It sounds the same, but Jaydin Clayton spells his first name differently than Missouri national champion wrestler J’den Cox.
In another year, the Tolton senior plans to follow a similar path as the former Hickman standout.
Clayton, a three-time Class 1 state champion who has yet to lose a high school match, gave MU Coach Brian Smith a verbal commitment on Tuesday to wrestle for the Tigers.
“I was thinking about a lot of other places,” Clayton said, noting Penn State and Nebraska, “but really I think Mizzou feels like family to me.”
