Wednesday, November 10, 2021was a big day for high school wrestlers across the country. Many within the Class of 2022 had the opportunity to sign their National Letter of Intent (NLI) with their chosen college or university. 

With that, here is a look at who signed where across the NCAA Division I level (ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, EIWA, MAC, Pac-12, and SoCon). 

**Note: This is not a complete list.** Many schools have yet to publish a release announcing their Class of 2022 “Signing Day” activities (Denoted N/A). Also, many schools have yet to post a “commitment graphic” to their official wrestling team Twitter Page. The schools that have posted a release to their university website are linked.

The below list will be adjusted as more information becomes available. It’s also worth noting that Service Academy’s and Ivy League institutions do not sign NLIs. As such, these schools are not listed below. 

Did we miss any “Signing Day” commitments? Feel free to contact TOM Site Editor Christopher Miller (Email: cmiller@theopenmat.com, Twitter: @C_Miller_atTOM) or DM to our official Twitter account (@theopenmat).
