Basketball future of Virginia Tech’s Tyrece Radford ‘up in the air’ | Virginia Tech


Radford is still in the transfer portal, a Tech spokesman confirmed Monday.

Radford, who was a Tech standout the past two seasons, declined to answer questions outside the courtroom Monday.

He still lists himself as a “Virginia Tech guard” in his Twitter bio.

Radford is included on the Hokies’ roster for the upcoming season on the Tech athletic department’s website, although he is the only player listed without an accompanying head shot. But a Tech spokesman said recently that Radford’s inclusion on the roster “does not signify anything for now” and that he was simply treating Radford as a current Tech student-athlete until he is told otherwise.

Radford was found guilty Feb. 3 in Montgomery County General District Court of first-offense driving under the influence. Radford and Turk reached a plea agreement on the DUI charge with the Montgomery County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office. Under the plea agreement, Radford pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence with the stipulation that he be found guilty.

Judge Randal Duncan sentenced Radford to a 60-day suspended jail sentence and a $1,000 fine, with $750 of that suspended. Radford was placed on probation for 12 months.

Radford, who has a Louisiana driver’s license, also had his driving privileges in Virginia revoked for 12 months — unless he got a Virginia driver’s license, in which case his license was to be restricted and he must have the ignition interlock device in his car.
