Nathan Tomasello Reportedly Out Until January

Ohio State's Nathan Tomasello will be out until the beginning of January after suffering a lower-body injury, according to a report from Andy Vance at Eleven Warriors.

A redshirt senior, Tomasello was quoted by Vance as saying he is out:
Until the beginning of January, but I'll be back and ready to go then.
The 2015 NCAA champ and three-time All American likely suffered the injury at this weekend's U23 world team trials, possibly on the exchange below. [tweet url="https://twitter.com/wrestlingmuseum/status/917157645378781184" hide_media="0" hide_thread="1"] Tomasello was ranked No. 1 to start the season at 125lb. The Buckeyes will now have a decision to make about their situation at lightweight. There are four other 125-pounders listed on the Ohio State roster, three of whom would have likely been on redshirt this season.

If Tom Ryan and his coaching staff don't want to burn a redshirt, their only option is Hunter Lucas, who went 9-14 last year as a true freshman with six wins against Division I opponents. If they don't go with Lucas, we could see true freshman Dylan Koontz, Brady Koontz, or Brakan Mead.

Ryan briefly mentioned Tomasello during his 12 1/2-minute address to the media today but did not bring up any injuries.

Best Matches We Haven't Seen

The great thing about the NCAA season is that, like no where else in wrestling, it provides a true 'season' in which we get to see most of the top wrestlers against each other. It enables us to follow the stories and create a sort of hierarchy.
