A squad of Americans traveled to the Ex-Soviet Union over the weekend to participate in the prestigious Alexander Medved Prizes in Minsk, Belarus. Team USA brought home five medals, including a gold medal from Nate Jackson, which is only the fourth American Medved title in six years. 

Jackson dispatched Uzbekistan's Javrail Shapiev, ranked #17 in the world, in the finals by the score of 7 to 4.

USA's 61kg freestyle senior world team member and Jackson's teammate at the NJ-RTC, Tyler Graff, picked up a bronze medal in a tough weight class that was won by #8, Artem Gebekov of Russia. Gebekov beat Graff in the first round, sending Graff to the repechage where he had to win two matches to make the podium.

The heavyweight bracket saw the Americans scoop up two medals, as Gable Steveson earned a silver, dropping a finals match to Khasanboy Rakhimov of Uzbekistan. Rakhimov also beat Steveson at the 2018 Junior World Championships. 

Jordan Wood lost to Steveson in the semis before a victorious bronze medal match to close out his tournament. 

Ty Walz won the fifth and final medal for the Americans. He made the finals at 97kg before getting stopped by 2016 Olympic bronze medalist, Albert Saritov of Romania. Saritov also beat Kyven Gadson in the semis.

James Green, the US 70kg rep for the Nur-Sultan Worlds, was beaten by another Rio bronze medalist, Ikhtiyor Navruzov of Uzbekistan. Navruzov also beat Ryan Deakin before himself losing in the semifinals, ending the tournament for both Green and Deakin.

For about a decade, the words “Penn State” and “underdog” didn’t belong in the same sentence — maybe not even the same page. Cael Sanderson’s squad brought the crown home to State College eight times since the inception of the last decade, with only Iowa (2010) and Ohio State (2015) disrupting their reign of terror.

College recruiting is a fascinating industry and often it isn't so much about selling new prospects on your program but making sure the wrestlers already verbally committed actually sign their National Letter of Intent. With three wrestlers ranked in the top 31 of the class of 2021 currently verbally committed, I believe that is mainly what the Iowa Hawkeyes will be focusing on leading up to signing day.
