Thread: Refreshing Iowa State news

    Default Refreshing Iowa State news

    When was the last time we posted something good for ISU?

    It was announced today by WHO TV in Des Moines that John Meeks of Des Moines Roosevelt has decommited from Nebraska and will now go to Iowa State. Johns older brother Blake was going to Nebraska but has transferred to NC school of the Arts, prompting John to change his mind. Meeks is undefeated through his high school career.

    I love watching this kid wrestle and if Iowa cant get him, I'm glad he's going to ISU where I'll still get to see him on a regular basis. Good pickup for KJ!

    Very interesting. Any details as to why he decided to not go to Nebraska?

    It's common knowledge around Iowa that Meeks was looking for a full ride to wherever he was going to attend. Nebraska was willing to give him one. Hell, from what I've seen of this kid, he deserves one. His brother was also there, which I now assume was a huge deal for him. Like alot of wrestling siblings, he wanted to go where his brother was at. His brother had a change of heart and decided to explore his artistic side and left for NC. John was now comitted to a place where he didnt know anyone except for the contact he has had with Manning so he probably had second thoughts. There are alot of central Iowa kids that are either at, or going to be going to Iowa State, plus they probably gave him alot of money. I think he'll fit in pretty good up there and be a force for the Cyclones in a couple of years. He's an undefeated 3X state champion from Iowa and I know he rolls around with Cory Clark alot. (another undefeated 3Xer) He's the real deal and this is great news for Iowa State. Undefeated 4X state champs don't come along very often in Iowa. I think theres been like three total.

    I was wrong. There's four.

    Eric Juergens 144-0 (Iowa)
    Jeff Kerber 126-0 (Iowa)
    Dan Knight ? (ISU)
    Jeff McGinnis 173-0 (Iowa)

    If things go the way they "should" Iowa will be adding two more kids to that list next year. Cory Clark of SE Polk who will likely end up at Iowa and John Meeks of Roosevelt who is now going to Iowa State.

    Herkey, you're telling me that an Iowa native up and left, decommitted from wrestling, to go to the east coast and pursue an arts degree?

    And you approve of this? This is not the Herkey I know.
