I don't know if he's competed at Fargo since, but he was a Cadet runner-up in 2018 at 94 pounds. Quick Google search shows that the Predicament had him as registered for this year, but Flo does not show him having competed.

The list of Cadet finalists in 2018 is...impressive.

There is a lot of tradition there. I recall Crestwood of Cresco scoring points at state in the 1970s.

Longtime ISU head coach Harold Nichols was from Cresco. He went on to wrestle at Michigan. Former UI head coach Gary Kurdlemeier was from Cresco and wrestled at UI. When Gable left ISU -- where Nichols was his coach, for UI, he was an assistant for Kurdlemeier, and later replaced him as the head coach.

Before them, future Nobel Peace Prize winner and leader of the green revolution, Norman Borlaug, was from Cresco, and went on to wrestle at the University of Minnesota.

… Fousek has been in and out of MatScouts' national rankings and big boards throughout his high school career, though he is not currently included in either of the latest iterations. Still, he is a high-upside lightweight prospect, and his commitment is a good in-state recruiting victory for the Cyclones.

Fousek is the third-known commitment for Iowa State's 2022 class. He joins two high-end Michigan stars, Manny Rojas and Casey Swiderski. Rojas is considered the No. 21 overall 2022 recruit, according to MatScouts, while Swiderski is ranked No. 27 overall. Both will compete at FloWrestling's Who's Number One event later this month. ...
