Sammy Alvarez is not going to compete for Rutgers on the Massive Ten Championships, based on a tweet from Rutgers wrestling Friday morning. The late change was unrelated to COVID-19. Shane Metzler will substitute Alvarez within the lineup this weekend.
Alvarez was 3-0 this season and ranked No. 6 at 133 kilos. He was an NCAA qualifier final season as a freshman after posting a 26-10 file.
