Baylor senior wrestlers Brandon Brunner and Houston Clements are focused on winning a state team title in February and then will take their mat talents to the next level a year from now.
On Wednesday, Brunner signed to wrestle at South Dakota State under former UTC head coach Chris Bono, while Clements is staying in the South and has signed with North Carolina.
"The UNC coaches are great and they have expressed how much they want me to be part of the program," said Clements who is a two-time state medalist, two-time high school All-American and Ohio tournament of champions winner and has a 3.
"Signing with UNC means I have the opportunity to wrestle at a high level and attain a great education which is a win-win situation."
Brunner is a three-time state champion and carries a 3.4 GPA and committed to South Dakota State in the summer.
I have known coach Bono and assistant coach Israel Silva (former UTC wrestler) since I was in the fifth grade and they coached me in middle school when I attended the UTC Kids Club workouts for four years,” said Brunner. “So when they recruited me to attend South Dakota State it was a pretty easy decision to make.”
