    Rumor

    Saw on another board that DL Justin Akins is transferring because of academics. There is also a rumor that Commissiong was considering transferring as well but for now he was quoted as saying he isn't transferring. Can't really afford to lose defensive linemen right now.

    He's a defensive end that was a pretty highly recruited guy in the class of 2013. He picked us over Clemson, Louisville, Nebraska, Ole Miss among others. Apparently he got a lot bigger and stronger and is now 295 lbs and was moved to DT. I think you should care because we have sucked so bad on the defensive line since 2008 and this is another guy that was extremely talented on the DL that will not pan out for us. Kind of sucks.

    This is a biggie in my mind.....Tech has been so thin and so small for so long that no matter who the DC is or was we couldnt stop the rush or rush the passer.This guy had the talent and would have helped. Of course if he cant pass then its time to move on..always take as many DL as you can since you never know how much you will need them..

    OK thanks. Kind of sucks but hell, if he can't hack it academically, he was going to be a liability at some point. Better to clear him out now and find someone who can cut it in the classroom.

    Watched this kid in the Spring game 2013. Had great size and potential especially with a year redshirt under his belt. Really hated seeing this one go...had big hopes. I am really beginning to sense some dissension. I hope I'm wrong but we are losing too many in this fashion. I have been trying to defend PJ but these kind of events make me pause.

    Wonder if he was an exception? Is there any way to know how many exceptions we offer every year? Custis has to be an exception, guy didn't even pass the HS graduation test.
