UK freshman suspended for Louisville game

UK coach Rich Brooks announced today that freshman linebacker Ridge Wilson has been suspended for the Louisville game this Saturday in Commonwealth Stadium.

"I will evaluate the situation moving forward," Brooks told the assembled media, following Tuesday morning's practice.

SportsFirst has learned that an arrest warrant has been issued for Wilson, out of Louisville Central High School. Wilson is wanted on an assault charge after police received a complaint against the player on Monday night.

UK police received a complaint that Wilson allegedly punched a woman after an argument on campus.

Wilson could be arrested on charges of 4th degree assault.

Wilson was a first-team All-State selection last season after leading Central to back-to-back 3A titles.
