Georgia Tech wide receiver Mikell Lands-Davis has left the team after two seasons. Lands-Davis’ decision was first reported by Rivals Tuesday. He is planning to stay at Tech and graduate.
Lands-Davis’ decision comes as something of a surprise. Initially a B-back, he moved to A-back and then wide receiver in his freshman season in 2015 and was a part of the rotation last season. Lands-Davis, from Alexander High in Douglas County, particularly showed a willingness to throw blocks in the running game. In 2016, he played in 11 games and caught two passes for 14 yards.
He is the ninth scholarship player to leave the team since the end of the regular season and among the more prominent of the group in terms of playing time. The other eight elected to transfer. Of the nine, seven were members of the 2015 signing class.
