There's been a quick turnaround in Jaydin Eierman’s transfer process as the three-time All-American will be going to Iowa.
Just a day after entering the transfer portal, Eierman announced on his social media he'll finish his final season of eligibility in Iowa City. After completing his Olympic Redshirt year, he'll be a Hawkeye for the 2020-21 season.
It represents a massive domino in the team race next year. Eierman could either slide in at 141 or 149, depending upon the needs of the Hawkeyes. Pat Lugo is graduating, but one of Max Murin, Austin DeSanto, or Gavin Teasdale could likely be the 141, so right now it seems most possible he winds up going up a weight class.
As he mentioned in his interview with our own Mark Bader, though, this decision was based more on his desire to have a top-notch RTC and training partners for his senior-level freestyle career. The move indicates Eierman will be training at the Hawkeye Wrestling Club for the next quad through the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
