Offensive guard Parker Braun has been one of Georgia Tech’s best players over the last few years.
Braun was a freshman All-American in 2016, and followed it up with a pair of All-ACC selections.
Of course, the Yellow Jackets will look far different this fall. Paul Johnson resigned after the 2018 season, and the team replaced him with Temple’s Geoff Collins.
That means a move away from Johnson’s famous option attack, which leads to a pretty big overhaul of the system.
Parker Braun has elected to transfer from Georgia Tech to play out his final season.
Virtually every team could use an All-ACC guard to plug into their offensive line. It doesn’t come as a major surprise that Braun has significant suitors.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, he has already visited Florida, and Ohio State and Texas are after him.
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.
The AJC doesn’t have Miami included, but a 247Sports VIP article indicates that he is also interested in the ‘Canes.

Braun, who is also an All-Academic honoree for Georgia Tech, and will graduate in May, allowing him to enroll elsewhere this summer, and play right away in the fall for another team.
