According to Georgia Tech's sports information department, true center Brad Sheehan will not be joining the Yellow Jackets this fall when camp opens for the 2010-11 season. The Albany, N.Y. native has not returned for classes this fall and has no intentions of resuming his college career.
A three-year letterwinner, Sheehan appeared mostly in backup roles for Georgia Tech, averaging just 1.6 points throughout his career. Although he graduated on the Dean's List with a management degree this spring, he had one year of eligibility remaining.
He played in six ACC games last season in addition to Georgia Tech's second-round appearance against Ohio State in the NCAA tournament. The 7-footer came in mostly when forwards Gani Lawal and Derrick Favors were in foul trouble.
As of Tuesday, he was officially removed from the roster on the school's Web site.
The Yellow Jackets have two true centers remaining on their roster in Panama City, Fla. native Nate Hicks, and Logansville's Daniel Miller. Both stand greater than 6-foot-11. Miller redshirted last year, but has drawn great praise from head coach Paul Hewitt.
