IAwrestle has learned that former Iowa high school state champion, Matt Malcom will be transferring out of the University of Iowa. The Glenwood native will be transferring west to Division II program, Nebraska-Kearney.
Competing at 157 pounds for the Hawkeyes, Malcom was 19-5 in his first season as a college wrestler winning titles at the Grand View Open and Luther Open, and also earning a runner-up finish at the Missouri Valley College Open, and he took third at the Pat “Flash” Flanagan Open.
There are Iowa ties at Malcom’s new university, as Nebraska-Kearney is led by former two-time Iowa high school state champion, Dalton Jensen.
“Matt is a high level wrestler that will make an immediate impact on our program.” Jensen told IAwrestle, “We look forward to getting him on campus to continue helping him perfect his skill as well as earn a college degree.”
