Julian Royal of Georgia Tech is transferring according to sources at the school. Here are some photos of the Sophomore during his stint at Georgia Tech.
Georgia Tech forward Julian Royal will transfer at the end of the semester. Royal, a sophomore, will have two year of eligibility remaining.
The move does not come as a great surprise. Royal, from Milton High, saw his minutes and role diminish considerably this season. He played in 30 games as a freshman, averaging 16.0 minutes, and his playing time increased from the nonconference season to the ACC schedule as he adjusted to the college game.
This season, with forward Robert Carter’s arrival, coach Brian Gregory largely used a three-man rotation for the frontcourt with Daniel Miller, Kammeon Holsey and Carter. He played in 11 of the 18 conference games, playing double-digit minutes in only one of them.
Royal represented Gregory’s first victory at Tech. After having committed to Tech when Paul Hewitt was coaching, Royal met with Gregory soon after he was hired at Tech, and Gregory convinced him to keep his commitment. He was the only member of his recruiting class.
