Bulldogs' request to talk to Robert Carter about transfer denied by Georgia Tech

Georgia reached out to Georgia Tech in regards to Robert Carter but were denied permission to speak to him about a transfer.

Chip Towers of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Georgia Athletic Director Greg McGarity requested permission from Georgia Tech to talk to Robert Carter about a possible transfer but that request was ultimately denied by Yellow Jackets' AD Mike Bobinsky.

"Well, as per NCAA rules, we asked for permission to visit with (Carter), but unfortunately that permission was denied by Georgia Tech," McGarity said Wednesday. "And that was very disappointing in light of the situation we had with Daniel Miller."

Carter informed head coach Brian Gregory earlier this week that he intended to transfer dealing a huge blow to the Yellow Jackets. He will have two years of eligibility remaining following the transfer. According to Ken Sugiura's article on the transfer, Carter will be allowed to transfer anywhere except to another ACC school or to Georgia.

By Tech's standard agreement with transfers, Carter will be allowed to transfer anywhere except for another ACC school or Georgia. When he filed his transfer papers, he did not immediately grant permission to any schools to contact him, a wish list that often indicates a player's thinking.

Georgia has a very liberal transfer policy that isn't shared by most other schools in the country. Interesting that McGarity chose to bring up Daniel Miller who originally committed to the Bulldogs but was given his release after Dennis Felton was let go. Georgia didn't place a restriction on Miller who later signed with Tech and went on to have a solid career.
