The Iowa Hawkeyes have landed two-time Arizona state champion Jesse Ybarra. The junior from Sunnyside High School is currently ranked No. 12 in our latest rankings at 120 pounds.
This summer, Ybarra broke through in our rankings having winning the Cadet freestyle national championship at 120 pounds. Ybarra projects at 141 pounds for the Iowa Hawkeyes.
Joining Patrick Kennedy in the 2020 recruiting class, the Hawkeyes have been hitting home runs this summer. They added commits Abe Assad and Zach Glazier plus impact transfers Austin DeSanto and Jason Renteria.
After long thought, I’m proud to announce that Im going to be verbally committing and continuing my academic and athletic career at the university of Iowa! Thank you to all my family, friends and coaches who have supported me throughout this journey…go hawks! #FightforIowa pic.twitter.com/BjyYybo5n0
