Jagger Condomitti has two years left to get a pair of PIAA Class 3A wrestling ti­tles.

The Northamp­ton ju­nior won’t have to ag­o­nize for those two sea­sons about his fu­ture.

Condomitti an­nounced on so­cial me­dia Tues­day that he has com­mit­ted to the Univer­sity of Nebraska.

“Af­ter many dif­fi­cult dis­cus­sions and sleep­less nights, I am proud to an­nounce that I have de­cided to fur­ther my aca­demic and ath­letic ca­reer at the Univer­sity of Nebraska!” he said on Twit­ter.

Condomitti was a state fourth-place fin­isher last sea­son at 145 pounds. He also was in­stru­men­tal in the Konkrete Kids’ run to the Dis­trict 11 and PIAA 3A team tour­na­ment run­ner-up fin­ishes.

Thanks to a large group of grad­u­ates, Condomitti will be among the lead­ers the next two sea­sons for Northamp­ton coach Seth Lisa. He also gets to spend his last var­sity sea­sons along­side his brother, Da­gen, who is a fresh­man in 2019-20.

Condomitti, who has an 81-20 record in two sea­sons for Northamp­ton, will join Beth­le­hem Catholic grad­u­ate Mikey Labri­ola at Nebraska. The red­shirt sopho­more was sixth at last sea­son’s NCAA Tour­na­ment and fourth at the Big Ten Cham­pi­onships.

Also, Eas­ton grad Bryan Sny­der is the Corn­huskers’ as­so­ciate head coach.
