Nine Husker wrestlers earned spots on the Academic All-Big Ten list after the conference announced its honorees on Wednesday. In order to earn Academic All-Big Ten accolades, a student-athlete must be a letterwinner in at least their second year of competition and carry a cumulative 3.0 or higher GPA.

Seniors Josh Ihnen and Ross Grande each took home their second Academic All-Big Ten award, earning the accolade in Nebraska’s first season as a member of the conference in 2012 as well. Ihnen, a finance major, adds this honor to his already impressive resume which includes CoSIDA Second-Team Academic All-America, Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and three-time NWCA All-Academic Team accolades.

Grande was also a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar in 2012 and a first-team Academic All-Big 12 member in 2011. Fellow senior Michael Klinginsmith picked up his first Academic All-Big Ten honor in 2013. He was a 2012 NWCA All-Academic Team member and held a perfect 4.0 grade-point average in 2010 and 2011.

Junior Shawn Nagel as well as sophomores John Svoboda and Skylar Galloway each earned their second honor. Nagel is a two-time member of the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll and claimed a spot on the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll twice. Svoboda has been named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll and Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll a combined three times, holding a perfect 4.0 GPA in the spring semester of 2011. Galloway has held spots on the honor rolls four times and earned NWCA All-Academic Team honors in 2012.

Spencer Johnson, Ian Ousley and Austin Wilson were named to the list for the first time. A full list of Nebraska’s Academic All-Big Ten honorees can be downloaded above.
