Countryside senior outside hitter Davionna DiSalvatore told the Times on Tuesday that she orally committed to play volleyball at Ohio State.

DiSalvatore traveled to Columbus in July and committed to the Buckeyes before the end of her visit. She was receiving interest from USF and Miami, but once Ohio State offered, she made her decision almost immediately.

"I really wanted to go to Ohio State," DiSalvatore said. "I wanted to go there from the beginning."

DiSalvatore was a Times first team all county selection last season and was named to the Pinellas County Athletic Conference North County first team.

"The coaches (at Ohio State) are really nice and the girls are nice and I really like the program," she said. "It's Division I, and I really wanted to go to the Big-10 or the Pac-10."

DiSalvatore's sister GiOnna plays softball for UCLA in the Pac-10.
