Zahid Valencia, the top ranked wrestler at 184 pounds and two-time NCAA champion, has been suspended indefinitely by Arizona State due to a failed drug test. Valencia tested positive for a recreational drug in January at the Matteo Pellicone tournament in Italy. There has been no indication how long Valencia's suspension will be. 

The Pac 12 Wrestling Championships are March 7, and if Valencia does not participate, then he will be unable to wrestle at the NCAA Tournament.
