CMU 2019 Recruits and Outlook

By MI Grappler, 06/13/19, 11:00AM EDT


The Chippewas will bring in six freshman this fall from four different states.  Michigan natives Ryan Ringler, Vince Perez, and Cade Dallwitz all inked with the Chips and all were D2 state finalists; Ringler won a pair of titles and Perez was a 2019 state champ.  Hunter Watts will join them from Indiana, a four-time placer and state champ in a single-division state.  Johnny Lovett of Florida is another solid pickup - he was 3rd at Seniors and 4th at Super 32.  

Coach Borrelli's team is still in a rebuilding phase but they have plenty to be excited about with a young crop of talent and only one senior in this year's class.  Nearly the entire lineup will return, most of them for multiple years, so that will be very beneficial moving forward.  Leading the way will be All-American Matt Stencel and National Qualifiers Drew Hildebrandt and Logan Parks.  Look for them to seek out 125, 157, 197 and 285 projected wrestlers in the Class of 2020.
