Ed Ruth Suspended For Wrestling’s Opening Weekend

Senior Penn State wrestler Ed Ruth, a two-time national champion and three-time All-American, has been suspended for the team’s opening weekend matches against Rider and Lehigh. During his Wednesday media availability, head coach Cael Sanderson brought up the suspension unprompted.

“Real quick, one thing: Ed Ruth broke team rules yesterday,” Sanderson said. “He will not be wrestling this weekend. I’m not going to comment on that really any more than that, but just so you know. We’re going to figure out what we’re going to do [going forward], but definitely this weekend.”

Ruth was pulled from the NWCA Classic by Sanderson two weeks ago for undisclosed reasons, but it would seem that this is not related as Sanderson said this incident occurred yesterday. Ruth has dealt with legal issues in the past. He was arrested in 2011 for assaulting a police officer after an incident outside of a Washington D.C. bar.

There are plenty of rumors swirling around right now, but as more information about the specific violation and the length of the suspension comes out, we will keep you updated.
