Georgia Tech quarterback Vad Lee will transfer

Georgia Tech quarterback Vad Lee plans to transfer, according to multiple reports.

Lee, a redshirt sophomore, will have two years of eligibility remaining. He led the Yellow Jackets to a berth in the Music City Bowl where they lost to Ole Miss 25-17 and ended the season 7-6.

Lee cited the use of Tech's triple option offense as his reason for wanting to transfer. Lee will most likely transfer down to a FCS program where he can plan immediately since he already burned his redshirt year. Possible destinations include James Madison, Elon, and Rcihmond. All are closer to his hometown of Durham, North Carolina.
