Ranked No. 2 overall in the Class of 2020, Braxton Amos (Parkersburg South, W.Va.) verbally committed to the University of Wisconsin on Friday evening. After missing his freshman season of high school due to injury, Amos is undefeated in two seasons over high school competition, in which he has been completely dominant; he has earned titles at the Walsh Ironman and Powerade tournaments during each season before going on to win the state tournament.
Outside the high school season, Amos has won titles at the Super 32 Challenge each of the previous two years in October. He was a Cadet (now 16U) Nationals double champion in Fargo during the summer of 2016 and 2017. This summer Amos was a Junior National champion in freestyle, and advanced to the finals of Greco-Roman, both coming at 220 pounds. He projects most likely as a 285 in college, and will join No. 95 Aidan Medora (Brookfield Academy, Wis.) as an early commit to the Badgers for their 2020 class.
