I wish we could claim him because I think he’s going to do some great things at Stanford.
Your post and your list but IMO IHSA alum are more "Illinois wrestlers" than kids that grew up here but wrestled hs out of state.

Real Woods is more of an Illinois wrestling product than Devin Kane who grew up here and wrestled HS in GA before making the round of 12 as a redshirt freshman last month.
