Stacey Poole Jr. has decided to restart his college basketball career at Georgia Tech, the former University of Kentucky guard confirmed to Scout.com on Friday night.

Poole played sparingly as a freshman at Kentucky last season and decided to transfer in November after beginning practice with the Cats but before playing in any games this season.

A 6-foot-4 guard, Poole played in 17 games as a freshman. He played 31 minutes, scored six points and had two rebounds.

At Providence High School in Jacksonville, Poole was ranked as the fourth-best small forward and No. 33 overall prospect of 2010 by Rivals.com. He was UK's first signee in the Class of 2010.
