Seth Gross has a new home.

The 2018 NCAA Division I 133-pound national champion announced that he will be finishing his college career at Wisconsin after previously competing for South Dakota State. He was recently accepted into Wisconsin's School of Business.

Chris Bono, Gross' former coach at South Dakota State, was hired to lead the Badgers in March of 2018.

Gross explained his decision to the website H1Story.

This was a big decision to make. Surprisingly the toughest choice I had to make, was not which school I wanted to attend, but rather if I wanted to go back to college and compete, or get a head start on my international career. I know at some point my days of competing will come to an end, so I made the decision after entering the transfer portal that if I went to grad school it would be a top school for one of my passions outside of wrestling, which is business. I wasn't going to do an easy grad program for a year just to wrestle and end up not completing it. So, the past two months have been spent studying for my GMAT entrance exam to make sure I earned a competitive score that would admit me into a top business program. With that being said as of May 24th, 2019, I have been accepted into the Wisconsin School of Business and will be working towards a masters degree in Supply Chain Management.

Gross won his NCAA title at 133 pounds in 2018 by defeating Michigan's Stevan Micic 13-8 in the NCAA finals. He was an NCAA runner-up to Iowa's Cory Clark in 2017.
