After winning state as a sophomore and a junior, and being state runner-up as a senior, Poteau wrestler Tyler Tustin was pretty much destined to grapple at the collegiate level. He made it official Wednesday morning.
Tustin signed with the University of Central Oklahoma in a signing ceremony Wednesday morning at the high school.
“I went up there on an official visit a couple of weeks ago,” Tustin said. “I felt like I was going to fit in really well there. I really liked the coaching staff and the campus — just everything about it. I just feel like I'm really going to fit in there. I'm really looking forward to it.”
