Iowa Wrestling has two top recruits coming in from Waverly-Shell Rock. When you have talent like Aiden Riggins and Ryder Block in your state you have to keep them home. The Hawks did just that. Riggins has already signed his National Letter of Intent for the Class of 2022 and Block is in the Class of 2023.

Riggins looks ready to go for college right now. I feel as though Block is underrated nationally and also has a lot of potential for Iowa Wrestling. 

The Cedar Valley has been producing talented wrestlers for generations. It is great to see my home state of Iowa producing Division I talent like Riggins and Block once again. The foundation of Iowa Wrestling has always been recruits from Iowa.

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.
