Georgia Tech guard Parker Braun will take a visit to Florida this weekend as he considers his options as a grad transfer. Braun, a two-time All-ACC selection, has elected to leave Tech as a grad transfer with a season of eligibility remaining.

Texas and Ohio State are also are possibilities, according to a person familiar with the situation. The interest of three teams who could begin next season in the top 10 speaks to Braun’s potential to contribute to a national-championship contender. Braun arguably was Tech’s best player for the past two seasons. Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi called him “special,” adding that “if any line in the country had five of those guys, they would win a ton of football games.”

Braun chose to leave Tech for a variety of factors.

Braun is on track to graduate in May with a degree in literature, media and communication. Earlier this week, he was named to the All-ACC academic team for the third consecutive time.
