Huskies recruit class grows to 12

St. Cloud, Minn. – St. Cloud State University head wrestling coach Steve Costanzo announced the addition of three more student-athletes to their strong 2021 recruiting class. Alyeus Craig (Wichita, Kan.) and Gabriel Rangel (Bettendorf, Iowa) have signed a National Letters of Intent with the Huskies while Sebastian Zamorano (St. Paul, Minn.) has signed an Acceptance of Admission letter.

Along with Craig, Rangel and Zamorano – nine additional stand-outs have announced their intentions to continue their education at SCSU in the fall: Mac Copeland (Bennett, Colo.), Augustus Donovan (Richland Center, Wis.), Anthony Herrera (Stansbury Park, Utah), Isaac Grams (Bloomington, Minn.), Nate Rocheleau (Gering, Neb.), Nicholas Lopez (Huntley, Ill.), Paul Ruff (Gering, Neb.), Tyson Meyer (Glenwood, Minn.) and Nicholas Novak (New Prague, Minn.). All have signed with Huskies wrestling earlier this past year.


“Aleus is an excellent addition to Huskies wrestling,” said Costanzo. “He is an extreme competitor who competes at the highest levels. A force in the top position, Craig will look to make an immediate impact with SCSU wrestling in the lower weight classes.”
