Gomez transferring to Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. — Chris Bono’s wrestling room just got a whole lot better thanks to Austin Gomez’s commitment.

Six months ago he announced he was retiring from wrestling due to injuries, then in April Gomez entered the transfer portal. And after visiting Wisconsin on May 31, he announced he found his new home in Madison.
