Wrestling Recruits Tabbed Fourth in Nation
Lincoln – Nebraska wrestling's 2009-10 recruiting class continued to garner honors on Tuesday, as renowned wrestling source InterMat ranked the Huskers’ incoming class fourth in the nation. The website tabbed Oklahoma State with the best class, while Minnesota was second and Oklahoma was third.
InterMat ranked five future NU wrestlers in its top 100 recruits for the season, including Caleb Kolb (Grove City, Pa.) at No. 20 and David Klingsheim (Brentwood, Calif.) at No. 27. C.J. Napier (Columbus, Kan.) and Cody Compton (Bonne Terre, Mo.) claimed No. 41 and 70, respectively, after both earned championships at the National High School Coaches Association Senior Nationals in early April. Kyle Waldo (Rockford, Mich.) rounded out the ranked Huskers at No. 75, as all five wrestlers earned state titles during their senior year. OSU was the only other school to claim as many top-100 recruits.
NU’s 2009-10 class has now been ranked in the top four in the nation by four separate services (InterMat, WIN Magazine, D1collegewrestling.net and Theopenmat.com), while Amateur Wrestling News will release its rankings later this summer. The Huskers begin their season with the Red-White Intrasquad on Nov. 6, before hosting their first dual on Nov. 15 against Wisconsin.
