Senior wrestler Jacob Warner, of Washington High School in Illinois, signed a letter of intent to attend and wrestle for the University of Iowa last week.
Warner is the grandson of Robert “RG” Scott, of Mt. Pleasant, and was featured in the Aug. 1 issue of The Mt. Pleasant News.
He most recently competed in the World Championships in Russia, where he placed third in his weight class, falling by criteria in the semifinal match and winning the bronze with an 11-0 decision.
Warner chose Iowa over 20 other Division I schools who were after the prospect, who is currently wrestling at 182 lbs.
