The No. 37 prospect of the Class of 2013 graduated high school early and has already enrolled at Georgia Tech.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets basketball team is set to receive a mid-season boost from point guard Solomon Poole after the Jacksonville-native graduated high school early and enrolled at Georgia Tech. The younger brother of fellow GT basketball team member Stacey Poole is cleared to begin practicing with the team on Saturday.

Poole spoke with Ken Sugiura of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about what he felt his immediate role with the team would be:

"They've got their team chemistry," Poole said. "I'm just trying to come in and help them win some games."

The No. 37 prospect of the Class of 2013 on both Scout and Rivals, Poole can make an impact for the Yellow Jackets but isn't expected to earn plenty of minutes early in his collegiate career. Senior point guard Mfon Udofia has averaged more than 30 minutes per game in 2012 with 10.0 points and 3.3 assists.

Georgia Tech is off to a 6-2 start to the 2012-13 season, but is in the middle of a week off of play before returning to the court on Dec. 17 for a home game against winless Alabama State.
