    Young named Big Ten Wrestler of the Week

    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Redshirt junior Paul Young earned Big Ten Wrestler of the Week honors on Tuesday after a perfect 5-0 showing at the Hoosier Duals and improving his undefeated season record to 10-0.

    The 13th-ranked wrestler in his class, Young pinned three opponents in Cumberlands' Dyvon Passmore, Chattanooga's Brandon Wright and Liberty's Logan Crawford. He also defeated Northern Illinois' John Odeen with a 16-8 major decision before earning his fifth win of the weekend by forfeit against South Dakota State. The Bloomington High School South product led Indiana to a flawless 5-0 mark at the event and claims his first Big Ten Wrestler of the Week honor.

    Young and the rest of the Hoosier grapplers are headed to Nevada this weekend for the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational from Dec. 4-5.

    Young is one of six IU wrestlers ranked nationally in their respective weight classes. Also in the rankings this week are Angel Escobedo (2nd at 125 lbs.), Kurt Kinser (10th at 157 lbs.), Nate Everhart (10th at 285 lbs.), Matt Coughlin (16th at 149 lbs.) and Trevor Perry (18th at 174 lbs.). As a team, the Cream and Crimson are slotted 12th nationally this week by Intermat, and 13th in the NWCA/USA Today Coaches Poll.
