    This morning, on social media, 2015 NCAA champion and national team member, Nathan Tomasello, announced that he will be moving to Oklahoma to train at the Oklahoma RTC. Tomasello stated that situation appeals to him because of the presence of Sooners head coach Lou Rosselli, who was an assistant coach at Ohio State while Tomasello was in college. He'll also have the opportunity to work with 2012 Olympian Sam Hazewinkel, who currently serves as the head coach of the Oklahoma RTC.

    Tomasello served as an assistant coach at Duke for the 2020-21, which was his first collegiate coaching post. He came to Durham after earning All-American honors four times for the Buckeyes, placing third three times after winning a national title as a redshirt freshman. As a senior, Tomasello became only the 15th wrestler to win four Big Ten championships.

    Recently, Tomasello made the national team after finishing third at the Olympic Trials. As the seventh seed, Tomasello shook off a 3-2 loss to runner-up Vito Arujau and posted 13-6 and 12-6 wins over Sean Russell and Zane Richards, respectively, to grab third place at 57 kgs. In 2019, Tomasello was a runner-up at the Bill Farrell, the Cerro Pelado, and Senior Nationals.
