Ohio State's blue-chip true frosh Greg Kerkvliet says he is ready to compete for the Buckeyes now and does not plan on taking a redshirt.
Despite electing not to repair a recently torn ACL, Kerkvliet told Steelwood Radio that though anything can happen, "As of now, the plan is to go".
Kerkvliet also said he weighs about 235 and plans to get to 250, which means that he would have to win a wrestle-off with #10-ranked Chase Singletary to make the starting lineup, assuming that Singletary does not move down to 197 and challenge #1-ranked Kollin Moore. Singletary made the round of 16 at last season's NCAA Tournament.
Kerkvliet will be busy this fall, as he next wrestles at the U23 Men's Freestyle World Championships in Budapest, which take place from October 28 through November 3.
