Cruz was an undefeated state champ as a senior and placed third as a freshman and second as a sophomore. California did not have a state tournament in 2021.
Cruz has been an elite wrestler throughout his high school career and has an impressive resume. Cruz is being projected as a career 125 lbs. wrestler and has a lot of potential as an Iowa Hawkeye.
It is great to be an Iowa Wrestling fan.
