Eric Reed Jr. and Wing Green no longer are on the Georgia Tech active roster. Also, 2023 signee Bryce Dopson asked for and was granted a release from his letter of intent “to allow him to explore other opportunities,” according to a person familiar with the situation.

Reed, from Shreveport, Louisiana, transferred in May 2022 to Tech after two seasons at Auburn, where he played in only two games. The 6-foot, 196-pound cornerback did not appear in a game for the Yellow Jackets during the 2022 season.

At Calvary Baptist Academy in Louisiana, Reed was considered a four-star prospect and a top-20 cornerback nationally.

Green is a 6-foot-7, 300-pound offensive lineman from Leesburg and Lee County High School. He had not appeared in a game for the Jackets during his three seasons in Atlanta after arriving as a former three-star prospect out of high school.

Green was one of seven Tech offensive lineman to sign a name, image and likeness deal with Hooters in August.

Dopson, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound wide receiver from Brookwood High School in Snellville, signed with Tech in December. Rated as a three-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite, Dopson caught 43 passes for 875 yards and 12 touchdowns during his final two seasons for the Broncos.
