    I just did some reading on this Henry Cejudo. That guy is amazing, I don't know how a high schooler could be defeating NCAA national champions, it is unbelievable.

    I wonder if he will go to college? Sounds like he was previously coached by Tom Brands, so I would bet that Iowa would have an inside track.

    Re: Iowa wrestlers in the olympics

    a lot of wrestlers that are that good dont end up going to college, or at least not right away. a kid that i used to wrestle against actually quit high school his sophomore year (i believe he got homeschooled afterwords) and he moved to colorado to the us olympic training center.
