Penn State Releases Official Statement Regarding Nick Suriano

125 Finals - Nick Suriano, Penn State vs Noah Gonser, Eastern Michigan
Earlier today, Nick Suriano was removed from the Penn State roster amid reports he wanted to transfer to Rutgers.

PSU sent the following statement to FloWrestling in regard to Suriano's status with the team:

"Nick Suriano recently requested a release so that he could transfer to Rutgers. We granted this release. Subject to Big Ten policy, any intra-conference transfer is required to sit for one year before they are again eligible to participate. Nick is open to transfer to Rutgers and will be subject to that school's policies (conference or otherwise) on transfer and eligibility status. We support and work within the Big Ten policy." 

The gist of this statement is a response to an article on NJ.com that made it sound as though it was Penn State that was prohibiting Suriano from transferring and competing right away for Rutgers. Essentially, it is Big Ten policy that is preventing Suriano from competing for the Scarlet Knights in the 2017-18 season.

Which College "Won" Ironman?

132lbs Third place: Jordan Decatur, CVCA vs Dylan D'Emilio, Genoa

One of my favorite things to do after big tournaments like the Walsh Ironman is to look at results through the lens of college recruiting. While a number of Ironman placers have yet to make their college decision, many have committed already and a good deal have signed their National Letters of Intent.
