The new Jennings Wrestling Facility, the first such facility dedicated solely to wrestling training at Ohio State in years, opened in the Spring of 20190. This state of the art facility replaced the Steelwood Athletic Training Facility west of campus on Kenny Road, which was shared with the school's gymnastics, and fencing teams.
This new wrestling facility occupies three levels. The main level features a practice area with five full-size wrestling mats, along with workout equipment, the upper level includes the coaches' offices, meeting room, and alumni lounge, while the basement contains the locker rooms and athletic training facilities.
Ohio State head wrestling coach Tom Ryan sees the value of the new wrestling facility for current wrestlers as a recruiting tool for would-be Buckeyes and RTC Athletes.
"When you have a facility to the standard that this one is, it screams value; it screams importance; it screams that when you come here, you are going to be treated in a first-class way," said Ryan.
