HARRISONBURG,Va. (WHSV) -- Former Georgia Tech starting quarterback Vad Lee announced via Twitter today that he is transferring to James Madison for the upcoming football season.
Lee was 7-6 as the starter for the Yellow Jackets, and decided to leave the program after Georgia Tech ended its season with a loss in the Music City Bowl to Ole Miss.
Lee started all 13 games for the Yellow Jackets this season, throwing for 1,561 yards, 11 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. He also rushed for an additional 513 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013.
Lee still has 2 years of eligibility remaining and will not have to sit out a year. Lee is expected to compete for Madison's starting quarterback job this fall.
