Georgia Tech defensive tackle Jimmie Kitchen has been indefinitely suspended from the team and is likely to transfer. In the meantime, he will not be permitted to take part in team activities.

Kitchen has played 11 games in his first two seasons in a backup role for the Yellow Jackets. The suspension is not believed to be due to a legal offense or failed drug test. He remains in school.

Kitchen’s high school coach at Lithonia, Marcus Jelks, said that Kitchen is most likely going to transfer. Jelks surmised that the transfer would occur before the fall semester begins and would be to an FCS school, as a transfer to an FBS school would require him to sit out a year and leave him with only one season of eligibility.
