    If I was planning on going into MMA after college, I would jump at the chance to train with D1 wrestlers for four years. Wrestling has an off-season that would give you plenty of opportunities to train in boxing, Muay Thai, BJJ, etc.

    Wrestling will make you tough, insanely strong and well-conditioned. Plus, it may provide the single best base for MMA of any combat sport.

    You don't have to necessarily make any friends first. Find out where the wrestling team practices when you get to campus. Go up to the coach and tell him that you know you probably won't get a scholarship and probably won't get to compete, but that you'd like to train with the team. Tell him about your love of wrestling and how your poor rural Ohio high school couldn't afford wrestling mats, or something. Tell him that you'll be aware of your place and position but will train just as hard as the All-Americans, and would be willing to mop the mats after every practice, or fold towels or keep score during dual meets.

    Hell, just print this out and read it verbatim.

    I don't need to print it out because I was already jotting it down haha
