Georgia Tech guard Miles Kelly will return for the 2023-24 season, a program spokesperson confirmed Wednesday.

Tech’s leading scorer in 2022-23 at 14.4 points per game, Kelly declared for the NBA draft in April but maintained his college eligibility. He made 37.9% of his 3-point shots last season as a sophomore.

A 6-foot-6, 175-pound guard, Kelly went for 30 points in a February win at Syracuse and six other times scored at least 20 points during the campaign.

Kelly attended Parkview High before ending his prep career at Hargrave Military Academy.

Kelly seemed to publicly announce his decision to remain with the Yellow Jackets via a social media post May 31.
