    the only thing to report so far.....

    Eric Thompson is staying.

    You correct but he's speaking towards underclassmen and recruits.

    Z, Varner, Fanthrope, Gallick, Reader, Burke - I've seen either interviews or paper articles where they have stated they are staying. I would assume Gallick, Clark, and Ward are staying as well. Maybe someone can shed light on them. That would leave Cyler as the only upperclassmen in question.

    Great news on Thompson! I agree no news is good news.

    Thompson staying is real good news. Hopefully that will start the dominoes to get a lot of the other younger guys to stick around.

    Re: Defection thread.

    On Thompsons bio, it said he was a junior national Free Style champion, so he would probably like working with Jackson.

    Re: Defection thread.

    From every interview, Mueller sure seems like he'd stay as well.

    You're right - I forgot to put him in the list as well.

    Re: Defection thread.

    I'm only worried about Cyler and the incoming recruits. Feel pretty good everyone else is staying.

    I would hope these guys wait until our full staff is hired and they've had time to have a lengthy discussion with Jackson.

    This would be KILLER! I watched him a lot in HS and he is an animal and one of my fav recruits ever. Can't wait to see him in the starting LU and winning national championships for ISU.

    Re: Defection thread.

    Again, I ask: Why does Cael need to take any ISU recruits, since he thinks the best wrestling talent comes from Pennsylvania?

    Re: Defection thread.

    Cael has openly told, at least the upperclassmen, to stay. All seniors (except cyler) are going to stay for sure.

    The ones that I am not sure on right now are Brown (who will be going on a year long mormon mission trip next year anyway), Valles, Long (who I assume will stay if his brother does) and maybe a few other underclassmen. I heard Simonson is thinking about leaving to go start somewhere else ala Mark Kist who was very successful this year at wartburg.

    Are grades an issue with ET?

    I know it's been speculated.

    That is why I always had KJ in my top 5. We want those top recruits who view college wrestling as their natural progression towards international freestyle competition. Jackson should keep ISU in the conversation with a lot of top recruits if he can push a strong off-season freestyle program.

    The more I think of this hire, the better I feel about it. Any word on involvement by Bobby D, or other assistants?
