Today, on his weekly coaches show on OSU Max, Oklahoma State head coach John Smith confirmed that 2021 NCAA champion AJ Ferrari would miss the remainder of the 2021-22 season due to injury.
Two weeks ago, Ferrari and OSU cross country All-American Isai Rodriguez were injured as Ferrari was passing a vehicle on a two-lane highway. At the time, Ferrari's condition was listed as "fair", and there was hope that he would return this year.
Smith also indicated that Ferrari would have surgery with the goal of returning for the 2022-23 season.
There will be more information as archived audio of coach Smith's interview becomes available.
