All-American Scott Barker has been kicked off the Missouri wrestling team for breaking team policies, coach Brian Smith confirmed Thursday. Smith would not comment further on the situation.
A national runner-up in 2003 at 18-2, Barker helped Missouri finish No. 16 in the nation. In March, he won the Big 12 Conference Championship at 184 pounds, defeating Oklahoma State's Jake Rosholt. Barker qualified for the NCAA Championships, but he lost to Rosholt in the national final.
He joined Tyron Woodley to give the Tigers two All-Americans last season. In three seasons at Missouri, Barker had a 59-18 record.
