DiJulius Issues Verbal to Ohio State

Johnni Gives OSU Four Impact Recruits in 2011

Kevin Schlosser;

The Ohio State wrestling program has had a busy spring on the recruiting front and the good news has continued to roll in with their fourth verbal commitment from the Class of 2011. On Friday Walsh Jesuit junior Johnni DiJulius gave head coach Tom Ryan his verbal to wrestle at OSU. The three-time Ohio state finalist is expected to sign his National Letter of Intent in the fall.

“It is one of the best feelings in the world to say that I am going to be a Buckeye,” stated Johnni DiJulius in an interview on Monday night. “I really think it is the best choice I ever made and I hope when I am done they can feel the same way about investing in me.”

DiJulius is a two-time DII Ohio state champion for the Warriors. As a freshman he lost in overtime to Aurora’s Ty Mitch at 103 pounds since then he has been perfect at state. Moving up the last two years he won his first state title at 119 pounds and his second at 125 as a junior. After three years he is 130-6 in high school with all six losses to wrestlers that were ranked in the top-three nationally at their weight.

“I have always been an Ohio State fan so it really is an honor to get the opportunity to wrestle for the Buckeyes. I am going to do everything I can do to become the best wrestler I can be,” offered the humbled recruit. “I want to set my goals high and represent my team, the coaches, my family, and the school in a way they can be proud.”

DiJulius has been a highly regarded wrestler throughout his high school career. He was considered the 26th ranked junior in the Class of 2011 according to the most recent InterMat class rankings and he finished this past season as the 12th ranked 125 pound wrestler in their individual all-class rankings.

“The Ohio State wrestling program is one of the best in the country from the coaches and the facilities to your workout partners and schedule. I am going to have a lot of friends on the team, it is close to home, and if we work hard we are going to be able to accomplish all of our goals,” stated the future Buckeye.

DiJulius is the fourth member of the 2010-2011 OSU recruiting class joining Monroeville juniors Hunter Stieber and Cam Tessari, and post-graduate Derek Garcia. Together they have combined to win twelve individual state championships with the possibility to add three more next season. All four will sign their NLI in the November.
