Start hitting the weights and doing cardio.

Clean Up your diet

Then sign up for some classes. They don't have to be World Class schools, just enough to get you some experience then if you decide thats what you really want to do. Save up and move out to a world class school

Some kind of striking (Muay Thai, boxing/kickboxing, Shotokan/Kyokushin karate or Taekwondo if you can find a really good school) would be good.

and/or

Some kind of submission grappling art (Brazillian Jiu Jitsu, Sambo or Catch Wrestling) to supplement your wrestling.

Physical conditioning is always good too, but since you're probably not going to be competing for at least a couple of years anyways I wouldn't really worry too much about it.

You're going to need all of the pieces of the puzzle to fit together at some point, and just as long as you get everything in eventually it doesn't really matter what order it's in.
