    Iowa State's wrestling team will feature another Nate Carr, starting with the 2008-09 season.

    Nate Carr Jr., a junior-college national champion last winter at Iowa Central Community College, said today he will compete for the Cyclones two decades after his father won three NCAA championships and 122 matches under coach Harold Nichols.

    Nate Carr Sr. also won a bronze medal in freestyle wrestling at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, Korea.

    ?I don?t want to go any lower than being a three-time national champ,? said Nate Carr Jr., who is being withheld from competition this season at Iowa Central this winter.

    The newest Carr will have three seasons of eligibility at Iowa State, which he said he chose over Iowa.

    Carr Jr. originally signed to wrestle at West Virginia, but did not qualify academically, which landed him at Iowa Central.

    I would guess 57 or 65.

    I'm glad to see another Carr in Division I wrestling. While, they probably rank behind the Peery's and Smiths, they are one of the great wrestling families.

    Here's Nate Sr in the 1988 Olympics.

    (Does Kenny Monday have a son that could wrestle Nate Jr?)

    That's great news!

    I had the pleasure of interviewing him at the end of last season for a profile for Rev, and Nate Jr is truly a classy young man who seems to be following in his father's asics in more ways than one. A couple years ago, he was basically packed and ready to go to West Virginia Univ until he found out his SAT score was ten points shy of what was required... so, his college career was detoured to Iowa Central, where he won an NCAA title, and, of course, the attention of more than a few Div 1 coaches. I think Iowa State will be a good fit for him... and certainly a recruiting win for Cael and his Cyclones.
