It was huge news when Brentli Reyna of South Dade High School in Homestead, Florida committed to the Hawks on October 29.  Reyna was already being recruited by Iowa when he went on a tear this fall. In early October Reyna defeated two nationally ranked wrestlers while winning a tournament in Michigan.  

It was his performance at Super 32s that really saw Reyna shoot up the recruiting ranks. In winning Super 32s, Reyna defeated three top ten wrestlers including the top ranked wrestler in the country.  That is having a tournament. Reyna will be looking for his fourth state title this year. South Dade High School also sent us current Hawkeye All Americn Patricio Lugo.

The top competition for Reyna this season will be at the always tough Best of the East in December and Virginia Duals in January.  Reyna is a member of the outstanding Iowa Wrestling Recruiting Class of 2020 and is projected at 149/157 for the Hawks.

I will bring you a blog every Friday during the season to let you know where our recruits will be competing and a follow-up blog with results.
