COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio State men's golf head coach Donnie Darr announced the signing of three to National Letters of Intent Tuesday. Clark Engle, Nicholas Jan and Josh Wick are set to join the Buckeyes for the 2013-14 season.
"I'm very excited to have these three young men join our team and I look forward to helping them grow," Darr said. "They are all very good players and each one brings something different to the program. Clark is a consistent ball striker, while Nick has a great short game. Josh plays with so much passion and has a love for Ohio State that his attitude will be contagious."
