Clarke is one of the most important players on the team because of his athleticism, versatility and rebounding. He averaged 8.2 points and 6.3 rebounds per game last season as a junior despite the fact that he was coming off a torn ACL. As a sophomore, he averaged 11.4 points and 7.3 rebounds.
No other comment was made by the athletic department. Clarke is no longer listed on Virginia Tech’s online roster.
With Clarke’s suspension, the Hokies are now down to just 10 scholarship players. Khadim Sy and Tyrie Jackson also left the program in the offseason.
