ATLANTA — Georgia Tech junior Brandon Reed will complete his degree requirements at the end of the summer term and transfer to another school for his final year of basketball eligibility, Yellow Jackets coach Brian Gregory announced Friday.

The 6-3 Reed, a former Whitefield Academy standout, started Georgia Tech’s first 15 games in 2012-13 and averaged 5.2 points per game for the season. He shot a career-best 38.4 percent from 3-point range.

In two seasons at Tech after transferring from Arkansas State, Reed started 43 games and averaged 6.4 points and shot 31.8 percent from 3-point range. He was the Sun Belt Conference freshman of the year in 2009-10 before sitting out the 2010-11 season at Georgia Tech.

Reed is at least the fourth Cobb County product set to transfer to a new program for the 2013-14 season.

Former Walton standout Ryan Harrow transferred from Kentucky to Georgia State due to family reasons, while McEachern product Trae Golden is leaving Tennessee, which the Knoxville News-Sentinel reported was a forced move due to academic issues. Jelan Kendrick, who graduated from Wheeler, will play at UNLV next season after most recently playing at Indian Hills Community College in Iowa.
