The University of Iowa has added to their already impressive recruiting Class of 2023 after they received a commitment from the #6 overall recruit Gabe Arnold (Wyoming Seminary, PA). Arnold made his announcement on USA Wrestling's Mat Chat podcast.
Arnold is currently ranked fifth in the nation at 170 lbs and projects at 174 for the Hawkeyes. A Georgia native, Arnold has won a pair of National Prep titles while competing for Wyoming Seminary. So far this season, Arnold has placed sixth at the Walsh Ironman and the Powerade. Over the summer, Arnold won Fargo's 16U freestyle tournament after placing in both styles (5th/GR, 7th/FS) at the Cadet World Team Trials.
With Gabe's commitment, Iowa now has verbals from four wrestlers in the Class of 2023; #4 Nate Jesuroga, #13 Ben Kueter, #54 Ryder Block.
