After originally planning to wrestle at Binghamton University (where fellow Section 1 star Sam Speno is heading), Scarsdale senior and New York state runner-up Jacob Berkowitz has decided to change his decision to Northwestern University. A recent coaching change at Binghamton convinced Berkowitz to keep his options open, and he ultimately decided on Northwestern.
Things are a bit crazy recently with the baseball postseason getting underway (for those who are interested, I’ve taken over the LoHud Baseball beat this season), but I may do a story soon on Berko’s latest decision. He is expected to wrestle at 184 pounds at the collegiate level.
UPDATE: Apparently, Speno has also decided to attend another school due to Binghamton’s coaching change. The 2011 New York state runner-up will be wrestling at NC State. Apologies to Sam for the mix up, but I didn’t hear about it until after I heard about Berko.
