Nick Suriano has re-enrolled at Rutgers.
After taking an Olympic redshirt season in 2019-20, the 2019 NCAA champion is now listed in the school's online directory. The news was first reported by Rutgers Sports Insider, NJ Advance Media's subscription text messaging service.
A native of Paramus, N.J., Suriano was a four-time New Jersey state wrestling champion at Bergen Catholic, with a perfect 159-0 prep record. He started his collegiate career at Penn State, compiling a 16-3 record as a freshman during the 2016-17 season, but injuries kept him from competing at the Big Ten and NCAA championships. Suriano then transferred to Rutgers, where he was a two-time NCAA national finalist, winning the 133-pound title at the 2019 NCAAs in Pittsburgh, just two weeks after claiming a Big Ten conference crown.
Suriano has one season of college wrestling eligibility remaining.
