Nick Sparling of Dublin, Ohio, has given a verbal commitment to play college golf at Ohio State in 2014.
Sparling also visited Notre Dame, Tennessee, Illinois, Miami (Ohio) and Indiana.
“I chose the Buckeyes because of the new indoor facilities they are building, the great golf courses they have access to and the guys on the team,” Sparling said. “I really connected with them, and I like Coach (Donnie) Darr and Coach (Ryan) Potter.”
The Dublin Coffman High School junior believes Ohio State will “help me realize my dream of playing on the PGA Tour.”
Sparling won the 2012 Ohio State high school championship on the OSU Scarlet Course.
