MADISON, Wis. -- Former Nebraska wrestler and Wisconsin native Beau Breske has transferred to Wisconsin and is expected to wrestle at 197 pounds.
"I'm happy to go out and represent Wisconsin on the mat," Breske said. "I like the way the coaches here run their program and the academics are outstanding! I am looking forward to my future at Wisconsin."
Breske will be coming in as a redshirt sophomore and can currently only compete unattached for Wisconsin. In his two seasons at Nebraska, Breske had a 10-14 record, going 1-2 in his redshirt season and then 9-12 as a freshman last year. Prior to Nebraska, Breske was ranked No. 2 at 182 pounds and No. 9 overall (FloWrestling) in the Class of 2016. As a high schooler at Hartford, Breske was dominant. He compiled a 203-3 record over his four years and earned three state titles in his freshman, sophomore and senior seasons, and was a runner-up his junior year. Breske didn't give up a takedown, nearfall point or reversal in 175 straight matches, and wasn't scored upon at all in the state tournament his senior year.
Beau Breske will begin his career as a Badger this weekend, competing unattached at the Midlands Championships.
