As usual, the truth lies somewhere in the middle...as many are saying a NU degree is unquestionably more valuable than a OSU degree. A "wrestling degree" from John Smith is also unquestionably more valuable than a wrestling degree from Matt Storniolo.
I think this shows CY fully (as fully as possible as a teenager, at least) committing to a career in wrestling instead of hedging his bets with a better degree from (all due respect) a lesser wrestling school. It's a gamble, if he doesn't break through and make it as a top senior level athlete then this was probably not a good move and he might wish he had the better degree. If he makes it, then it was a good move.
