
