    Late Spring Class of 2023 Recruiting Update

    SIU Edwardsville recruit Deion Johnson

    In doing research for our forthcoming recruiting rankings, InterMat stumbled about a huge list of DI recruits that have not necessarily been widespread. Some were late signees, others may have been overlooked or featured a wrestler that doesn't have a huge social media footprint.

    Whichever the case, here are a bunch of recruits to add to your notes, along with 2023 state tournament credentials (for the most part).
