Virginia Tech freshman Jarell Eddie available to play vs. Wake Forest

By Mark Giannotto

Virginia Tech Coach Seth Greenberg confirmed Tuesday morning in a text message that freshman Jarell Eddie will be available to play against Wake Forest tonight. Eddie did not appear in the Hokies' loss to Virginia this past weekend after being charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana last Tuesday night.

Though he's averaging just 2.6 points and two rebounds per game this year, Eddie is one of just eight scholarship players remaining on Virginia Tech's active roster. Greenberg has yet to discuss the incident, but it appears as if Eddie served a one-game suspension in Saturday's loss to Virginia and will be available to play the rest of the season.

"Until this thing plays out, nothing else will be done," Athletic Director Jim Weaver told the Roanoke Times. "I would assume that he would play [tonight]; that's Seth's decision. ... We suspended him already for a game. We have taken appropriate action to this point in time."

According to a Blacksburg police spokesman, Eddie, a 6-foot-7 wing from Charlotte, was pulled over at around 11:35 p.m. on a traffic stop last Tuesday, about 90 minutes after Virginia Tech defeated Maryland at Cassell Coliseum. He was subsequently issued a summons to appear in Montgomery County (Va.) General District Court for possession of marijuana.

The spokesman confirmed Eddie was not taken into custody and is due to appear in court on April 21.
