Georgia Tech Football: Anthony Autry, Darius Commissiong, Travin Henry Dismissed, Lynn Griffin Suspended

Very, very bad news for Georgia Tech fans came out Tuesday afternoon.

Three Georgia Tech football players were dismissed from the program and another was suspended on Tuesday due to "violations of the Athletic Association's student-athlete code of conduct". Players dismissed were WR Anthony Autry, DL Darius Commissiong, and DE Travin Henry, while DB Lynn Griffin was suspended for the Wofford and Tulane games that start the 2014 season.

It is worth noting that this is not the first time that any of the dismissed players have seen discipline, unfortunately. Autry and Commissiong had previously been suspended for the season's first two games, and Henry was suspended for the 2013 Elon game nearly a year ago. This is the first time that Griffin has been disciplined at Georgia Tech.

Commissiong was a part of the small, 14-member 2013 recruiting class that was already dwindling. His departure is the fifth of that group, following the failure to qualify from Travis Custis and the transfers of Ty Griffin, Justin Akins, and his high school teammate Kevin Robbins.

Autry's departure is an interesting one, as his brother Myles is due to enroll at Tech this fall, although he has not yet officially started classes. Whether or not that situation is impacted is yet to be seen, but will be interesting to watch. Autry missed last season with a torn ACL, but was a promising receiver (and potential starter) after seeing action as a true freshman in 2012.
