    I thought he followed Bono to Wisconsin. I guess he changed his mind?

      Connor wrestled at Wisconsin for part of the season and left the team. He is now back home and on the roster for the Tigers.

        He did but left after competing in 14 matches (11-3). I believe he left right after the first semester.

          Dan Stiebral, Tyler Waterson, and now Cooper Voorhees and Kylen March would be some DI people off the top of my head that would fit the bill. Colby Kost, Clayton Walstrom, Wyatt Turnquist, Tanner Brengle, Brandon Carroll, and Lincoln Turman have done well at the DII level and would be useful to have in the room.

          More impressive to me is the list of people who didn't go on to wrestle who we possible could have snagged: Alex Aesoph, Chase Sigdestad, Barrett Wren, Cooper Baloun, William Turman, Spencer Stockman, Michael Lusk, Trey Hage, Donte Colicheski, Logan Warzecha, Andrew Sorenson, Peyton Smith, Dylan Hanisch, Eddie Miller, Spencer Sarringer, John Lemer, and Ryley Ostbye are some names that I came up with though I haven't done a ton of research on all of them.
          So I think we've come to an agreement that this staff, and really the staff before, did a pretty good job of recruiting and providing opportunities for D1 level SD wrestlers. I'd agree with you when you say that 9 wrestlers on our current roster is a pretty good number, and i'd love to see a couple of those SD wrestlers or future SD wrestlers break through into the starting lineup. However, if that doesn't happen, I'm going to be just as excited about our 10 starters from other states that put that SD on their chest.

          Additionally, I think it's been shown that the amount of SD wrestlers who are D1 level wrestlers is pretty small. The fact that we could really only identify four SD wrestlers in the past five years who are having success at other programs (and really only two, as two of those four are still HS seniors and haven't proven they are going to have any success at the college level yet), shows that the pool to recruit from in SD is small. Combine that with the fact that MN, IA, and other neighboring states produce many many more D1 level wrestlers, and I'd say that our focus - identifying the few in SD who can contribute, and recruiting heavily in neighboring states with more history of success - is right on point.

          Just to close the conversation -

          I do think Stribal could have been successful at SDSU and he would have been at a weight of need the past 5 years. However, our current heavyweight Blake Wolters, from just 35 minutes down the road from Brookings and much closer than Stribal's hometown, albeit across the MN border, defeated Stribal earlier this year.

          Tyler Waterson has left the MN program from what I've gathered. And I'm not sure that he'd be a better option than either Clay Carlson at 141 (Clay's record against common opponents is much better, and Clay is a year younger) or Henry P or Hunter Marko at 149.

          So I'm not sure that either of those two would be better options than the current Jackrabbits we have in their starting roles.

          I would have loved to have Kellyn March select SDSU in order to see his NCAA career unfold in a JACKRABBIT singlet vs. a Bison. I'm confident the staff recruited him and he had the option to choose to stay in state. There may have been connections now at NDSU that made that choice more appealing for him or maybe he just liked NDSU or Fargo better - difficult to say.

          Not sure if Voorhees was a focus of the current SDSU staff or not...when it all comes down to it, he chose to stay closer to home (although not in state) by choosing Wyoming.

                Things of note from surrounding state tournaments:

                My favorite North Dakota wrestler Garrett Jangula wrapped up his high school career with an undefeated season. He's only had four matches not end in a fall this year. If we don't get him, I hope he goes somewhere. It would be a huge waste of talent for him to hang it up after high school. He's now a four timer and he hasn't lost a match since freshman year.
                A kid named Clay Gerhardt won his forth consecutive North Dakota state B title taking the title at 132 with an undefeated season, he also has a little brother who won 106 as a 9th grader. He has no college plans that I've been able to find. He would be a good get if we can bring him in for cheap.
                There are a couple of twins in Iowa by the name of Tenold who finished runner up at 160 and 170 respectively as sophomores. I would love for them to be jackrabbits.
                There are a few other Iowa sophomores who look to have a lot of potential at weights where we will be in need. (This year and next year have got to be pretty well wrapped up in terms of major commits). Mickey Griffith won it at 170, Griffen Gambral took 3rd at 182, Wyatt Voelker took 3rd at 195, Nick Hamilton won at 145, and Hayden Taylor also won at 145.
                Current recruit Jack Thomsen took third after a UTB match with Hayden Taylor in the semi-finals. A bit of a let down for him after winning state the last two years. He also took a loss in districts.
                2022 recruit Bailey Roybal won state at 113. His only loss of the year was to Blake West of Shakopee, MN who is a stud. Good on Cody for finding this kid and signing him before he gets on the radar of other teams. There was nothing in his results that indicated that he would be anything special at the time of his signing, but he turned into something this year.

                South Dakota and Minnesota have their state tournaments this coming weekend. I'm sure that the whole staff will be hard at work scouting these out.
