Another member of the Fab 50 has come off the board. Cedar Rapids Kennedy standout Josh Vis announced tonight on his personal social media account that he will be heading east for his future wrestling, committing to Northern Illinois University.

Ranked #47 in the latest Fab 50, Vis is a two-time state medalist in class 3A taking home seventh as a sophomore and third this past season. As a junior his only loss was to Bettendorf’s Griffin Liddle who has established himself as a top prospect in both wrestling and football.
Current Iowans on the Northern Illinois roster include Highland Riverside/Solon standouts Drew and Bryce West. Former Linn-Mar standout Alijah Jeffery is a recent grad, and the team named former Davenport Assumption wrestler (and Eastern Michigan grad) Kyle Springer as their assistant coach.
