Georgia Tech will bring in Canisius guard Kassius Robertson for an official visit. Robertson is seeking to play his final season as a graduate transfer and would have immediate eligibility.

The date for the visit has not been set. Robertson reportedly also is taking an official visit to Missouri.

Robertson, 6-foot-3 and 175 pounds, led the Griffins in scoring this past season with 16.1 points per game. He shot 50.3 percent on 2-point field-goal attempts and 41.0 percent on 3-point tries. He is from Toronto. He was second-team All-MAAC this season.

Robertson’s plans were first reported by CBS Sports.

Tech has four spots available for the 2017 class and is scrambling to try to fill them. Among the high-school possibilities: Guard M.J. Walker of Jonesboro High, forward Jordan Tucker of Wheeler High, forward Evan Cole from South Forsyth High, guard Amauri Hardy from North Farmington High in Farmington Hills, Mich., and guard Joel Ayayi, a French prospect who made an official visit last weekend.

Tech also is pursuing Washington forward Noah Dickerson, an Atlantan who is considering transferring, but is not certain. Another graduate transfer that Tech has been recruiting is Princeton forward Hans Brase.
