BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Virginia Tech says Tyrece Radford has been indefinitely suspended from all team activities.

Radford was arrested early Sunday morning for DUI and a concealed weapon carry charge in Blacksburg, according to the Montogomery County Sheriff's Office.

Both charges are class one misdemeanors and Radford was released on bond.

In a release Monday school official said Radford failed to uphold “the high standards Virginia Tech has for its students and athletes.”

The release also stated there would be no further comment until the matter has been resolved.

Radford is a redshirt sophomore and has started all 14 games so far for the No. 20 Hokies.

The 6-foot-2 guard from Baton Rouge, Louisiana is second on the team in scoring and rebounding.

He was named ACC co-player of the week last week.
