Less than 2 weeks ago, it was widely reported (and later confirmed) that Georgia Tech quarterback Vad Lee was transferring from the university, and now, we have clarification of his next destination.
I am so grateful for the 3 years at Tech. But I am excited for another great opportunity to be apart of the James Madison University family!

Lee made the news public via his own Twitter account on Monday night, and he is headed for FCS power James Madison. JMU had a down season in 2013, going 6-6, and with that, it is widely speculated that Lee will be the front-runner to be their starter for 2014.
It is important to note that Lee will be eligible immediately due to the fact that he’s moving down to FCS, and he’ll have 2 full years of eligibility remaining. Many Tech fans are happy to see Lee go after what most thought was a subpar season (45.6% passing, 10 interceptions), but it’s also never a good thing to lose an asset, even if he came under mostly-deserved fire.
Tech fans have already moved on from Lee in terms of the future, but for anyone looking to follow his career moving forward, he’ll be at James Madison.
