Hempfield wrestler Krivus picks Virginia
TribLIVE Sports Videos
Just a few days after visiting the college, Hempfield junior Sam Krivus committed to Virginia for wrestling Tuesday afternoon.
Krivus, a three-time PIAA placewinner who won a Class AAA title as a sophomore and has a career record of 126-12, chose his college destination fairly early in the recruiting process compared to most Division I-level wrestlers. Pitt also offered him a scholarship, and Ohio State asked him to make an official visit.
“I've always liked UVa growing up, and I got to know the coaches really well — they're great guys,” said Krivus, who wrestled in the 126-pound weight class during the 2014 individual postseason. “And the team, they're like a big family.
“I thought it through, and I talked to my parents. I looked at the pros and cons of each school, and UVa really was the best choice.”
