Midwest Elite Recruiting Combine is BACK

By MI Grappler, 09/01/21, 8:30AM EDT


Michigan Grappler is excited to partner with Adidas Wrestling to host our 2nd elite wrestling college combine next fall.  The combine will be held on Saturday, September 18th at Detroit Catholic Central High School.  The event is open to 9th-12th graders, based on Fall '21 grade.  Registration will run through September 11th and will be $150.   

Why a Combine:  It is a chance to showcase talent to dozens of college coaches through wrestling and physical testing.  Often times wrestlers are overlooked at tournaments or just simply off of a coach's radar.  A combine provides the opportunity to get in front of a coach and prove why you may be an asset to their team.  

Athletes:  Each wrestler will receive Adidas performance T-shirts color coded by grade.  Wrestler profiles will be given to each coach in attendance, which contain personal, academic, athletic, and contact information.  Awards will be given to the winners of the physical testing events (Mile Run, Bodyweight Bench, Pull-Ups).  The combine will also name a lower weight and upper weight MVP.

Coaches: Will be able to watch and evaluate talent from hundreds of athletes.  Each coach will be sent a digital profile of each of the participating wrestlers consisting of athletic, academic, and personal information prior to attendance.  A hard copy compilation will be given upon arrival.  After the completion of the event, we will send results of the physical testing as well.
