Ohio State Buckeyes to be featured on Google+ Hangout

Nov. 19, 2013

The Big Ten wrestling powerhouse Ohio State Buckeyes will join USA Wrestling on its College Wrestling Google+ Hangout On Air series featuring some of the top college programs in the country.

The Ohio State wrestling hangout will begin tonight, Nov. 19 at 6 p.m. Eastern Time and will feature Buckeye Head Coach Tom Ryan, Two-Time National Champion Logan Stieber and Two-Time NCAA All-American Nick Heflin.

Tom Ryan is entering his eighth season as head coach for Ohio State. Ryan has coached three individual national champions and led the Buckeyes to six NCAA Top 10 finishes in his tenure. In 2009 Ryan received National Coach of the Year honors.

The 141-pound star for the Buckeyes, Logan Stieber, is arguably the best pound-for-pound wrestler in the NCAA. Stieber is a two-time NCAA Champion at 133 pounds and is looking for his third championship up a weight at 141 pounds. He is on pace to become only the fourth four-time NCAA Champion in the history of the sport. Most recently Stieber defeated 2013 undefeated NCAA Champion Kendric Maple in overtime of the 149-pound bout at the NWCA All-Star Classic.

Buckeye Senior Nick Heflin has a pair of fifth place NCAA finishes to his name at 174 pounds. Heflin has decided to compete at the 197 pound weight class in this his final year at Ohio State in search of a NCAA title.

The Ohio State Wrestling Google+ Hangout On Air can be viewed live on the USA Wrestling YouTube Channel and will also be recorded and archived for fans unable to watch live.

Fans are encouraged to tweet questions for the panelists using the hashtag #BuckeyeHangout. Questions will be answered live on the air.
