Iowa State’s wrestling team just got a lot better.

According to WHO-TV 13 sports director Keith Murphy’s Twitter feed, three-time defending state wrestling champion John Meeks has changed his commitment from Nebraska to Iowa State.

Meeks, a Des Moines Roosevelt student, is currently the nation’s fifth-ranked wrestler at 130-pounds, according to HighSchoolWrestling.net. Meeks is 123-0 over his first three seasons at Roosevelt.
