Kent State redshirt sophomore and former Copley High student, Sam Wheeler has been suspended indefinitely for posting anti-gay comments on Twitter.
A photo on the gay website, Outrage, captured Wheeler's tweets, which included - "I can't even watch Sports Center today cause all they are talking about is Marcus Smart or that (gay slur) from Mizzou…" The photo showed Wheeler's last tweet, "O geez, I got all these (slur) boys mad at me now."
The tweets are in reference to Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, who came out on Sunday on ESPN's Outside the Lines.
Wheeler's Twitter account was later shut down.
According to KSU's wrestling coach, Jim Andrassy, Wheeler will be suspended indefinitely until the school determines the best course of action.
