Georgia Tech has landed one of the nation’s top basketball transfers.

James White, a 6-foot-7 forward who is from Jonesboro, committed to Georgia Tech on Thursday. White recently graduated from Arkansas-Little Rock and has one year remaining of basketball eligibility.

It was a big recruiting win for Tech, which beat out schools such as Alabama, Boston College, UGA, Alabama and Oklahoma State for White.

This past season at UALR, White averaged 11.9 points and 6.6 rebounds in 15 games before missing the rest of the year with a stress fracture in his leg.

White is a crowd favorite for his electrifying dunks.
