After much speculation, Destin McCauley, a top recruit from the Class of 2011, has made his college decision. He will be enrolling at Nebraska, he announced on his Twitter page on Sunday night.
McCauley considered a handful of schools in addition to Nebraska, including Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. He is expected to compete at 149 pounds.
It's the third college commitment for the 20-year-old McCauley. He originally committed to Wisconsin as a high school senior in October of 2010 before enrolling at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. Just over a year later, in November of 2011, McCauley announced that he would be enrolling at Iowa State. But after another year at the OTC, McCauley asked for his release from Iowa State.
McCauley was a five-time state champion and six-time state finalist at Apple Valley (Minn.) High School. He has been a Junior National freestyle champion, FILA Junior National freestyle champion, and Junior World Team member.
