COLUMBUS, Ohio –Redshirt senior Nathan Tomasello suffered a lower body injury and is expected to miss the start of the year with hopes to return to competition midseason.

“Nathan Tomasello is one of the most determined young men I’ve ever met,” Tom Ryan, head coach, said. “There is no doubt he will do everything he can to return to the mat as soon as possible.”

Ohio State begins the 2017-18 season traveling to New Jersey on Nov. 4 for the Princeton Open.

Tomasello is a three-time All-American and Big Ten champion, as well as, the 2015 NCAA Champion at 125 pounds.
