When asked for a statement, Jordan replied, “I loved my time at OSU but I left OSU because of wrestle off situations and there were a lot of good kids around my weight. I didn’t want to have to fight for a spot all year. What separated Chattanooga from the other schools once I hit the portal was that I really liked the team and coaches. They are a big family there and I feel like I will fit in very well. The Ruschell brothers are awesome coaches and wrestlersBe like what was the deciding factor and what are you looking forward to”.
Rocky Jordan will now be continuing his final year of colligative wrestling at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga.
