From Illinois to Iowa. 

During a commitment ceremony at his high school, two-time Illinois state champion Jacob Warner announced that he will be continuing his wrestling career at the University of Iowa. 

Warner is currently the No. 1-ranked 195-pound wrestler in the country and occupies the No. 8 spot on the Class of 2017 Big Board. This summer, Warner won a bronze medal at the Cadet World Championships in Tbilisi, Georgia, and will now look to add to his already impressive resume, which features a career record of 137-10. Warner projects as a 197 for his career.  This weight is a need for the Hawkeyes in the wake of two-time All-American Nathan Burak's graduation.

The class of 2017 is shaping up to be a dandy for the Hawkeyes, who have already earned commitments from pound-for-pound No. 1 Spencer Lee, No. 7 Max Murin, No. 12 Aaron Costello, No. 17 Myles Wilson, No. 14 Luke Troy, and Justin Stickley.  

Warner chose Iowa over Minnesota, Ohio State, Purdue, and Arizona State.

Watch Warner dominate his way to a bronze medal at the Cadet World Championships:
