Georgia Tech Transfer Brian Oliver Thinking Big East, Maybe Syracuse

The last time Syracuse Basketball took on a transfer, it worked out pretty well for all parties. While the Orange recently lost one of their own to the transfer process, there's a possibility they might be filing that spot right back up.

According to Adam Zagoria, Georgia Tech transfer Brian Oliver is thinking about moving to a Big East school in the Northeast and that puts Syracuse on the list.

Seton Hall, Rutgers, St. John’s, Syracuse and Georgetown, along with Temple, La Salle and Missouri have expressed interest in the 6-foot-6 sophomore, his mother told SNY.tv.

"He’s finishing summer session 1 right now and is going to take some visits after he gets home," Zena Oliver said by email.

Oliver is also putting George Mason on the list as Mason hired Tech's former coach Paul Hewitt recently.

Oliver informed Georgia Tech on Friday, mentioning that he's been considering the move for a while.

As a sophomore forward in the 2010-11 season, Oliver started 12 of 22 games, missing the last eight with a broken thumb. He averaged 28.0 minutes, 10.5 points and 4.5 rebounds. Oliver said he began to consider transferring after coach Paul Hewitt was fired at the end of the season, but wanted to give Gregory a chance.

When Syracuse beat Georgia Tech 80-76 in Atlantic City back in November, Oliver scored a monster 32 points and basically kept the Jackets in the game.
