Mark Hall (Apple Valley, Minn.), the nation's No. 1 wrestling recruit and 2015 InterMat High School Wrestler of the Year, will compete in his only preseason wrestling event of his senior year, the InterMat JJ Classic, three days before he announces his college decision on Nov. 11. He has entered the event at 170 pounds and will be in search of his fifth straight JJ Classic title.

Hall is a five-time state champion and will look to become Minnesota's first-ever six-time state champion. He was a UWW Cadet World champion in freestyle in 2014. Hall's wrestling resume is littered with titles at the nation's premier high school and college-age wrestling events. In May, Hall won the UWW Junior Nationals freestyle title by beating Penn State's Jason Nolf, and in June earned a spot on the Junior World Team when he dominated Oklahoma State's Chance Marsteller in the finals of the Junior World Team Trials in Madison, Wis.

The 2015 InterMat JJ Classic takes place on Sunday, Nov. 8, in Rochester, Minnesota. For more information on the InterMat JJ Classic or to register, visit the event website.
