Redshirt sophomore Jaylen Bradshaw is no longer a part of the Virginia Tech football team, according to Andy Bitter of the Roanoke Times.

Bradshaw was one of the most talked about offensive players in spring practice last year and many expected him to contribute last season. However, things didn’t quite work out for Bradshaw and he never received much of an opportunity.

Coming out of Oscar Smith High School in Chesapeake, Bradshaw was a 3-star receiver and redshirted in 2015. As a senior in high school, Bradshaw caught 18 touchdown passes.

The opportunity was there for Bradshaw this spring, with Isaiah Ford and Bucky Hodges both gone. But, Bradshaw wasn’t even enrolled this semester and it looks like his Virginia Tech career will end before it ever really started.

With Bradshaw no longer on the team, players like Henri Murphy, Eric Kumah and Phil Patterson have even bigger opportunities in front of them. Caleb Farley, currently listed as a cornerback, could tempt coaches to use him as a receiver.
