Recruiting Update - Zam Fredrick

Nice article about Zam "Buck" and how he will fit in with the Jackets next year. However, notice this comment from Hewitt

Hewitt quote:
"Zam is an outstanding (4.0) student and a great shooter," said Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt on "With Marvin Lewis graduating this year and B.J. Elder looking to move on, we needed to add shooting to the program, so from an athletic and academic standpoint, he is a perfect fit."

Interesting that he says BJ is "looking to move on" next year. That is slightly disappointing. Would be nice to see him provide some senior leadership next year. If you believe what Hewitt says about the this year's team - that experience is the difference, it makes you appreciate seniors all the more.
