Iowa Wrestling recruit Jesse Ybarra competed in a match as part of the NWCA All-Star meet in Denver, Colorado on November 2. Ybarra, ranked #13 in the country at 126 lbs., defeated #6 ranked Dominick Serrano of Colorado, 5-3, SV-1.
Ybarra has now had two great performances in All-Star meets recently. He was named The Open Mat (TOM) High School Wrestler of the Week for the week of October 22 from defeating two nationally ranked wrestlers at The Agony in Ames.
Ybarra is already a two-time state champion winning titles at 106 as a freshman and at 113 last season. Ybarra won the Cadet Freestyle Pan American Championships Trials in Freestyle last spring at 55 kg/121 lbs. Ybarra really arrived on the national scene by winning a Cadet national title at 120 lbs. in Fargo this past summer.
Ybarra, from Tucson, Arizona (Sunnyside HS), gave a verbal commitment to the University of Iowa on September 27 and is a member of the Iowa Wrestling Recruiting Class of 2020.
It is great to be an Iowa Wrestling fan.
