Wadsworth High School senior Nick Tavanello will continue his academic and wrestling careers next year on scholarship at Ohio State University after giving an oral commitment.
Tavanello wrestled at 215 pounds the past three years, winning a Division I individual state title as a sophomore and junior and helping Wadsworth win a team state title as a sophomore.
Amateur Wrestling News ranked Tavanello as the top underclassman at 215 pounds in the country last season.
Tavanello enters this season with a 137-9 career record after going 42-7 as a freshman, 47-1 as a sophomore and 48-1 as a junior.
Pittsburgh, Ohio, Kent State, North Carolina and Virginia Tech also heavily recruited him.
