Ben Darmstadt is likely to miss at least part of the the 2018-19 season due to injury. If possible (Ivy League has their own guidelines), Cornell may apply for a medical redshirt in the hopes of maintaining his final three years of eligibility.
Darmstadt's injury means that Ben Honis will go 197 for the Big Red with Jeramy Sweaney at heavyweight. Honis was an NCAA qualifier in 2017 as a sophomore.
An Ohio native, Darmstadt took a greyshirt after graduating high school in 2016, and then placed sixth at the NCAA tournament this past March. He entered the national tournament in Cleveland as the two seed, finishing 34-4 overall on the year with 26 bonus point victories.
During the 2016-17 season, Honis split with Darmstadt, falling in the Jonathan Kaloust Bearcat Open but then winning in the seventh place match at the Southern Scuffle. Watch the latter match below.
