Presbyterian Vs. Georgia Tech: Yellow Jackets Shuffle Wide Receivers

The Georgia Tech offense struggled out of the gate against Virginia Tech on Monday, and Yellow Jackets head coach Paul Johnson is going to mix things up. Georgia Tech averaged just 3.7 yards per play against the Hokies after putting up 6.8 in 2011.

The wide receiver position will see some change on Saturday, according to

Johnson said on his radio show on 790 the Zone Wednesday night that freshman wide receiver Anthony Autry would get playing time Saturday and indicated that wide receiver Darren Waller would probably start. He also said that an appeal for wide receiver Chris Jackson, who was held out of Monday’s game because of an academic matter concerning his credit hours, was denied and that he’ll miss four games.

Autry and Waller did not have any catches or rushes in the season-opening loss. The Yellow Jackets will face Presbyterian on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET.
