    Kyle Larson Chooses Cyclones

    Valley's Larson chooses Cyclones | The Des Moines Register | DesMoinesRegister.com

    “It’s just where my heart’s always been,” Larson said. “Since I was a little kid, I always dreamed of wrestling for the Cyclones. I was raised a Cyclone and that had a lot to do with it. Their wrestling history pretty much shows their greatness and I feel like I can accomplish all my goals there academically and on the wrestling mat.”

    Fantastic. Iowa really thought they were going to get him. Should provide us with more quality in the room.

    Re: Kyle Larson Chooses Cyclones

    Congratulations, and welcome aboard, Kyle!

    And best of luck as you finish out your high school career.

    Note also the two good articles on Larson and Destin McCauley out of Andy Hamilton, who came to the Des Moines Register this last summer from the Iowa City Press Citizen. The McCauley article is linked in the other thread. At the link above you can also find it on the right side of the page - listed currently as the most popular link of any Register article, sports or otherwise. Nicely done, Mr. Hamilton.

    Re: Kyle Larson Chooses Cyclones

    lets hope they beat the **** out of Iowa. **** the Brands brothers and their ********. I would like to skull **** those mother****ers and tell there mom how horrible of human beings she raised.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: Kyle Larson Chooses Cyclones

    The link has changed. Here is the new one:

    Wrestling: Valley star commits to Iowa State | The Des Moines Register | DesMoinesRegister.com

    I think the article is identical, except I don't recall before the mention of Meeks and Moreno (other Des Moines area members of this recruiting class). I'm also not sure this photo was there before, but it is now:

    Wow. Get a grip. Your post says more about you than about them.

    Anyone know why KJ is so intent on signing kids early with such low level accolades? We've been doing this a lot.

    That said we got Destin Mac so I'm pleased as punch anyway.

    I'm not positive, but I would suspect it's because he's still trying to create plenty of depth within the team and in the room. Right now we have a lot of guys hurt, and after this weekend it seems there are two more. We seem to have great depth in the upper weights, but not so much down low (especially with Schlosser seeming like a no go), so I personally really like seeing this. Seems when we have a guy listed at 184 on the roster who is wrestling heavyweight, then more depth in general is a good thing.

    I can buy this. I just find it curious we sign the kind of guys in the fall that most top teams wait until the spring to sign. It probably doesn't matter much.

    True, True. That's a good point. I have no clue about the particulars of recruiting. Anyone else out there know if there's any general strategy to it all?
