The 2017-18 season remains in the books which means the majority of us have actually currently started eagerly anticipating next year. With that we at IAwrestle will take a look at the group of wrestlers throughout the state of Iowa’s three Division I programs and bring you our top five wrestlers we are the most ecstatic to see come off redshirt seasons.1.
Jacob Warner (Iowa)– 197
In 2017 Tom Brands landed the top overall recruiting class which was headlined by two top ten ranked wrestlers, Spencer Lee and Jacob Warner. Thanks to ommon sense informs you that a 20 year-old Marcus Coleman is going to be a lot better than a 19 year-old Marcus Coleman and if both of them are considered freshman its a pretty easy decision.”The truth is that 19 year-old Coleman was quite dang great. His redshirt record was an outstanding 24-2, with his only losses coming to UNI’s Taylor Lujan, which is definitely nothing to obtain down about. He completed his season by winning 4 straight opens: Lindenwood, UNI, Flash Flanagan, and the Duhawk Open.Other names considered: Max Murin(Iowa)– 141 Simply losing out on our top five was 141-pound Hawkeye Max Murin. That isn’t to say that Murinpotential isn’t amazing, but the truth is he will be getting in into a three-horse race for the starting area. This previous year we saw Brands alternate in between sophomore Vince Turk and freshman Carter Happel who each had their
moments on the mat. After winning a late season battle off, Turk secured the post season spot, and he ran with all of it the way to a 3-2 efficiency at the NCAA’s. Heading into next year Murin will be a strong threat to take Turk’s spot, but it will likely be a pet battle.
