Georgia Tech just received a devastating blow to their program, as All-ACC guard Kaela Davis has decided to leave the program and transfer.

Here is some of the release:

Georgia Tech women's basketball head coach MaChelle Joseph announced Tuesday that Kaela Davis and Georgia Tech have mutually agreed to part ways.

"We wish Kaela and her family the very best and we thank her for her two years in our program," head coach MaChelle Joseph said.

Davis, the highest-rated recruit to ever commit to the Yellow Jackets, was first-team All-ACC this past season and the team's leading scorer at 19.2 points. She spoke about her decision, and how tough it was, to leave Georgia Tech on her Instagram account:

I guess maybe it's because I moved around so much as kid because of my Dad's career...but change doesn't scare me or bother me. BUT leaving Machelle Joseph and Georgia Tech was one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life. I love and respect that lady and her abilities as a Coach more then I can find the words to express. My belief in her is what made me choose Tech. But I'm a competitor at my core...it's who I am..and at every level of basketball career thus far...that competitiveness has allowed me to not only compete at the highest level..but WIN at the highest level. I want to compete for a National Championship. I love you Jo Jo
