#14 Caleb Rathjen Commits To Iowa

Caleb Rathjen is the latest in a string of middleweight commitments for the Hawkeyes these past few weeks as the junior verballed to Iowa today.

Rathjen is one of the top juniors in the state, and is our top-ranked 138 pounder in class 3A. He was a state champ for Ankeny this past season, going 41-1 on the year.

A 2018 Fargo finalist, Rathjen projects as a 149/157 for the Black & Gold. Also committing to the Hawkeyes in recent weeks from the class of 2021 are Cam Lucero of Colorado and #7 Wyatt Henson of Missouri.

The in-state prep could be the answer to who replaces Kaleb Young after he graduates. If he doesn't end up growing much, he'd be a guy to follow after Austin DeSanto or Gavin Teasdale.

What 2 Watch 4: Drinking From The Firehose

null

We must prepare ourselves for the third weekend of NCAA wrestling, as things are about to get serious. A favorite metaphor of mine that pertains to trying to do or consume more than is reasonable in any given amount of time is to 'drink from the firehose'. It gets tossed out during things like freshman orientation or during your first week at a new job. I just like because it gives me a chance to post this sublime clip from the hilarious 1989 cult classic 'UHF'.
