Cosmic Cocktail in 2 weeks: Get your ticket today before they sell out.

Former Maryland forward Charles Mitchell transferring to Georgia Tech

On Friday, Georgia Tech lost forward Robert Carter to Maryland.

Today, the Yellow Jackets got a Terp in exchange.

"I'm a G tech yellow jacket now," former Maryland forward Charles Mitchell tweeted. "It's going to feel great playing right at home."

Mitchell, who in May announced that he was leaving the program to be closer to home, settled on the Yellow Jackets, who play not far from his Atlanta home.

Georgia Tech had a need for frontcourt help after Carter's departure. He averaged 11.4 points and 8.4 rebounds in 13 games with the Yellow Jackets last season.

Mitchell, who unlike Carter could receive a waiver to play immediately, averaged 6.5 points and 6.3 rebounds per game during his sophomore season. 

His transfer decision leaves Nick Faust (City) as the only player among the five departing Terps who hasn't decided on his next stop. Seth Allen is headed to Virginia Tech, Shaquille Cleare to Texas and Roddy Peters to South Florida.
