Former Georgia Tech guard Solomon Poole has transferred to Florida Atlantic in Boca Raton, Fla. He will sit out the 2014-15 season and be eligible to play in 2015-16. He will have two years of eligibility remaining.

After graduating from high school early, Poole came to Tech in Dec. 2012 as a highly-touted prospect out of Jacksonville, Fla., ranked in the top 100 in his class by ESPN. He played 21 games, averaging nine minutes per game and 1.8 points per game. Last season, he played 14 games, starting five, but first was held out in January for medical issues and then was dismissed from the team Feb. 3 for what coach Brian Gregory called “conduct and accountability issues.”

Poole’s brother Stacey Poole, who also played for Tech for the past two seasons after transferring from Kentucky, did not have his scholarship renewed for the coming season.
