Wrestling gets good news on Earl Hall

The following is a press release courtesy of Iowa State athletics communications. 

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State two-time All-American wrestler Earl Hall has been granted another year of eligibility by the NCAA, the Iowa State Athletics Department announced today.

Hall has wrestled three years for the Cyclones, earning All-America status in 2014 and 2016. Hall competed at the Olympic Training Center in his first season out of high school in 2012-13.

Hall enrolled at Iowa State in 2013-14 as a sophomore. The NCAA waived its initial decision and will allow Hall to compete in his fourth and final year as a Cyclone in 2016-17.

“He’s back,” Iowa State head coach Kevin Jackson said. “Having three returning All-Americans on your team is a good thing. We are thrilled for Earl and we expect him to capitalize on this opportunity.”

Hall is a three-time NCAA qualifier and was the Big 12 runner-up at 133 pounds in 2015. He finished eighth at 125 pounds and seventh at 133 pounds at the 2014 and 2016 NCAA Championships, respectively.

With the return of Hall, the Cyclones will boast three All-Americans in the wrestling room. Senior Lelund Weatherspoon (174 pounds) and junior Patrick Downey (197 pounds) both earned All-America honors at the 2016 NCAA Championship.
