Live This Week On Flo: Feb. 24/25 - National Preps | Feb. 24/25 - NJCAA National Championships | Feb. 26 - National Collegiate Open
It was quite a weekend for Iowa City West wrestler Nelson Brands. After winning his second 3A state title on Saturday night, the junior verbally committed to wrestle for the Iowa Hawkeyes on Monday.
It may come to no surprise that I have decided to continue my wrestling career at the University of Iowa. Go Hawks! pic.twitter.com/HypbzYX17L— Nelson Brands (@nelsonrbrands) February 21, 2017
Brands is currently ranked 19th at 152 pounds and is considered one of the best takedown artists in his state. He is 108-4 over the last two years for the ICW Trojans.
Although Brands is the son of Iowa associate head coach Terry Brands, it wasn't a guarantee he would stay in Iowa City. He was also looking at Nebraska and North Carolina.
