Jimmie Kitchen - One More for 2011

Just when you thought the 2011 class was done, Georgia Tech added one more player - Jimmie Kitchen of Lithonia, GA.

The 6-3 260 pound defensive end had originally signed a Letter of Intent with Tennessee State out of high school. But, the NCAA Clearinghouse didn't accept one of his English courses. Kitchens has since retaken the course and cleared up the issue. But, Kitchen also never enrolled with Tennessee State and will now enroll at Georgia Tech in May. Since he never enrolled at TSU, Kitchen is not subject to any transfer rules and will be eligible immediately. Also, he will have the standard 5 years to play 4 that all other players have.
