On a note connecting this somewhat to Lehigh, I've read two different articles that tie Suriano situation to McKenna situation.

Both articles seem to imply that Suriano coming or going from Penn State will determine where McKenna ends up, if Suriano stays at Penn State nothing changes and he chooses between his three favorites on an even level (OSU,PSU,Lehigh), but if Suriano were to transfer to Rutgers then that opens up money for Penn State to really go after him (thus upgrading from their current projected 141 starter Cortez) and more importantly makes Ohio State want him more to have a legitimate shot to unseat Penn State this year (not really sure that's possible).

Rumors sure, but made interesting reading and to some degree made sense.

Spladle, do you have a link to those two articles, or if not, did they have a ring of legitimacy to them?
When rumors hang around too long one begins to wonder where there's smoke is there fire?
Also, it seems that McKenna staying at Stanford is not being mentioned much anymore.

I heard it first during Flowrestling FRL yesterday:

http://www.flowrestling.org/video/12242 ... Wi8sYTyuUk

Then google searching with those two names connected came up on a different article, can't remember the source. As I said rumors, nothing more, but interesting and like I said to some degree makes sense.

Suriano situation is intriguing because I can't see him leaving PSU without them giving him his outright release, if they didn't he would have to forfeit a year of his eligibility and with already having lost the end of last year due to injury that is a steep price to pay for a wrestler of his caliber. Not sure PSU would want to give him his outright release because not sure what they have in the way of a backup 125 this year.

If he transfers to Rutgers, the Big Ten will mandate a one year athletic ban.

He does have a redshirt available and will have 3 years of eligibility remaining.

Your understanding of Big Ten transfer rules is flawed. A Redshirt and/or Release doesn't help. He will lose a year of eligibility unless he can get a special circumstance exemption.

I think that's a perfect reason why recruits should think twice before signing on with a Big 10 team. Their options become severely limited if things just don't work out. They would be far better off with a very competitive school with good academics and a competitive schedule :-).
If a recruit in the Big 10 gets homesick eg , it would benefit him to look for a non-Big 10 institution that is much closer to home while having everything he needs. There must be one around like that.
If a wrestler is looking to transfer and let's say 2 of his options are in the Big 10 eg Penn State and Ohio State, he would be wise to pick a third option, a high caliber institution with good work out partners in case that too doesn't work out as planned.
Just saying.

Minnesota had a stronger case against the Cooperman family when he decided to leave after one semester during his r/s year. UM complained about the cost of losing him but the family hired a lawyer and got his release. Am sure it helped to leave the B1G

The ACC apparently has the same transfer restrictions as the Big 10.
Micky Phillippi, a 3 X PIAA state champion is transferring from Virginia to Pitt (another apparent case of home sickness) and will forego a year of eligibility.

Seems that there is a trail being blazed from Charlottesville to Pittsburgh. First coach Gavin, then assistant coach Leen, now wrestler Phillippi.

You kidding? On wrestling fora that's as close to an unimpeachable source as we ever get.
