Notre Dame defenseman Russo ruled academically ineligible

Notre Dame junior defenseman Robbie Russo has been ruled academically ineligible by the university, according to a report in the South Bend Tribune.

Russo did not play this past weekend against Lake Superior State and Notre Dame coach Jeff Jackson isn’t sure when Russo will return.

“He’s trying to do some things to get a grade changed,” Jackson said to the paper. 

Russo tallied four goals among 15 points in 21 games this year for the Fighting Irish.
