It’s a big day for the Iowa State program, as they got the addition of one of the nation’s top 138 pound wrestlers in the country when Michigan prep Kanen Storr announced that he would be continuing his education at Iowa State University. The Lesile product is a two-time Michigan State champion, three-time finalist, and has had top five finishes at all the big tournaments: Super 32, FloNationals, and Fargo. He will project as a 141 pound wrestler for the Cyclones.
It’s an interesting story how Kanen ended up choosing Iowa State, but after a runner-up finish at the UWW Cadet World Team trials in May, Storr was on the Pan-American team that competed down in Mexico. It was there Storr met one of his future coaches Travis Paulson, and from there a relationship formed that ended with Storr choosing Iowa State.
Storr selected the Cyclones over Michigan, Purdue, Penn State, and Nebraska, which he had varying levels of interest throughout the summer. He will also be a part of IA Wrestle’s first event, the Night of Conflict where he will take on 2015 Iowa state champion Ryan Leisure. Cyclone fans hungry to see an early look at one of the future prospects only need to head down to the event to watch him compete in the Night of Conflict, as well as the Conflict at Carver tournament the next day. You can order tickets to the event here.
This is the second big recruiting annoucement for Iowa State, as they recently added to 2017 recruit Austin Gomez two weeks ago.
