Georgia Tech Football: DE Anthony Williams Dismissed

Danny Karnik/Georgia Tech Athletics

The rising fifth-year senior never saw much playing time to begin with.

According to reports from JacketsOnline.com, rising fifth-year senior DE Anthony Williams has been dismissed from Georgia Tech's football team. Williams was a 4-star recruit who never had success in Al Groh's 3-4 defense, and even since switching back to a 4-3 system has seen limited playing time. However, reports would suggest that Williams was not playing as a result of low work ethic, ending in him sharing a backup spot this year with Rod Chungong.

The reason for Williams' dismissal has not been made public and likely will not, but speculations from those close to the program have been along the same lines of "attitude problems" that kept him off the field for much of his Tech career, though there may be more to the story. Williams will likely finish school this semester and then look to transfer somewhere that he can play his final year of eligibility this fall.

His departure leaves the Jackets with an extra scholarship to be spent on recruiting in the next month, where the Yellow Jackets will likely sign 23-24 players. Redshirt sophomore Roderick Chungong and redshirt freshman Kevin Robbins, Jr are the early major candidates to see time and start at Strongside Defensive End. You can see how the departure of Williams, Vad Lee, and others will potentially impact the fall depth chart here.

How much impact will Williams' absence have on the Georgia Tech defense in 2014? Will he be missed?
