Jordan Receives National Recognition

INDIANAPOLIS — South Dakota State 125-pounder Tanner Jordan was honored Tuesday on NCAA Wrestling social media channels as Wrestler of the Week.

A senior from St. Paris, Ohio, Jordan knocked off sixth-ranked Patrick McKee of Minnesota, 9-3, in dual action Nov. 26 in Minneapolis. Jordan held a 3-2 lead entering the third period and was able to extend his lead with a reversal and three-point near-fall, followed by a point for a minute advantage in riding time. With his victory, Jordan remained undefeated this season at 9-0.

In addition, Jordan shared Big 12 Wrestler of the Week honors with Iowa State 133-pounder Evan Frost.

He rose to 16th in the individual 125-pound rankings compiled by InterMat, while moving up to 26th in this week’s FloWrestling survey. Jordan is one of eight Jackrabbit wrestlers currently in the NCAA Division I individual rankings.
