Two-time state champion Gavin Hoffman (Montoursville, Pa.) verbally committed to Ohio State early on Saturday afternoon while competing at the NHSCA National Duals in Virginia Beach. The No. 17 overall wrestler in the 2018 class joins No. 13 Jaden Mattox (Grove City Central Crossing, Ohio) as a commit for the Buckeyes, both wrestlers also won Flo Nationals titles earlier this spring.
Hoffman additionally has amassed a NHSCA Junior Nationals title, a Super 32 Challenge runner-up finish, and a Cadet National freestyle runner-up finish (that one at 220 pounds) within the last twelve months. The projected 197 pound wrestler in college ended the 2016-17 season ranked No. 6 nationally at 195 pounds.
