Did They Accidentally Announce Spencer Lee's Iowa Debut?


The Iowa wrestling team shared its latest "move of the week" in a Twitter post on Monday, and the Hawkeyes may have hinted at a massive early-season change to their lineup in the process.

As you can see, the reporter seems to indicate Spencer Lee's redshirt will be pulled, but Lee walks it back.

This possibility was discussed at length on FRL 244, and we know he weighed in for the Iowa City Duals but did not wrestle.

It is essentially unheard of for the Iowa coaching staff under Tom Brands to wrestle true freshmen, but this year may be an exception. We already saw Jacob Warner beat No. 3 Willie Miklus, and it seems pretty obvious Lee would be an upgrade over either Perez Perez or Justin Stickley at 125.

We won't know for sure until Friday night at 7 CT against Rider.

Tech Notes: Travis Wittlake vs Trent Hidlay

Travis Wittlake and Trent Hidlay are due to wrestle at the PWC this Sunday. The two haven’t been in the same circle together since Fargo back in 2015 where Wittlake won by tech 11-0. But before you start jumping to conclusions you should know that they wrestled Greco and that most of the techniques that Wittlake used to score do not translate to a folk style setting (front head lock roll throughs and step-outs). We haven’t seen Wittlake in a national level competition since Akron. He suffered an ankle injury at the National Duals. So we’ll see if there is any rust that needs to be knocked off.
