Iowa State Wrestling gets commitment from twin brother wrestlers from Dowling Catholic

Evan and Jacob Frost announced on Sunday afternoon they’d be flipping their commitment to the Iowa State Wrestling program.

The twins had originally committed to Ivy League Columbia University.

Evan is ranked No. 206 overall and Jacob is ranked No. 224 overall, via MatScouts.

Originally from Louisiana, the twin brothers moved to Iowa to attend Dowling Catholic for the 2021-22 school year.

Some career highlights for the twin brothers:

Evan Frost:
– 34-1 overall in 2021-22 season
– State title at 132 pounds
– Junior Freestyle Champion (132 pounds)
– 3x State Champion at Holy Cross High School in Louisiana

Jacob Frost:
– 32-2 overall in 2021-22 season
– reached the state finals at 138
– Junior Freestyle Champion (138 pounds)
– 3x State Champion at Holy Cross High School in Louisiana

When deciding to make the big move ahead of their senior year, Jacob told the Crescent City Sports the decision didn’t come easy.

“We decided we should go up there to take advantage of the opportunity. It was not an easy decision leaving our hometown and school, but we thought it would help us reach our goals.”

Evan is projected at 133 pounds and Jacob is projected at 141 pounds. They’ll join the Cyclones’ No. 2 ranked 2022 recruiting class according to MatScouts.
