The Tigers signed the 6-foot-6, 180-pound guard, who transferred from Georgia Tech. Kelly, a native of Stone Mountain, Georgia, was an All-Atlantic Coast Conference honorable mention player who led the team in scoring with an average of 13.9 points per game. He was also second in rebounding (5.5 rpg) and scored double figures in 24 games, including a career-high 36 points at Louisville and 25 points at Miami (Fla.).

“Miles brings great experience, talent and ability to our back court,” head coach Bruce Pearl said. “He is a tremendous 3-point shooter, an elite defender, has great versatility and wants to win championships. Miles is our 12th player on scholarship and completes our roster. He is an outstanding student and will do a wonderful job in our locker room.”

Kelly appeared in 95 games and made 60 starts for the Yellow Jackets over a three-year span. He averaged 11.1 points per game, making 35 percent of his three-point attempts and 78.6 percent of his free throws. Kelly surpassed 1,000 points in his career against Clemson this season.

Kelly, a consensus four-star prospect from the Atlanta area, attended Parkview High School in Lilburn, Georgia, for his first three years before attending Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Virginia, for his senior season. During his senior year, he was nominated for the McDonald’s All-American Game. Kelly made the honor roll and was on the dean’s list at both schools.
