The Ohio Wrestling Squad welcomes the addition of four new wrestlers for the 2015-16 season to their early signing class.

All four wrestlers bring very successful high school careers with them to the college wrestling level.

Kade Kowalski from Tri-Valley High School brings a 138-2-career record to the Green and White. He was the 2014 Division-I State Champion of the 145-class. As a freshman in 2012 he claimed the NHSCA Freshman National Championship and hopes to start his freshman career at Ohio University in a similar way.

Cameron Kelly brings a 101-7-career record from Bellbrook High School to the wrestling Bobcats. He was a three-year state finalist in the 132-class, and he claimed the title in 2012. Just like Kowalski, he earned the T.O.C Championship in 2012. He left his high school as a Super 32 All-American.

Kyle Kaminski is a two-time CIT Champion, NCL Champion, and USAW-Ohio Freestyle State Champion from Padua High School. He has placed fifth in the State Tournament twice in the 138-pound weight class. The three-time USAW-Ohio National Team member brings a 129-18-career record with him to Ohio University. And this newfound grappler could not be more excited to wrestle at the college level.

“I’m finally proud to officially announce my commitment to continue my wrestling and academic career at Ohio University,” Kaminski posted to his Twitter account on Nov. 6.

Dontae McGee comes all the way from Admiral Farragut Academy, in Florida, to the Green and White grapplers with a career record of 177-13. He is a four-time Florida state qualifier, and he clinched the 182-weight class crown his junior year. He was named a Fargo Cadet All-American, as well as a NHSCA All-American.
