Seth Gross Enters Transfer Portal

National champ Seth Gross has entered the transfer portal.

First reported by Jason Bryant of MatTalkOnline, FloWrestling has confirmed with a source who has access to the NCAA transfer portal.

The two-time NCAA finalist wrestled just one match this season, a pin over Josiah Kline of Arizona State back in November. On the evening of January 17th, Gross confirmed he was out for the year.

It is unclear at this time if Gross will receive a sixth year of eligibility or not. It is also not clear what schools, if any, South Dakota State will potentially block Gross from transferring to.

Wrestlers who enter the transfer portal can still remain at their school. Entering the portal does not mean the student-athlete has to transfer. However, any student who enters the portal runs the risk of having their school change or outright cancel their scholarship package for the next school year. The program also do not need to reserve a spot on their roster for the athlete.

As mentioned above, the Jackrabbit coaching staff and administration may still block Gross from transferring to certain schools, however, they cannot block him from speaking to other coaching staffs.

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 graduate school.


Seth Gross makes Transfer Decision
Apple Valley. Iowa City. Brookings. Now Madison. National champion Seth Gross has made his college decision. In the 2017-2018 season Seth Gross won the NCAA national championship and went undefeated...

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

Gross developed spondylolisthesis and underwent surgery in January.

He won his NCAA title at 133 pounds last March 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.

It is my understanding that Gross will have one year of eligibility remaining at Wisconsin and that is only if the NCAA approves his waiver for a sixth year medical redshirt.
NCAA approval is pending with Gross being quite confident in the outcome
