The St. Michael, Minn. native will take questions from fans throughout the chat and talk about this weekend’s upcoming battle between the No. 5 Gophers and No. 2 Iowa. Minnesota will host its Big Ten rival on Sunday at 2 p.m. at Williams Arena. The Big Ten Network will broadcast the dual later that night at 8:30 p.m.
Thorn, ranked second at 141 lbs. by InterMat, will have another challenge on Sunday when he meets Iowa’s Montell Marion – ranked third in the weight class – on the mat. Thorn is 32-2 on the year and leads all Big Ten wrestlers in wins.
