DiSabato testified Tuesday before the House Civil Justice Committee during a hearing for a bill that would allow victims of sexual abuse that happened at a state-sponsored university to sue the university.
“They told me they went to their superiors, [and] their superiors told them to be happy where we're at and keep our mouths shut,” DiSabato said.

He also claimed that one of those superiors was OSU football player and two-time Heisman winner Archie Griffin, according to WBNS.
DiSabato’s brother, Mike DiSabato, was also on the wrestling team and one of the first people to speak of Jordan’s alleged knowledge of the sexual abuse.
Adam DiSabato also testified that Jordan called him and asked the former captain to rebuke his brother’s claims, according to WBNS.
“Jim Jordan called me crying, crying, groveling...Begging me to go against my brother.” DiSabato said. “Begging me. Crying for a half hour. That's the kind of cover-up that's going on there.”
Jordan has repeatedly denied having any knowledge of Strauss’ abuse.
