Former Georgia Tech QB Vad Lee lands at James Madison

Former Georgia Tech quarterback Vad Lee has decided to transfer to FCS school James Madison, he tweeted out on Monday.


Since the redshirt sophomore is headed to an FCS program, he will be able to play right away. He announced his departure a few days after the Yellow Jackets fell to Ole Miss in the Music City Bowl.

Lee played all 13 games for Georgia Tech this past season and was the team’s leading passer with 1,561 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was also intercepted 10 times and the team’s third-leading rusher with 513 yards and eight touchdowns.

There’s no guarantee he’ll win the starting quarterback job at JMU right away as the Dukes have some experience at the position, plus Lee — who cut his teeth on Paul Johnson’s triple option offense the past couple seasons — will no doubt need time to adjust to a new offensive system.

    One would think the article would mention “why” he transferred?

    Was wondering why, myself. You usually don’t get a starting qb job at a BCS school , only to transfer down to fcs.

    Still hoping to find out why he transferred. How about it, Chris?
