Smith starts new chapter at Georgia Tech (Roanoke Times)

THE FLATS – Adam Smith didn’t elect to transfer from Virginia Tech with the idea of coming to Georgia Tech, but once he began mulling over the possibilities, he decided coming back home was the best place to be.

The native of Jonesboro, Ga., competed often against the likes of Marcus Georges-Hunt, Charles Mitchell, James White and Nick Jacobs while growing up in the area, and now finds himself teammates with those individuals on a senior-laden Yellow Jacket team that will benefit from Smith’s scoring and shooting capabilities.

One of the top three-point marksmen in the Atlantic Coast Conference in his last two seasons at Virginia Tech, he averaged 12.7 points and hit 40.7 percent of his three-point attempts in 47 games for the Hokies. He averaged a team-high 13.4 points and shot 42.4 percent from three-point range last season.

Smith graduated in May from Virginia Tech with his bachelor’s degree in communications and is enrolled in the music technology graduate program at Georgia Tech, concentrating in music production and multimedia.

Smith wore No. 3 for the Hokies, but will wear No. 2 for the Yellow Jackets.
