Of course, when it comes to run-heavy Georgia Tech, “leading receiver” is a weighted term but still.
Regardless, the Yellow Jackets announced Friday that wide receiver Darren Waller has been suspended for the first two games of the 2014 season. Thus, Waller will miss the Aug. 30 opener against FCS-level Wofford at home and the Sept.6 game against Tulane in New Orleans.
The stated reason for the senior’s punitive measures was the standard “unspecified violation of team rules.”
Waller is tops among all returning Tech receivers with 367 yards last season, while his 17 receptions are second to DeAndre Smelter‘s 21 from a year ago. Among players with more than two receptions, Waller’s 21.6 yards per catch average led the team.
