Georgia Tech has featured two of the greatest New York City point guards in history in Kenny Anderson and Stephon Marbury.
Now Jose Alvarado is hoping to following in their footsteps.
Alvarado, the 5-foot-11-inch point guard from Middle Village (N.Y.) Christ the King High School, verbally committed to new coach Josh Pastner and Georgia Tech on Thursday at his school, spurning the two New Jersey schools who had hoped to add him to their backcourt in 2017.
“Me, my family and I thought it was the best fit for me,” he said Thursday. “It was a tough decision but I’m gonna be a Yellow Jacket.”
