Geordan Speiller (Pine Castle Christian, Fla.), one of the nation's top seniors, won't be seen on a college campus for at least another year. Speiller will be taking a greyshirt season to focus on Greco-Roman.
"My plans are to take a greyshirt year and compete on the international level," said Speiller, who finished this past season ranked No. 4 nationally at 170 pounds by InterMat. "Being that this is a Olympic year most of your veteran seniors won't be competing internationally after the Olympics. So I felt this would be a good year to transition into the senior level. I will be training between the OTC in Colorado Springs and the Southeast Regional Training Center in Orlando. I plan on attending college fall of 2013."
Speiller compiled a 41-1 record this past season en route to winning his third state championship. He won a FILA Junior Nationals Greco-Roman title this spring, and will attempt to make the Junior World Team this year. Speiller was also a Junior National Greco-Roman champion last summer in Fargo.
