Gavin Teasdale Departs From Penn State Wrestling
Gavin Teasdale is once again leaving the Penn State wrestling program, but will not be returning this time around.
Head coach Cael Sanderson announced that the freshman at 125 pounds is being removed from the team’s roster.
“Don’t expect to see Gavin. We obviously wish him well and expect him to transfer from here,” Sanderson said.
The four-time Pennsylvania high school state champion announced in November that he would step away from the program through the end of the semester. He returned to Penn State in time for the Southern Scuffle, and reportedly was going to burn his redshirt by wrestling attached to the team, but did not during that competition.
Penn State hasn’t had much success at 125 since current Rutgers star Nick Suriano left the team following his freshman campaign in 2017. Devin Schnupp –who is 6-23 in the past two seasons — has been the primary starter in the weight class, while freshman Brody Teske — a four-time Iowa high school state champion — waits in the wings.

Blazer testified that he was contacted by a Penn State assistant in 2009 who was the father of one of Blazer’s NFL clients. The assistant asked Blazer to pay a player $10,000 so that he would not enter the NFL Draft. Blazer complied, handing a $10,000 check to the father of that player, but the player ended up in the 2009 NFL Draft and was selected No. 11 overall.
