Richmond's McKiernan to SIUE

By MI Grappler, 08/31/20, 10:15PM EDT


A familiar headline - McKiernan to SIUE.  Richmond senior Dan McKiernan has committed to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, following older brothers Jake, who competed for the Cougars from 2014-19, and Colton, who currently competes for them and was an NCAA qualifier as a freshman.

The Blue Devil will enter his final year as a top heavyweight prospect in the state and a favorite to contend for a state title in D3 after placing 5th as junior.  He also qualified for the state tournament as a sophomore.

McKiernan will project as a heavyweight for SIUE and is a top-75 senior in the state.  Along with his brother, he'll join Brighton-grad Nick Bleise in Edwardsville.
