ATLANTA–Georgia Tech defensive lineman Travis Parker will be ineligible to compete in the 2005 football season after failing to meet academic requirements.
Parker, from Hacienda Heights, Calif., would have been a fifth-year senior next fall, so he has no eligibility remaining.
Parker was a three-year starter for the Yellow Jackets, including last fall at defensive end after moving from defensive tackle. Last season, he had 34 tackles with six tackles for loss and two sacks. In 2003, he earned honorable mention all-Atlantic Coast Conference honors with 15 tackles for loss.
