Four-star combo guard Jaeden Mustaf has committed to Georgia Tech, becoming the highest-ranked recruit to choose the Yellow Jackets in well over a decade. Ranked as the No. 50 overall prospect in the 2024 class, a player of this caliber has not committed to the program since Iman Shumpert in 2008.
Mustaf, who stands 6-foot-5 and weighs roughly 205 pounds, chose new head coach Damon Stoudamire and Georgia Tech over the likes of Indiana, NC State, Maryland, Florida State, and others.
In July, Mustaf announced he would be transferring from Carmel Christian in N.C., down south to Overtime Elite, in the heart of Atlanta. He will have plenty of time to get accustomed to the city of ATL before moving just down the street when he enrolls in college.
Mustaf discusses his commitment to Georgia Tech
Jaeden Mustaf broke down his decision to choose Georgia Tech in an interview with On3.
“I chose GT because of coach Damon Stoudamire. He believes in me and I believe in what he is building here in ATL. The academics at this school are second to none and he is a legend at the point guard position and I can learn so much from him.”
In his own words, what type of player is Georgia Tech getting in Jaeden Mustaf?
“I would describe myself as a do it all player, a leader, a hard worker and a winner. I can score in all types of ways, I can play-make and I play defense at a very high level.”
Mustaf has a message for all the GT fans.
“I want GT fans to know, GT is coming back up as a top program and we are going to win a lot of games in my time there. They also should know they are getting someone who is always going to work hard on and off the court.”
“Jaeden Mustaf is a big-bodied wing who plays with a straight line burst. He is a jack-of-all-trades type of wing in that he can handle, shoot, and pass, playing multiple positions on the floor. Mustaf is a good team defender and rebounds well for his wing position. The jump shot needs work as it is streaky and a bit of a push shot right now, but he makes it some. As a long-armed 6-foot-5 wing, there are many things teams can do with Mustaf, and he is a triple-double threat each time he steps on the floor. His father, Jerrod Mustaf, was a first-round NBA draft pick in 1990.” – On3’s Jamie Shaw
