    Jackson Announces New Cyclone Wrestlers

    AMES, Iowa Iowa State wrestling head coach Kevin Jackson has announced his recruiting class for the 2011-12 season. There will be nine new signees joining the Cyclones next year, including some with names that Iowa State fans will immediately recognize.
    The nine new signees are: Connor Clarke (Sherwood, Ore.), Logan Molina (Lincoln, Neb.), Quean Smith (Highland Park, Mich.), Bo Schlosser (Bettendorf, Iowa), Aaron Sorenson (Forest City, Iowa), Alex Spooner (Forest City, Iowa), Tyler Swope (Davenport, Iowa), Shayden Terukina (Kamehameha-Kapalama, Hawaii) and Tanner Weatherman (Huxley, Iowa). Between the nine wrestlers, they have collected 13 state titles.
    I am really excited about the group that we are bringing in, Jackson said. I think that we have identified some really talented kids that have the ability to make an immediate impact, and if they are the best kids we have at that weight, they will wrestle.

    Tyler Swope has some potential. He has great quickness for a big guy.

    Not a bad class. It addresses our immediate needs and also brings in some guys who have a year or two to develop before stepping into the line-up.

    Re: Jackson Announces New Cyclone Wrestlers

    I agree that there are no blue chippers in this class. I do hope that once we get some depth and immediate needs covered, that we go after more blue chip recruit. Problems that were addressed are Hwt; with Kyle just coming off pretty extensive knee surgery and Matt Gibson not making grades 1st semester, hwt became a question mark. Tyler Swope and Quean will provide some big bodies to the weight. Schlosser, Connor Clarke, and Shayden Terukin will provide depth at 125, 133.

    Iowa. I really hoped we could have gotten him. We weren't in final 3, they were Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma.

    Wow...ISU has almost fallen off the face of the earth for wrestling. This kid is going to be very good.

    This class is sad...Jackson was horrible hire. Actually, he was one of the very few people that wanted to coach ISU.

    Re: Jackson Announces New Cyclone Wrestlers

    A little early to make those assumptions. A very good class last year. And the current high school juniors in the state of Iowa are very good. We need depth, we thought we were getting something very good in Chris Drouin, then he got hurt and cost us alot, because we didn't have DEPTH.
    I hope we have some money next year. Gabe Moreno hopefully is a sure thing. Then add in Iowa talent like Hathaway, Devos, Clark, Peters, Bremer, Laux for little weights. Middle weights like Gabe, Witte, and Meyer. Upper weights like Miklus, Koethe and Scanlan. Throw in potential out of state studs like Bruno, Massa, and Liberatore that I heard we are looking at. If we could get a 1/4 of these kids that will be a very good class.
    Just wasn't alot in Iowa this year. U of I only signed Grothus from the state and Trizzino as a walk on.

    Our recruiting ties hurt us.

    I agree that we have to develop those ties. Hopefully we are with Brandon, Florida (whrere Joey Cozart is from). They have 3 guys ranked high in Bruno #1 at 130, Liberatore #1 at 135, and Glass #5 at 152. I here alot of people in the wrestling forum that think KJ is a class act and hopefully that will pay dividends. Even Trizzino with strong Iowa ties spoke about almost going to Iowa State because he like the staff.

    This year's rankings won't be out until all the top schools announce, but even with the loss of Pena we'll still be top 10 or close to it.

    Top 5 recruiting class and people still think Jackson is a horrible hire. Let me guess, you have no clue about the Iowa State wrestling program?!
