Trying to deny Figueroa of history is Drake Ayala of Iowa. Not only does Ayala have two Iowa high school state titles to his name, but he's won two Fargo titles as well. The University of Iowa commit is currently ranked #2 at 120 and #6 overall in the class of 2021. Ayala has one of the highest paces of any high school wrestler in the country and is known for lighting up the scoreboard.

Watch Ayala beat Cornell commit Nico Provo in the 2019 Fargo finals.

Figueroa is the top-ranked recruit in the class of 2021 and the #1 pound-for-pound high school wrestler in the country for a reason. The Arizona State commit is a three-time California state champion, Cadet world silver medalist, Super 32, and FloNationals champion. Figueroa has great offense on his feet, is an incredible scrambler, and his best position might be on top where he's a near fall scoring and pinning machine with legs in. 

Watch Figueroa beat the #1 ranked wrestler at 113, Joey Cruz, in the Doc Buchanan finals.
