    Jackson Announces Iowa State Wrestling Signees

    AMES, Iowa Iowa State wrestling head coach Kevin Jackson has announced the signing of eight prep wrestlers for the 2010-11 season. An influx of talent is set to join the Cyclones for their next campaign.

    I don't know that it's a hotbed, but didn't KJ come from Arizona? I think the training center he worked at was based there. I'm sure he got a very good look at the local talent

    I would think it is pretty good. Probably a top 10 state? I think KJ probably has some good contacts, so that helps.

    Moreno's dad wrestled for Iowa State, and he is rated the #22 recruit in the country. Credit to Coach Jackson, it had to be difficult to keep the interest of some recruits after Sanderson left.

    I'm too lazy to look up the recruiting class rankings, but I believe that counting Iowa State, those are the top 5 recruiting classes.

    Re: Jackson Announces Iowa State Wrestling Signees

    Right now the top classes are probably between Iowa, Cornell and Penn St.

    Iowa signed 7 guys in the top 100 recruits.
    Cornell signed 3 guys in the top 50
    Penn St signed 4 guys in the top 47 3 in the top 16
    Northwestern signed 6 guys in the top 100.
    Ohio St signed 3 guys in the top 44
    Minny has 3 in the top 66
    ISU 4 guys in the top 70
    Cal Poly 4 guys in the top 93
    AZ State 3 guys in the top 82...

    Iowa probably has top as everyone of their guys are in the top 100, but there is a lot of parity this yr in recruiting, I think our guys are pretty good, its good to see us sign more guys from iowa then Iowa this year 5 to 3...Hopefully we can coach up some of the unranked guys and make them into studs....But as we've seen in the past just because you aren't ranked in the top 100 doesn't mean they aren't good...We got a solid class that address's a lot of our needs since we have such a senior laden squad this year...I have all the faith in KJ!!

    here is a link to all the signings so far.

    It helps when you sign twin brothers that are ranked #2 and #5 in the nation.
