Colston DiBlasiColston DiBlasi, a sophomore 165-pounder, has asked for and been granted a full release transfer to any school outside the Big 12, per conference rules ... while his younger brother Weston, who had signed to wrestle for the Cyclones last November, is seeking release from his National Letter of Intent.
Colston DiBlasi has not said where he intends to transfer. The family said Weston -- a two-time Missouri state medalist who is projected to wrestle at 125 or 133 pounds in college -- plans to go to the school Colston selects.
Colston DiBlasi told the Des Moines Register that simple disagreements with the new coaching staff -- headed up by Kevin Dresser -- led to his decision. He was recruited by former Iowa State head coach Kevin Jackson and his staff.
A product of Park Hill High School in Kansas City, Missouri, Colston DiBlasi was a three-time individual state champ, and was a Top 100 Class of 2015 recruit. At Iowa State, DiBlasi compiled an overall record of 59-35 with 37 pins; this season, he was 20-12 with 17 falls, mostly at 157 pounds, though he had wrestled two matches this season at 165, losing both.
Colston DiBlasi's release is the fifth from the Cyclones since Dresser took the helm, and follows on the heels of the contentious departure of Kanen Storr a couple weeks ago.
