Ex-Georgia Tech QB Vad Lee headed to James Madison
Former Georgia Tech starting quarterback Vad Lee took to Twitter to announce his move to James Madison.
Former Georgia Tech quarterback Vad Lee plans to finish his college career at James Madison, according to his Twitter account.
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!— Vad Lee (@_VL2) January 13, 2014
Lee's departure from Georgia Tech came just days after the 2013 season ended with a 25-17 loss to Ole Miss in the Music City Bowl. The redshirt sophomore from Durham, N.C. has two years of eligibility left and will not have to sit out a year due to NCAA's transfer rules because James Madison competes at the FCS level.
Lee completed just 45.6 percent of his passes, throwing for 1,561 yards, 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in his first year as a starter. Georgia Tech's offense averaged 6.10 yards per play with him calling the shots in the option attack; good for fourth in the ACC. However, according to ESPN, Lee was never a big fan of Paul Johnson's offense.
If Lee wins the starting job at James Madison, his first game will be against another former member of the ACC as the Dukes open the 2014 season at Maryland, now a member of the Big Ten. However there is no guarantee that Lee will be the starter next season, with first-year coach Everett Withers inheriting an experienced starting quarterback in Michael Birdsong.
