    Re: Ross Larson

    To not wrestle in the summer and be that dominant is impressive.

    Another article on Ross

    Lots of Iowa State connections - Dave Powell, Dave Ewing, and I hear Mitch Mueller is helping there also.

    Re: Ross Larson

    This is the first ive seen video of him wrestling but curious if he has other skills except throwing. Is good on his feet or good from the top position? Im not taking anything away from just know that if he were to wrestle at the college level he wont be able to throw as much, they are to good for that.

    Re: Ross Larson

    This is posted by cywr89 and seems to be close to ISU program

    Yes, Ross Larson can throw because he is so powerful but 90% of his takedowns are outside singles, power doubles. ankle picks and shrugs. He has it all on his feet. He gets his pins because the cross-face cradle and armbar series. He has spent a total of less than a minute on the bottom this season so that will be an area of concern. Also, he will have to learn how to wrestle on top when he can't get the pin like Varner and Reader. Both of them were pinning machines in HS, also.

    Re: Ross Larson

    Yeah, I would consider him as high risk of flaming out once he can't just physically overpower guys. Nobody has any idea how good he is at getting out from bottom, or riding, etc... Not competing in summer tournaments makes him a big question mark.

    Not saying in any way that I wouldn't like to see him at ISU. Just that right now we have no way to guess if he'd be a four time AA or if he would never crack the lineup.

    Re: Ross Larson

    This kid is going to be great in college when he can focus 100% on wrestling. He'd be a huge get. Hopefully Tanner Weatherman and Dakota Bauer are in his ear.

    Re: Ross Larson

    I have to disagree, Judoka. We need a 197 pounder and what a great place to get one in Ankeny, Iowa. I agree he needs to be polished; that's what Reader and Zabriskie are for. We know he's good on his feet.
    With Kyven the only true 197 pounder on the team, bringing in Jesse Doyle and Ross Larson will strengthen that weight in the future. I hope Cole can bulk up and become a 197 pounder, just not sure if he can.

    Re: Ross Larson

    Jesse Doyle looks like 184 to me. He hasn't grown since a freshman. Been at the same weight all through high school. He is already very stocky and not that tall. Wrestling at 189 as a freshman and still at 182 as a senior.

    I am not disagreeing that we should be trying to get him. I just don't think it's possible to justify much scholarship money right away for a kid who has so many unknowns. So if somebody else is willing to take on that risk and offer him big bucks I don't think it would be smart for us to try to match that. I'm interested in seeing his potential and I'd love to see him do that in a Cyclone singlet. But I'm not going to think he's the second coming of Cael Sanderson, or even assume he's better than other guys already on the roster, until we see him against guys that he can't just totally dominate physically. Has he even wrestled a single guy who is a nationally ranked recruit?

    Urbandale kid is awful.


    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: Ross Larson

    Larson made everybody look awful, including the #2 ranked 195 pounder. That's what's so intriguing about him, he just so totally destroyed anybody he wrestled. I don't think we would get by just offering him a partial scholarship. But then based on his own comments, we can't be sure he isn't still thinking about football or baseball.

    Re: Ross Larson

    I think he may be visiting ISU this weekend and it sounds like he is going to pursue a wrestling career.

    That's my thought as well. If we can get him to walk on with the promise of hefty scholarship money when/if he proves himself while redshirting, I'm all for it. But I think somebody will take the risk on giving him big bucks right now. We already have one Joey Cozart on the team. We can't afford the chance of another.
