Beckett has already been removed from the online roster.
Beckett, a sophomore from Chesapeake, Va., played a big role on Tech’s special teams units in 2016 and so far in 2017. Beckett was elevated to the No. 2 mike linebacker role officially in the spring, and served in that role behind Andrew Motuapuaka this season. Beckett recorded six total tackles in 2016 in limited playing time, but had not recorded a tackle officially in 2017.
