Georgia Tech is on the list for four-star prospect Sidney Wilson, a small forward from New York who is a prep-school teammate of Yellow Jackets signee Curtis Haywood.

Wilson was previously a member of the 2018 class, but reclassified as a 2017 prospect, meaning he is now considered a senior. In a tweet Friday, he included Tech among his top six, along with Connecticut, Florida, St. John’s, Syracuse and Texas.

Tech coach Josh Pastner is scrambling to add players to the roster, which now has 10 scholarship players and has space for 13. There are now four prospects whom Pastner and his staff are pursuing – Wheeler High forward Jordan Tucker, Jonesboro High guard M.J. Waker, Princeton graduate transfer forward Hans Brase and Wilson.

Offered a scholarship Sunday by Duke, Tucker is taking an official visit there on Wednesday, according to his Twitter account. Tech and Syracuse appeared to be the top choices for Tucker before Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski came in with a late offer.

Wilson was originally a 2017 prospect but reclassified as a 2018 prospect when he transferred last summer from St. Raymond’s in New York to Brewster Academy in New Hampshire. He announced his decision to reclassify back to 2017 in early May and graduate from high school this year.
