When Clovis High School's Justin Mejia committed early to Iowa, he looked like a great option for Iowa to continue their tradition of incredible lightweights. For reasons unknown—but likely involving the commitment of the No. 1 pound-for-pound wrestler in the country, Spencer Lee—Mejia has decommitted from Iowa.
Mejia sent out the following tweet this evening:
The three-time California state champion comes in as the No. 23 overall recruit for the class of 2017. He currently is ranked No. 3 at 126 pounds.
I love Iowa but sometimes things don't workout I have nothing bad to say about Iowa love everything about it sad to say it didn't workout— J-izzo (@jmejia106) July 6, 2016
