NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. -- Once a linebacker verbal commitment to Greg Schiano, Andrew Campolattano now calls himself a Scarlet Knight under the tutelage of wrestling coach Scott Goodale. The 197-pound red-shirt junior transferred to Rutgers after beginning his career at Ohio State, and discussed his new surroundings at media day with ScarletReport.com.
Campolattano, who is eligible in January to wrestle at 197 pounds, went 40-26 during his career as a Buckeye including two appearances in the NCAA Championships.
The red-shirt junior brings Big Ten experience to a roster preparing to make the same move. Speaking at wrestling media day at the College Avenue Gymnasium, Campolattano explained his thoughts on returning to New Jersey and the decision to wrestle instead of play football at the college level.
