UNI’s class of 2020 got a little deeper today as they added the talents of Western Iowa product Wade Mitchell to the fold. A middle weight prospect from Woodbury Central, Mitchell becomes the third member of UNI’s 2020 recruiting class.

A three-time state medalist, Mitchell had his breakout season as a sophomore when he reached the 1A state finals. Last season as a junior Mitchell earned his first state title at 145 pounds. He was fifth as a freshman.

Mitchell joins a class that includes one of the state’s top wrestlers, Cael Happel of Lisbon, and they also added Florida state champion Ethan Basile earlier this month. Stay tuned to IAwrestle for more #PantherTrain recruiting news.
