Osborn Announces Cobber Recruiting Class

Concordia Head coach Quincy Osborn released his recruiting class on Tuesday as the team prepares for the 2021 season.

“This is the largest and most geographically diverse recruiting class we have assembled in my time at Concordia,” Osborn said. “This group has a lot of high character guys who come to campus having excellent accolades on the mat and in the classroom.”

The incoming group of 15 student/athletes boasts wrestlers from nine different states. The geographical breakdown of the recruiting class includes Minnesota, North Dakota, Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Texas and Washington.

The incoming class also features a Division I transfer, a pair of state champions, four wrestlers who competed in a state championship match, nine state place winners and 14 state qualifiers.

“I am excited to see how all this class of wrestlers will continue to develop at the college level,” Osborn added. “They will be integral to our roster and will contribute to the continued ascent of the Cobber wrestling program.”
