Last week we announced one of the biggest head-to-head meetings in event history with Cohlton Schultz of Colorado taking on Jared Campbell of Ohio. Today we announce another top five ranked head-to-head battle as Oklahoma’s #3 Kaden Gfeller will face #5 Jaime Hernandez of Illinois.

Hailing from Heritage Hall, Gfeller has placed at just about every major tournament the sport has to offer. In addition to being a three-time state champion, Gfeller has also boasts Super 32 middle school, Fargo freestyle, and FloNationals tournament titles and has placed at other major tournaments such as UWW Cadets, Fargo Juniors, Super 32, and Freakshow. All of those accolades has led to the Oklahoman being ranked the #9 overall recruit in the 2017 class.

Hernandez wrestles for Illinois powerhouse Oak Park River Forest, and is teammates with Night of Conflict wrestler Jason Renteria. A three-time Fargo All-American, state finalist, and this year’s UWW Cadet World Team finalist, Hernandez is rated #61 in class of 2017.
