Cysewski Adds One to Recruiting Class

Marist High School product joins 'Cats for 2007-08

> Complete List of College Commitments

EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern head wrestling coach Tim Cysewski has announced that John Schoen (Homer Glen, Ill./Marist) has signed a National Letter of Intent and will join the 'Cats for the 2007-08 season. The Wildcats are coming off a fourth-place finish at the 2007 NCAA Championships, the highest in program history.

Schoen, who projects to be a 197-pound wrestler for the Wildcats, compiled 118 wins in high school record while competing four seasons on the varsity squad. He broke Marist's career record for most takedowns. He led the Redhawks in wins, team points, takedowns and winning percentage. He is currently ranked 11th nationally at 215 lbs. by W.I.N. Magazine.

"John will compliment out upper-weights very well," Cysewski said. "Last season, we had the best 184, 197, 285 combination in the NCAA and John will help ensure that this trend continues."

In his senior year as Team Captain, Schoen was 44-4 with 22 falls and took first place at the Mahomet Seymour and IHSA Regionals. He was named Outstanding Wrestler at the East Suburban Catholic Conference (ESCC) where we won a conference championship at 215 lbs. He took second place at the IHSA sectionals and third at the Class AA state finals. During his junior year, Schoen was a state finalist.

Schoen also was a two-year starter at linebacker for Marist's football team and was a four-year honor roll student.

He joins Mike Benefiel (Aurora, Ill./Montini Catholic), Ben Kuhar (Concord Twp., Ohio/St. Edward) and Robert Kellogg (Sioux City, Iowa/Sioux City North) in this year's recruiting class.
