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

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.
