College Recruiting: state placewinner Gruenes to Augustana University

Jonah Gruenes of Minneota has signed to wrestling for Augustana University next season.

Gruenes is a three-time state qualifier placing third at 152-pounds in Class A in 2021 as a junior.

“Boy, Jonah has been on our radar for a long time. We started talking to Jonah last spring and now he’s going to be a Viking! Jonah is exactly what we look for in our student-athletes, great student and outstanding all-around athlete. Jonah is a three sport starter excelling in football, baseball and wrestling. His ceiling is super high and we feel he is going to grow a lot in his first year in wrestling at Augustana. We are excited to get to work with Jonah this fall.”

-Augustana Wrestling Coach Jason Reitmeier

Gruenes is projected to wrestle at 174 or 184 pounds for the Vikings.
