The Portillo brothers are on the move. After finishing their redshirt season at South Dakota State the brothers have decided to transfer out due to personal reasons. Both brothers were given a release from Chris Bono to wrestle outside of the Big 12 Conference.
This past season Justin finished 19-12 with two open titles. Josh posted an 18-10 record with five top-five finishes at college opens. Josh and Justin had storied careers at Clarion-Goldfield with a combined state title count of five. Justin finished 114-7 with consecutive state titles his junior and senior season. Josh Portillo won three consecutive state titles for Clarion-Goldfield at 113, 120 and 126 pounds.
The two are not a package deal and plan to wrestle second semester at another school. Both have interest in coming back to Iowa but their options at this point are wide open.
We will keep you updated on their next destination.
