Two-time state place-winner Nathan Haynes from Missouri Valley has committed to Nick Mitchell and the Grand View University Vikings.

“Grand View felt like home for me being in Des Moines and having spent a lot of time in that area.” – Haynes on the commitment.

The Grand View commit chose the Vikings over UNK, SMSU, NSU and UNL.

Haynes finished runner-up his sophomore season and completed his junior campaign with a fourth place finish in class 1a at 160 pounds. He plans to wrestle the first half of the season 170 pounds but could make his way down to 160 as the season progresses.

Haynes is projected at 165-174 pounds in college.
