Among other changes, coaches elevated defensive tackle Ja’Quon Griffin into the “ATL” group. He did not play in the South Florida game, but can now add depth with Lee not available.
There were three other changes to the offensive line group – Connor Hansen is on the list for the first time this season, Chet Lagod is back on the list after being off last week and Scott Morgan is off.
At nickel/dime, freshman Kenan Johnson, who played a significant number of snaps against South Florida, is off the list.
Tech also announced that running back Nathan Cottrell will wear No. 90 in honor of late team member Brandon Adams. The team is rotating the honor on a game-by-game basis.
The game captains for Saturday’s game also were announced: wide receiver Omahri Jarrett, running back Jerry Howard, safety Christian Campbell and Lee.
