    Iowa Central has another awesome 125 pounder in Joe Colon. He won the National Title this year. Had two Falls, a tech fall and a major in the national Championships.

    If you look at it, the state of Iowa is pretty loaded at 125 pounds. McDonough was National Champ from Iowa, with Long from ISU the runner-up in Division I. Tyler Mumbulu from Upper Iowa was National Runner-up in Division II and Coe's Clayton Rush was national Champion at Division III. Rush's only two losses this year were to Colon and McDonough as well.

    I wonder if we'll look to go after Colon as well, although I don't know how hold he is.

    Kinda baffling WI can't get in him in but we can.

    I'm not expecting much because I don't think the JC competition is real tough at that weight, and he got owned by Iowa's backup last season, but he will be better than anyone else we have (save Finch). It makes us better so I'm all for it!

    He couldn't get into WI so he went JUCO. Now his academics are cleaned up.

    Not according to the article:

    A former New Jersey state placer and National Prep Runner-Up for St. Benedict’s’, Hunter was a hot commodity this summer. He originally was courted, and signed, by Coach Barry Davis and Wisconsin. Due to transcript discrepancies and entrance requirements, Hunter was unable to enroll there.

    Wisconsin is very good academically--better than ISU.

    Nope. Was supposed to go to WI this fall, after JC.
