Virginia Tech quarterback Josh Jackson’s academic issue has been resolved and remains on the team, multiple media outlets reported on Tuesday.

Jackson’s status was in question because of an unspecified academic eligibility issue that surfaced earlier this month. Virginia Tech has cleared Jackson following an investigation, The Roanoke Times and other outlets reported.

“(There’s) no indication he’ll face any type of suspension, meaning he most likely will be the starter for the Hokies’ opener at Florida State on Labor Day night,” Andy Bitter of the Roanoke Times wrote.

Jackson recorded 2,991 passing yards and 20 touchdowns along with 324 rushing yards and six scores in 13 games as a redshirt freshman last season for the Hokies (9-4).

Redshirt freshman Hendon Hooker or redshirt junior Ryan Willis likely would have been named the starter had Jackson been ruled ineligible for the upcoming season.
