Freshman guard Malik Mueller has been ruled out for the upcoming season. Why he is being ruled ineligible has not been identified, and head coach James Johnson could not go into detail. Muller was looking to make an impact this season, and was expected to compete for playing time.
The 6’3′ guard will have to sit out this season, but will look to make a difference in the future. Mueller will still be on a scholarship and be able to practice with the Hokies. Also, he will still have four years of eligibility left as well. Hopefully things get straightened out for the young man and we are able to see him on the court next season for Virginia Tech.
