Georgia Tech’s new “Above the Line” chart for its Saturday game against Temple includes a replenished offensive line (minus one significant member) and a possible two-way player.
Guard Mikey Minihan, who started the first two games of the season, is back on the chart after suffering a leg injury against South Florida and missing Tech’s game against The Citadel. Joining him are offensive linemen Scott Morgan and Austin Smith, Morgan back after not being on the chart for The Citadel and Smith for the first time this season.
Missing from the chart is offensive tackle Jahaziel Lee, who broke his left fibula against The Citadel and is out for the season.
Defensive lineman Antwan Owens has moved from defensive tackle to defensive end. He had been at tackle the two previous games.
Perhaps the most interesting change is the addition of cornerback Jordan Huff at wide receiver. Huff continues to be listed among the available cornerbacks. Should Huff, a freshman who has played two games thus far, get in the game at both wide receiver and cornerback, he would join Lee in playing offense and defense for the Jackets in the same game this season. Coach Geoff Collins has made a point of using players at multiple positions to take advantage of the roster and provide more opportunities for players to get on the field.
Another change at wide receiver is freshman Kalani Norris not appearing on the list after being on it for the first three games.
