Ohio State freshman goalie Christian Tomei announced via Twitter on Monday night that he had entered the NCAA Transfer Portal.
A Jupiter, Fla. native, Tomei was a standout at Oxbridge Academy, where he helped lead the ThunderWolves to a 17-4 record and an FHSAA State Tournament appearance in 2019. He also earned first-team all-state and all-region honors all four years in high school.
As a senior, Tomei made 235 saves in 21 Games (11.1 per game) and was named Mr. Florida Lacrosse. He was also named an Under Armour All-American and ranked as the No. 40 player in the class of 2019 by Inside Lacrosse.
Back in the fall, he played for Team USA as part of their 32-man U19 training roster.
The 6-foot-4, 284-pound goalie did not see any action for the Buckeyes during his freshman season.
Tomei is the latest notable name to have entered the NCAA Transfer Portal. Last Friday, Ty Xanders of Inside Lacrosse reported that multiple impact players at mid-major programs, especially seniors, had entered the transfer portal, including Bucknell attackman Will Yorke, Saint Joseph’s goalie Mike Adler, and Hobart attackman Eric Holden.
