Georgia Tech coach Josh Pastner has received a second commitment for his 2020 signing class, guard Tristan Maxwell from Huntersville, N.C.
Maxwell made his announcement Monday via Twitter after completing an official visit to Tech this past weekend. Maxwell, the son of former NBA veteran Vernon Maxwell, was also offered by N.C. State, Texas A&M, Gonzaga and Georgetown, among others.
Maxwell, listed at 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, is considered to be a versatile player who can play either guard spot and can score both at the basket and also from the perimeter. He was the fourth leading scorer on the Under Armour summer circuit among 17U teams at 18.1 points per game.
Maxwell is rated a three-star prospect and the No. 231 player in the senior class (247 Sports composite). Tech sophomore forwards Kristian Sjolund and Khalid Moore and junior guard Jose Alvarado were in a similar range coming out of high school.
Maxwell can sign with Tech in the early signing period, which is November 13-20. He is in position to join Pastner’s other committed prospect, forward Jordan Meka of Mt. Bethel Christian Academy. Meka, a 6-9 power forward, committed to Tech in September.
