AJ Ferrari Out For Rest Of 2022 Season

2021 NCAA champion AJ Ferrari will not be wrestling for the remainder of the 2022 NCAA season due to injuries suffered in a car accident on January 24th. Oklahoma State student journalist Braden Bush reported on Twitter that Oklahoma State head coach John Smith broke the news on his radio show.

This is in contrast with Ferrari's social media post four days ago where he stated he was hoping to be back soon.

Prior to Ferrari's car accident, he was ranked #1 at 197 lbs and undefeated on the year. In Ferrari's abscence, junior Gavin Sitka has stepped up as the 197 lbs starter and gone 1-4 in duals.

It is unlikely that Ferrari will qualify for a medical redshirt and lose his bid to become a 5X NCAA champion.
