Aaron Cashman Commits To Iowa

null

One of the last two unsigned seniors has made his college decision. Earlier today, Aaron Cashman committed to wrestle for Iowa in college. His decision came down to Iowa and Ohio State.

The senior from Minnesota was No. 80 on the final Class of 2018 Big Board. He did not appear in the final weight class rankings because he spent this year living at the Olympic Training Center in USA Wrestling's Elite Accelerator Program in Colorado Springs, CO.

We had him rated as the eighth-best 133-pound prospect, which is where Cashman projects himself for the black and gold. It's unlikely he grows as big as 141, but the projected Hawkeyes starters have a combined 10 years of eligibility remaining between the first three weight classes.

Cashman told FloWrestling the following about his decision:

"I chose the Hawkeyes because of the partners and coaches. Can't get much better than wrestling with Spencer Lee, and Tom and Terry as my coaches."

Cashman, a former Cadet world team member, wrestled in three college Opens this season. He went 4-2 at the Cowboy Open and placed sixth at the Northern Colorado Open in November, as well as a fifth-place finish at the Wilkes Open in December. He also won the Flatz Open in Austria in February.

All of the college Opens were at 125 and the Flatz Open was at 57kg. Cashman also competed at 57kg for the U.S. Open and Junior Trials, placing fourth in the WTT challenge tournament.

For the first two years of his high school career, he placed fourth and second at 106 in big school Minnesota for Mound-Westonka. In his final high school season, he went 39-1 for Shakopee and won an AAA state title.

Watch Cashman tech NCAA qualifier Rayvon Foley in the consi semis of WTT.
