BLACKSBURG, Va. — Senior cornerback Antone Exum has been cleared to return to the lineup for Virginia Tech.
Exum had surgery in January after tearing his ACL, lateral and medial meniscus and suffering a bone fracture in his right knee playing pickup basketball.
He had targeted the Hokies’ game against North Carolina for his return, and the teams meet Saturday at Lane Stadium.
Hokies trainer Mike Goforth says Exum’s playing time will be determined by how the knee responds to practice.
Freshmen Brandon Facyson and Kendall Fuller have filled in admirably for Exum in his absence.
