CMU Recruiting Haul

By MI Grappler, 05/11/18, 12:30PM EDT


The Chippewas currently have six wrestlers signed in the Class of 2018, five of whom are from Michigan.  Among the incoming recruits, four are listed in the top-21 seniors in Michigan.  The most fitting word to use with this group is "upside," in which several of the newcomers have potential to make major gains over the course of their career- a hallmark of the CMU program.  That being said, the class features five state champs (two 2xers) and a three-time finalist.

Look for next year's group to feature some middleweights (141-174) as they'll need to bulk up the depth in those weights.  In the meantime, expect some of the young talent they have to break out and become formidable starters for the Maroon and Gold.
