Thread: Wisconsin's 285 Recruit

    Default Wisconsin's 285 Recruit

    Connor Medbury from Loveland, CO will be joining the Badgers next year. He just finished his HS career with his 3rd State title, and finished the season 44 - 0 (pinning all 39 guys he faced; the other five wins were from forfeits). He was also a highly regarded football recruit and appears to be extremely athletic. Can't wait to see him in a Badger singlet!

    39 for 39 in pins is very impressive, does he have any out-of-state accolades?

    7th/8th at Fargo isn't bad, but 39 pins in 39 attempts is awesome regardless of the competition.

    As a Badger fan I'm particularly pumped. Our current 285 (Buggenhagen) wrestled 171 in HS and 184 two years ago. He's bulked up a bit and is doing a fantastic job, but he's still one of the smaller heavies out there. Before that we had Massey, who was an AA and even beat Fox the year Fox won it all (giving Fox his only loss that year), and before that we had a wrestler that moved up in weight to fill the 285 void. So, it'll be nice to once again have a legit big guy right out of the gate.

    I don't care if it was Alexander Karelins roid rage Grandson coming in, this guy will never replace Eric Bugenhagen.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
