Virginia Tech senior forward Ty Outlaw has been charge with misdemeanor marijuana possession according to a report by Norm Wood of the Newport News Daily Press.
The offense date on the Virginia Courts Case Information website is listed as last Thursday, the day before Virginia Tech beat Saint Louis in their opening game of the NCAA Tournament. Outlaw played in that game, as well as Sunday’s win over Liberty in which he finished with 10 points and 11 rebounds.
Outlaw is averaging 8.7 points per game, and he’s shooting 45.6% from three-point range this season. He also pulls down 5.4 rebounds per game.
According to Wood’s article, athletes who are charged with a misdemeanor are subject to having their situation reviewed by athletic director Whit Babcock, and they are not automatically suspended. The Virginia Tech Athletic Department has not issued a statement as of the time of this writing. Outlaw’s disposition is set for April 11.
