Georgia Tech 'in great position' with recruit Kristian Sjolund

Georgia Tech coach Josh Pastner may get his first commitment from a versatile wing player from Houston with Norwegian roots.

Kristian Sjolund, a small forward whose recruiting picked up over the summer, came to Tech Saturday for an official visit. Baylor, Ole Miss, Colorado, Washington State and Illinois are among schools hoping for official visits from Sjolund, according to his AAU coach, Stephon Leary of the Shooting Stars.

“He’s a very skilled, athletic kid and has a lot to offer,” Leary said Sunday. “A good, all-around game. He can pass it, dribble it, shoot it.”
