Kyle Barone from Cornelius, North Carolina has accorded a verbal commitment to the Georgia Institute of Technology for the 2018-19 school year.
“I chose Georgia Tech because of the amazing academics and the athletic program. I felt right at home on campus and with the team and I am very excited for my next four years at Georgia Tech. Go Jackets!”
