One of the most dynamic and, because of geography, enigmatic, high school super stars, ended speculation late saturday night as Isaiah Martinez veraballed to Illinois.
Martinez projects as a 157lber and gets a bit less press and exposure due to being on the west coast, but he doesn't escape the eyes of scouts. Flowrestling has him as the #6 overall recruit in the class of 2013 and the #8 pound-for-pound wrestler in the country.
Martinez' legend started early on. Cali folks said this guy was the next big thing.
And they weren't wrong.
From Lemoore, CA, Martinez won a Fargo title two years ago, then won high school's ultimate prize this summer: a Fargo JR Freestyle crown. In between, he won golds here, there, and everywhere, making him one of the most coveted prospects in the country. His wild athleticism is a sight to behold.
Congrats to the Illini, the Lemoore and California Wrestling communities.
