Virginia Tech's men's basketball program has reportedly received some big news ahead of Friday night's game against Duke in the Sweet 16.

The Hokies will reportedly have senior Ty Outlaw on the floor against the Blue Devils in Washington, D.C. on Friday night.

Outlaw, 23, was reportedly charged with possession of marijuana on March 21, the day after the Hokies arrived in San Jose, California, for the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

The Hokies' senior has reportedly passed a drug test and will play against Duke on Friday night.

David Teel first reported the news.

Outlaw is a starter for Virginia Tech, averaging nearly 30 minutes a contest.

The 6-foot-6 guard is averaging 8.7 points and 5.4 rebounds a game for the Hokies during the 2018-19 season.

Virginia Tech and Duke are set to tip off at 9:39 p.m. E.T. on Friday.

The game will be on CBS.
