Sowder on why he chose Ohio State …
“I chose Ohio State not only because of the world class athletics, but also the highly sought after academics to set me on the right career path I want to take for the rest of my life. The coaching staff and team make you feel a part of everything even before you officially arrive on campus and the amazing athletic facilities are incomparable.”
