David Terao is one of the most recent ones that comes to mind. Did have a grappling background but didn't start wrestling till high school and was an AA in 2016.

He's going to get some of the best coaching around, though, and that's nice.

Hey Chief, this is what is listed on wikipedia for U of I notables, not even a mention of of IMar, is Jeff Monson more famous? You might want to remedy that...

Mark Jayne – wrestler; two-time NWCA All-Star Member

Thanks, Blonjuan44! That is something that requires updating. I've never edited a wikipedia article before. Maybe I should learn how -- and also create an entry for "Ghost Preacher"?

On another subject, they need a college wrestling tournament in September every year. Another in October would be nice as well. Do we really have to wait two months between Worlds and the start of college wrestling? How is that fair?

GO ILLINI!!!

Fortunately this year’s event at the Poeta training center is less than a month away... https://twitter.com/illinirtc/status...132736512?s=21

I wish I could be there this year but already had travel plans that weekend. Would be awesome to see Emery Parker wrestle again.
