Georgia Tech Vs. Virginia Tech: Jackets' Reserve Defensive Backs May Need To Step Up

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are missing two starters in the secondary, which has made room for others to step up. Freshman D.J. White and sophomore Coray Carlson are two reserves who could end up having an impact on Monday night's game against Virginia Tech.

"I think D.J. is a really good athlete," Johnson said. "He's a competitor, and he wants to be good. Carlson is probably the next guy in at defensive back, but it all depends on the situations. We're preparing D.J. to play, and we'll see where we are. If he can help us win, we'll play him."
