Cornell Wrestling Adds Three Massive West Coast Recruits To Class Of 2025

Cornell Wrestling just added three massive pieces to its 2025 recruiting class. Gilroy California's Isaiah and Elijah Cortez will be headed to Ithaca along with Sunnyside, Arizona's Sergio Vega. Isaiah and Elijah Cortez are ranked #16 and #38 in their class, and Vega is ranked #12.

The Cortez brothers won state titles at 120 lbs and 126 lbs in the ultra-tough single-class California State Championships last season and followed that up top 5 finishes at 55 kg in the U17 World Team Trials.

After a 4th place finish at Fargo this summer, Sergio Vega followed that up with a runner-up performance at Super 32 that included an upset victory over former #1 ranked 132-pounder Ben Davino. Vega's victory moved him from #23 to #12 in the class of 2025.
