Whisler heading to Terrapins

Howland, Ohio (WYTV)- David-Brian Whisler is coming off a personal best, finishing 7th at the ASICS/Vaughan Junior Nationals in Fargo, North Dakota in the freestyle division. Just days later, Whisler made what some could argue, the biggest decision of his life, picking a college.

“I have always wanted to wrestle at a Big 10 school,” said Whisler who committed to the University of Maryland Saturday on a wrestling scholarship.

The Howland senior has had quite the high school career, posting an 111-21 mark with two state tournament appearances, finishing 4th and 7th.

Howland Head Coach William Beasom tells 33 Sports that Whisler is ranked 16th in the country, and is the first Tigers wrestler to be ranked in nearly 30 years.

Whisler will wrestle at 174 to begin his career in College Park, put says that he could move up to 180.
