Georgia Tech wide receiver Micheal Summers has left the team, head coach Paul Johnson said Monday.

“Just said he didn’t want to play anymore,” Johnson said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Ken Sugiura.

A redshirt junior, Summers is second on the Yellow Jackets in receptions (12), and third in receiving yards (178) and touchdown receptions (two). He has started and played in seven of nine games this season.

Johnson said that Summers is on track to graduate in May, meaning that Summers could possibly transfer elsewhere and play immediately as a graduate transfer in his fifth year.

Summers, who missed two games this season with a clavicle injury, finishes his Georgia Tech career with 29 catches for 434 yards.

Freshman Brad Stewart will now start in Summers’ place, alongside Ricky Jeune, who is the team’s leading receiver with 20 catches for 422 yards and three touchdowns.
