April 3, 2006

BLACKSBURG, Va. - Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer announced Monday afternoon that quarterback Ike Whitaker has been reinstated to the football team.

Whitaker, a redshirt freshman from Germantown, Md., was suspended from the team on Mar. 2 for a violation of team policy. He rejoined the squad for Monday's spring practice session.

"We asked Ike to get some things done and he has made progress in that regard, " Bearmer said, "With that in mind, he has been reinstated to the team. I feel comfortable that Ike will work hard to be a successful part of this football program."

Tech's spring practice concludes on Apr. 15 with the annual Spring Game at Lane Stadium/Worsham Field, beginning at 2 p.m.
