WRESTLING: Dresser lands two in-state commits

The momentum behind Kevin Dresser’s new-look Iowa State wrestling program continues to build.

This week, Iowa State’s new head coach landed a pair commitment from two of the top prospects in the state of Iowa.

According to his Twitter feed, Joel Shapiro from West Des Moines Valley is now a Cyclone. Shapiro, a 160-pound grappler, won the state’s 3A state championship in 2017.

According to iawrestle.com, Shapiro projects as 184-pounder at Iowa State. The wrestling site also referred to this as a “needed weight” for the Cyclones.

Shapiro joined Fort Dodge prospect Cayd Lara, who committed to Iowa State on Monday. Lara, who finished second in the 2017 state tournament, projects to compete at 157-pound for the Cyclones, according to iawrestle.com.
