Georgia Tech added a second tight end to the roster Thursday with Connecticut grad transfer Tyler Davis. He’ll have one year of eligibility with the Yellow Jackets and will enroll in January.

Davis has played in all 36 of the Huskies’ games the past three seasons and has started 15, including 11 this season. He’ll add experience to the position following Wednesday’s signing of Dylan Deveney, a high school prospect from New Jersey.

This past season, Davis caught 22 passes for 237 yards and six touchdowns. Davis, 6-foot-4 and 243 pounds, is from North Bellmore, N.Y. Playing in the American Athletic Conference, Tech coach Geoff Collins faced Davis each of the past two seasons. In this season’s game, a 57-7 win for Temple, Davis caught two passes for 15 yards.

Davis earned a degree in financial management in three years at Connecticut and began a master’s program this past semester.

Including grad transfers, Tech has now added 18 players to the roster in the early signing period.
