NFL sources speaking with TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline are unaware of Georgia Tech DT Jabari Hunt-Day's future plans.

Hunt quit the Georgia Tech football team in November after a suspension and his whereabouts are currently a mystery to the NFL, or at least the segment of it within earshot of Pauline. "People I spoke with are unsure about his plans or if he’ll workout for NFL teams," he wrote. Hunt was expected to break out this fall but managed only 13 tackles and one TFL in eight games before his season came to a premature end.

Georgia Tech RB Patrick Skov accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

A graduate transfer from Stanford, Skov gained momentum during August and eventually earned the nod as the starting B-back. Alas, the 6-foot-1, 235-pound Yellow Jacket just couldn't find any level of consistent production over the course of the 2015 campaign. He finished out with 377 rushing yards (4.1 YPC) and six touchdowns on 93 carries. Skov received just 18 carries after October 3.

Georgia Tech senior CB D.J. White has accepted his invitation to play in the 2016 East West Shrine Game.

The 5-foot-11, 188-pound White ranked sixth on the Yellow Jackets with 41 tackles, recording two interceptions, while leading the team with eight pass break-ups in 2015. Prior to the season, TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline stamped White as a preseason 4th-to-5th round prospect. CBS Sports currently ranks White their No. 15 cornerback, heading into the draft season.
Jan 7 - 2:04 PM

Georgia Tech redshirt senior S Jamal Golden will play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Golden started all 12 games at strong safety this year and led the squad's defensive backs with 64 tackles. He also returned eight kicks for 359 yards and 16 punts for 161 yards. The 6-foot, 193-pound Golden had four interceptions and three forced fumbles last year and was named to the All-ACC Third Team. Because of his special team prowess, he should make a roster.

Georgia Tech HC Paul Johnson said that he's uncertain as to the status of junior QB Justin Thomas (upper-body) in advance of Saturday's contest with Georgia.

Thomas suffered the upper-body injury on Tech's first offensive possession against Miami on Saturday. Said HC Johnson, "I’m hopeful that he’s going to play, but I couldn’t sit here right now and tell you that I know he’s going to play for sure or that I know he’s not going to play for sure." The Yellow Jackets will release an injury report on Thursday, which should shed more light on the situation. If he can't go, redshirt freshman QB Matthew Jordan will take the reins of GT's offensive attack.

Georgia Tech junior QB Justin Thomas' status for the Georgia game is unresolved after he suffered an upper-body injury against Miami.

Thomas was knocked out of the Miami game on the opening possession. Matthew Jordan, who took over for Thomas, showed some flashes but made a bevy of mistakes as the offense dissented into sloppiness. "I thought he did OK," coach Paul Johnson said. "Did some good things. But you’ve got to value the ball. He made some critical mistakes." Johnson believes Thomas hit his head on the ground, though he added that his star didn’t suffer a concussion. Stay tuned.

Georgia Tech junior QB Justin Thomas is questionable to return to Saturday's game against Miami with an undisclosed injury.

Thomas helped Georgia Tech to score, but the left for the locker room afterwards. The injury could be to Thomas' right arm, but that is only speculation at this point. Georgia Tech needs to win today to save hope of bowl eligibility.

Georgia Tech senior CB D.J. White had two pass breakups in Thursday's loss to Virginia Tech and impressed evaluators with the performance.

The 5-foot-11, 188-pounde, who was an honorable mention All-ACC pick last year, is ranked as the No. 7 senior cornerback by CBS. "White has light feet, good balance and the fluid hips to change directions easily, showing off the natural coverage skills scouts covet," Rob Rang wrote. "He showed impressive hand-eye coordination and mental toughness Thursday night, as well, snaking his arm through those of Virginia Tech's would-be pass-catchers to knock passes away and responding to the varying challenges presented by the crafty [Cam] Phillips, speedy [Isaiah] Ford and massive [Bucky] Hodges."

Georgia Tech junior WR Micheal Summers has left the team.

According to HC Paul Johnson, Summers said that he "didn't want to play anymore." The 6-foot-1, 196-pound junior finishes his Yellow Jackets career having caught 29 passes for 434 yards and two touchdowns. Both touchdowns were scored during the 2015 campaign. He should be on track to graduate in the spring, which means that if he happens to have a change of heart, he would be eligible to play immediately after any possible transfer.

Given a potential shortage of 6-6 bowl-eligible teams, it's possible that Georgia Tech could make a bowl game even if they finish the season 5-7.

Georgia Tech currently sits at 3-6. If they win out their last three games (vs Virginia Tech, @ Miami (FL), vs Georgia), they'll crack a bowl. Should they drop one of those three, though, they still might have a shot at a very, very low-tier bowl game. As is, the Football Bowl Association is currently project 79 teams to finish 6-6 or better, which means one open slot, which means a chance for Georgia Tech. Several other teams, including Rutgers (3-6), Nebraska (4-6) and Vanderbilt (3-6) are in similar spots. These are all just predictions subject to change as we hit the final three weeks of regular season play. For his part, Yellow Jackets HC Paul Johnson indicated that the thought of finishing 5-7 with a bowl game earned hasn't entered his mind.

Georgia Tech senior DL Adam Gotsis will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

He suffered the injury on the first play against Virginia last week. "He really was playing at a high level, and being the leader of the defense and all that," coach Paul Johnson said on Wednesday. "I'm more disappointed for him than anything, but he's got a great attitude. He's going to bounce back. He's ready to get rehab going and get better." NFL Media analyst Chad Reuter projected Gotsis in the preseason as a top-150 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, writing that Gotsis "possesses the quickness and motor to succeed as an NFL five-technique." Said Johnson: "He'll get his opportunity to play (in the NFL). It's just going to be a little later than it probably would have been."

Georgia Tech junior QB Justin Thomas completed 4-of-10 passes for 67 yards and two interceptions while rushing for 88 yards and a score on 13 carries in Saturday's 22-16 win over Florida State.

Never a good sign when the quarterback completes just two more passes than he has passes intercepted, as was the case with Thomas against Florida State on Saturday. The 5-foot-11, 189-pound junior entered the 2015 campaign talking about improved passing, but he's completed more than 42.9% of his passes in just three games (of eight played). On the more positive side of the ledger, Saturday's win was actually the first time Thomas hasn't connected on a touchdown pass this season.

Georgia Tech redshirt senior RB Broderick Snoddy (hand) was ruled out for Saturday’s Florida State game.

Snoddy sustained the injury against Duke and has already missed three games because of it. If you're looking for a reason that Georgia Tech's offense has fallen off a cliff, Snoddy's absence is a good place to start. He was the team's best big-play runner.

Georgia Tech graduate transfer RB Patrick Skov (undisclosed) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game versus Florida State.

As always, college teams are under no obligation to disclose injury information. Jackets HC Paul Johnson has exercised his right to remain tight-lipped on Skov's status. Frankly, we don't blame him with the Seminoles on deck. Skov lost his starting job to freshman Marcus Marshall last week but remains very much apart of the rotation.

Georgia Tech junior QB Justin Thomas went 6-of-15 for 106 yards, one touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 31-28 loss to Pittsburgh.

He chipped in 95 yards rushing. Georgia Tech is the nation's most disappointing team. By extension, Thomas may be its most disappointing player. He's still dangerous on the option, but the Yellow Jackets' talent level was overrated coming into the season and a player of Thomas' talent needed to take his game to another level to compensate. He hasn't done so and remains a running back throwing passes when asked to do so.
