With the bowl game complete and Georgia Tech’s 2016 football season officially concluded, redshirt freshman DL Trent Sellers announced on Wednesday that he’ll be moving on from the Flats.
Sellers was originally a member of the 2015 recruiting class out of Sandy Creek High School, committing relatively early in the cycle. He was unranked as a recruit going into his senior year of high school, but ended up with a three-star ranking by most services. After redshirting as a true freshman in 2015, Sellers hardly saw the field in 2016 — his only in-game action came against Vanderbilt, and he failed to record any stats. A look at the future of Georgia Tech’s defensive line (particularly the SDE and DT spots) show a lack of opportunity for Sellers to have seen significantly more playing time over the next couple of years, so his decision to leave is understandable.
Sellers is the fifth Georgia Tech player to announce his transfer since the end of the regular season, joining B-back Marcus Marshall, defensive back Dorian Walker, linebacker Emanuel Bridges and wide receiver Christian Philpott.
