    *Panther Wrestling Inks Six for 2011-12 Season*

    *CEDAR FALLS**, Iowa ? *The University of Northern Iowa wrestling team
    inked six student-athletes for the 2011-12 season head coach Doug Schwab
    announced today. Joining the Panther wrestling squad will be Blaize
    Cabell (Independence, Iowa/Independence HS), Joe Colon (Clear Lake,
    Iowa/Clear Lake HS/Iowa Central), Tanner Hiatt (Kelley, Iowa/Ballard
    (Huxley) HS), Jarrett Jensen (Rapid City, SD/Stevens HS), Cody Krumwiede
    (Waverly, Iowa/Waverly-Shell Rock HS) and AJ McBroom (Runnells,
    Iowa/Southeast Polk HS).

    ?We worked really hard as a coaching staff recruiting this fall and
    we?re very pleased with the six kids that have signed with us,? Schwab
    said. ?We are very excited to get these six kids on campus in 2011. This
    class has some good depth and will really fit our needs. Five of the
    signees are from the state of Iowa and the one is from South Dakota.
    Because of that, each of them has a very strong work ethic and blue
    collar work mentally. These six signees will fit very well into our
    program right away. They believe in our program and we?re eager to
    welcome them to UNI wrestling in 2011.?

    *Blaize Cabell ? Independence, Iowa/Independence HS*

    Cabell is a three-time Iowa state qualifier placing sixth in 2009 at 171
    pounds, finishing the season with a 40-4 record. In addition, he is a
    USA Wrestling National Folkstyle Champion.

    ?Blaize may be a little raw, but he is a big, strong explosive kid,?
    Schwab said. ?In addition to wrestling he played football and baseball
    and was very good at both of them. He is a very athletic kid and we?re
    excited to see him concentrate on wrestling when he comes to UNI. He has
    a lot of untapped ability and we?re excited to see what we can do when
    he focuses just on wrestling. He?s also a great student and has a high
    priority for academics.?

    *Joe Colon ? Clear Lake, Iowa/Clear Lake HS/Iowa Central*

    At Clear Lake, Colon finished his high school career with a 130-1
    record, including perfect seasons in 2007 and 2009. Colon was a two-time
    state champion, taking the title at 103 pounds in 2007 and the 125-pound
    title in 2009. Colon also finished third at the 2008 state
    championships. At Iowa Central, Colon was a 2010 National Junior College
    Champion at 125 pounds.

    ?Joe only lost once in high school and was junior college champion and
    he is a very tough, hard-nosed kid,? Schwab said. ?Obviously he is used
    to winning and always wrestles hard. He really bought into the UNI
    wrestling philosophy and we?re looking forward to working with him.?

    *Tanner Hiatt ? Kelley, Iowa/Ballard (Huxley) HS*

    Hiatt captured the 2009 state title at 140 pounds capping a perfect 47-0
    season. Hiatt earned runner-up honors at 130 pounds in 2008 while
    finishing third at 140 pounds in 2010. In the past three seasons, Hiatt
    has compiled an impressive 131-6 record while also helping Ballard
    (Huxley) High School to three straight top-three team finishes,
    including back-to-back state titles in 2008 and 2009.

    ?Tanner is a very tough competitor,? Schwab said. ?He is very tough and
    physical kid with a very strong determination to win. He has a very
    strong desire to walk onto the mat and really beat his competitor.?

    *Jarrett Jensen ? Rapid City, S.D./Stevens HS*

    Jensen is a four-time state qualifier in South Dakota, capturing titles
    in 2008, 2009 and 2010. Jensen captured his first state title in 2008 at
    145 pounds before claiming titles at 152 pounds in 2009 and 2010. Jensen
    also earned a third-place finish in 2007 at 135 pounds.

    ?We were very persistent with Jarrett,? Schwab said. ?He won a lot in
    South Dakota but seemed a little overlooked by some. I see a great deal
    of potential in him. He is also a very good baseball player, so I?m
    excited to see his improvement when he can focus on just wrestling.
    Jarrett is also a very good student.?

    *Cody Krumwiede ? Waverly, Iowa/Waverly-Shell Rock HS*

    Krumwiede comes into the 2010-11 season ranked as the top heavyweight in
    the country at 285 pounds by InterMat Wrestling. He is a three-time
    state qualifier, claiming back-to-back titles at the heavyweight slot.
    He has posted two consecutive undefeated seasons while claiming state
    titles in 2009 and 2010. In addition, Krumwiede helped Waverly-Shell
    Rock High School to three-consecutive team titles.

    ?We feel he is one of the top heavyweights in the country,? Schwab said.
    ?But in addition to that, he really sold himself to me. I have been
    really impressed by his work ethic and his toughness on the mat. He has
    some very high goals and we want to continue that when he gets to UNI.
    If he continues to progress at the rate he did in high school, we?ll
    have a great heavyweight on our hands in a few years.?

    *AJ McBroom ? Runnells, Iowa/Southeast Polk HS*

    McBroom is a two-time state qualifier, placing seventh at 160 pounds in
    2009 and eighth at 171 pounds in 2010. McBroom helped Southeast Polk
    High School to two top-10 finishes at the state tournament, taking
    eighth in 2010 and fourth in 2009.

    ?AJ is a very hard working, tough kid and he?s always hungry for more,?
    Schwab said. ?He maybe doesn?t have the same accolades as some of the
    others, but he is very motivated and really wanted to be at UNI. I
    almost feel like he has a chip on his shoulder and is really ready to
    come prove himself when he gets here.?

    They do wrestle Old Dominion on Saturday, which ought to be a pretty competitive dual. ODU is ranked above UNI in the rankings, but head to head, UNI seems to match up better.
    UNI Panthers...Because it's just right.

    Unless ODU is offering one, I know that UNI is not.

    I did just read this, though.

    PANTHER WRESTLING ON THE INTERNET
    For those who can't make it to the West Gym to follow the Panthers live, you can see all the live action from the UNI's home duals online. UNI will be streaming video from all of its home duals this season for a nominal fee on UNI's Game Central. Visit www.unipanthers.com for more information.

    I would love to talk more UNI on here as well. If you've ever got anything to say about them, bring it up. I'll reply. UNI ranks right behind Iowa for me. My enthusiasm had wained the past few years but now I am more excited than ever about the future of this team. Schwab is doing a great job as is evidenced by this recruiting class. I think the classes will continue to get even better once he has had more time under his belt. He and his brother are, by all accounts great motivators and the rest of his staff is solid as well. Randy Pugh has been around the team for years now and what else can you say about Tolly Thompsons credentials? Tolly grew up just eight miles away from Cedar Falls so I would imagine that this is a great fit for him.

    I think the direction of UNI's program is evident in the fact that they got Krumweided to go there. Off the top of my head I cannot think of one wrestler from Waverly that has gone to UNI which is just ten miles away. Waverly has had alot of good talent this past decade. I can see alot of those guys taking a serious look at UNI now. In fact, that area of the state is loaded with wrestling talent. I don't know if there is a more concentrated area in Iowa for great wrestlers than the Cedar Valley and surrounding fifty miles. The future looks bright for UNI and I am a proud alum...Does it make you an alum if you went there but never went to class and never graduated?

    That means you are alum for

    Hawkeye Tech (Cedar Falls, IA)
    UNI (Cedar Falls, IA)
    NIACC (Mason City, IA)
    ISU (Ames, IA)
    Windsor Heights Fire Department (Des Moines, IA)

    I don't think you can claim Alum if you didn't graduate Herky! If you do then you are Alum of all the above institutions!
