No. 30 Happel a third top 100 commit for Iowa in 2016 class
Three-time state champion Carter Happel (Lisbon, Iowa), the highest rated Hawkeye State native at No. 30 overall in the Class of 2016, verbally committed to the University of Iowa on Tuesday evening. Happel has an excellent resume in freestyle, finishing fifth this summer at the Junior Nationals in the 138 pound weight class, competing on the UWW Cadet World team last summer at 58 kilograms, and winning a Cadet freestyle title in the summer of 2013 at 132 pounds. The projected 141 in college joins No. 3 Alex Marinelli (St. Paris Graham, Ohio) and No. 32 Kaleb Young (Punxsatawney, Pa.) as nationally ranked wrestlers in Iowa's 2016 recruiting class.
