Virginia Tech true freshman linebacker Isi Etute has been arrested and charged with second degree murder. Andy Bitter of The Athletic was the first to report the incident, and a search on the Virginia court case database shows that it is true.
Etute was arrested today, June 2, and the alleged crime took place on May 31. He has already been taken off Virginia Tech’s online roster. He has been suspended from the university and the football team, per this release from Virginia Tech.
Etute enrolled at Virginia Tech this spring and was working at the backer position. He played in high school at Cox in Virginia Beach, and he chose the Hokies over UVA, WVU, NC State, Vanderbilt and West Virginia.
