    Kyven Gadson commits

    Woo hoo! Kyven Gadson, a state champion at 171 last year from Waterloo East, and the son of former Cyclone All-American Willie Gadson, committed to the good guys. Congratulations Kyven!

    Kyven gives an excellent interview where he discusses his commitment, the Cyclones and his college wrestling plans:
    TWT Wrestling & MMA Social Network

    Though you may have to register to hear it, I'm glad I did. A lot of information there. He has always been a Cyclone fan.

    The Waterloo Courier in February 2008 had an excellent article about Waterloo East, and their improvement since Willie Gadson became coach:

    In 2009 East finished 8th at state, and not too far from finishing as high as 5th:

    Yes.

    In the interview, he says he will almost certainly redshirt, and that he is young for his class (July birthday, he just turned 17).

    I followed Willie Gadson when I was in high school, more than 30 years ago. Ironically, working out I met him several years ago in Iowa City, at the UI Fieldhouse, of all places. Willie was an assistant at IC West (maybe it was City High), and I think his wife was working on her PhD. In a short time amount of time we talked about a lot, including the Cyclones, diet, wrestling style, and coaching philosophy. I shared with him my own experiences. It is interesting to hear Kyven relate some of the same things we talked about. It is amazing how much we discussed in such a short amount of time.

    I believe his final 4 were Iowa, WI, UNI and ISU. Iowa offered him before Nationals last year.

    He was at the Cyclone Tailgate Tour in Waterloo, and people were asking him where he was going to go, and he said not the Hawkeyes for sure, glad to have another Cyclone

    The old man was a punishing wrestler. If his is anything like his dad, we have a great recruit.
