Josh Heath commits to Georgia Tech

Two weeks after being granted his release from USF, freshman PG Josh Heath has found a new college home.

The former Tampa Prep standout, who led the Terrapins to their only state championship in 2012, is transferring to Georgia Tech. The news was confirmed by his father Stan, who was dismissed as Bulls coach on March 14. Stan Heath said his son will be a scholarship player for the ACC program.

Josh Heath visited the Yellow Jackets' downtown Atlanta campus this weekend. Jackets coach Brian Gregory and Stan Heath were assistants to Michigan State coach Tom Izzo when the Spartans won the 2000 national title.

Though NCAA rules typically require Division I transfers to sit out a season, Heath is expected to be eligible immediately. The NCAA consistently has granted eligibility waivers to student-athletes whose fathers lose their coaching jobs.

Heath, forced to relinquish his redshirt in January due to PG Anthony Collins' lingering knee problems, had 62 assists and 27 turnovers in 17 games for the Bulls (12-20).
