The son of World champion and Olympic silver medalist Sammie Henson, Wyatt was born to wrestle. His phenomenal double leg has helped him get victories over the likes of UNC sophomore Gabe Tagg,  #3 at 138 Jesse Mendez, now Virginia freshman Patrick Noonan, #4 at 145 Caleb Henson, #9 at 145 Daniel Cardenas, Army freshman Kenny Kiser, four-time Minnesota state champ Reid Ballantyne, and many more.

A Missouri native now wrestling for Waynesburg High School in Pennsylvania, Henson is committed to wrestle for Coach Brands and the Iowa Hawkeyes after completing his high school career this season.

While Henson is the actual Iowa commit in this match, Iowa fans will love Cody Chittum as well. The Tennessee native is just a sophomore, but already has some HEAVY hands and a gas tank to match. He sits at #3 on the Class of 2023 Big Board, and should be on every major college coach's want list.

Watch Chittum make the 2019 Fargo semis over Pennsylvania’s Jake Jones below.

Representing Blair Academy, Chittum made the National Prep finals last season as a freshman. Two years ago, as an eighth-grader, Chittum won the Nuway College Open. After defeating an NAIA All-American 9-1, Chittum earned a 16-1 tech fall in the finals… of a college open… as an eighth grader. He is more than ready to compete at the highest level.
