Ohio State lands prized recruit Echemendia

Anthony Echemendia was a double champion in Fargo

Ohio State landed one of the prized recruits in the Class of 2019, Anthony Echemendia, a native of Cuba who won double titles in Fargo this past summer.

He made the announcement via Twitter on Wednesday.

Last season, Echemendia compiled a 22-0 record and won a state title in Arizona for Sunnyside at 152 pounds.

Following Eschemedia's announcement, Ohio State coach Tom Ryan wrote the following on Twitter about his new recruit: "Humble and hard working. Accustomed to discomfort and the hard way. We are excited to welcome Anthony from Cuba 🇨🇺 to Buckeye Nation! He will be enrolling this January. Go Bucks!"

Hope he does well.
His committing to Iowa State and then running around won't be forgotten.
Hope his classroom work at THE Ohio State University is up to snuff so we do get to see him on the mat.

Willie - why can you not forget that he committed and then decided another path was better for him. This attitude that 17 and 18 year olds can’t change their mind is absurd. Everyone should want what’s best for the kid not their own opinions or team loyalty.

Willie - if he'd have gone to Penn State, he'd have needed to pass muster in the classroom. At Ohio State, I doubt anyone checks.

Ohio State is ranked #54 and Penn State #57 by US News and World Report (2019). Not that it makes much difference as athletes can be admitted with the NCAA minimums, 2.3 core GPA and corresponding level on the SAT or ACT.
