Osceola swimmer Alex Wittman put an end to the recruiting process by committing to Ohio State on Monday.

Wittman made the decision a week after visiting the Columbus campus. She already made trips to Tulane and Vanderbilt and had one scheduled for Indiana.

But she canceled her last one because she wanted to be a Buckeye.

“I already had an idea Ohio State was where I wanted to go,” Wittman said. “The trip just sold it for me. I felt it was the best for me, and a place where I can really excel.”

Wittman, a distance specialist, finished seventh in the 200 free (1:53.18) and 500 free (5:02.87) at last year’s Class 2A state meet. Three weeks ago at the Pinellas County Athletic Conference meet, Wittman set a record in the 500 free, winning in 4:51.68.

Wittman is the third county swimmer to commit to a Div. I program in the past month, joining Shorecrest’s John Farese (Florida) and Palm Harbor University’s Tristan Sanders (Michigan).
