Biggest shoes to fill: Georgia Tech
By ESPN.com staff
The series continues today with Georgia Tech. The Jackets don't throw it often, but when they do, they need to be more efficient. Can that improve without ...
OUT: WR Stephen Hill. He caught 28 passes for 820 yards in 2011, and decided to leave school early for the NFL draft. Hill, who caught five touchdown passes including one against Utah in the Hyundai Sun Bowl, led all FBS players in yards per reception (29.3, also the highest in school history) and had three 100-yard receiving games. He finished his three-year career with 1,248 receiving yards, which ranks 16th in Georgia Tech history. For his career, Hill averaged 25.47 yards per reception, which would have easily broken the school record, but he fell one reception short of qualifying for the record book (minimum 50 receptions).
IN: Sophomores Darren Waller and Jeff Greene. No really, we’re talking biggest shoes, here. Waller’s size 17 is the largest on the team. He was Hill’s backup last year, but both he and Greene played in 12 games last year as true freshmen, some on special teams. Greene was Tyler Melton’s backup. Both Waller and Greene are still looking for their first career receptions.
