MINNEAPOLIS -- University of Minnesota head wrestling coach J Robinson and the Golden Gopher Wrestling Program are pleased to announce the signing of high school senior Scott Schiller to a National Letter of Intent today (Apr. 29).

Scott Schiller
A native of Fargo, N.D., Schiller will graduate this spring from West Fargo Senior High School.

Schiller had a standout career at West Fargo High School, earning three consecutive North Dakota State titles. He won his first state title as a sophomore, claiming the title at 171-pounds. As a junior he moved up to 189, but still won his second consecutive state championship.

Finally, his senior year was his best, as he dominated the competition on the way to a 43-0 record and his third state title at his third different weight class, winning at 215-pounds. He also spent his senior year in the national polls, ranking at No. 4 in the country at 215.

He finished his career with a 165-27 record and was named North Dakota's Senior Wrestler of the Year in 2010.

Schiller is the 10th Gopher Wrestling signee this season, and joins an already stellar class of recruits for 2010-2011. He will begin his Golden Gopher career next fall.

The 2009-10 group of Minnesota wrestlers finished their season with a seventh place finished at the NCAA Championships and will return three All-Americans next season.
