Southeast Polk High School in Pleasant Hill, Iowa is sending us four Hawkeyes. Nate Jesuroga committed early on the huge recruiting weekend of October 9-10 that really started the momentum that followed. Of all the recruits that Iowa has coming in, Nate Jesuroga was and still is my #1 pick. Jesuroga is ranked #1 at 120 lbs. in the country and #3 P4P by Willie Saylor of MatScouts.

Nate is in the Class of 2023. Joel Jesuroga, Carter Martinson, and Cole Martinson are in the Class of 2022 and have all signed their National Letter of Intent. 

Every year I post a schedule and a weekly preview on Friday about where our recruits will be competing. I have people contact me that went to see a future Hawk compete because of this. I know of fans that have traveled a fair distance to watch an incoming Iowa wrestler compete. 

Other fans like following along online and watching matches on the internet when possible. Iowa Wrestling fans take a huge interest in our incoming recruits. These are all reasons why I do this. 

We have a lot to follow this season with 13 incoming recruits competing all across the country. I will do my best to bring you results this season for all of our incoming recruits right here on my blog. 

The future looks great for Iowa Wrestling.
