The Gophers received the national letter of intent from top 182-pound prospect, Devin Winston to officially join the Gopher Wrestling program. Winston is a two-time state finalist who won the state title in 2017.
The senior from Park Hill, Missouri, is currently ranked No.1 at the 182-pound weight class by FloWrestling. Winston finished third at Ironman, beat fellow top prospect Abe Assad at “Who’s #1” and won the Kansas City Stampede.
“Devin has won at every level of wrestling,” assistant coach Trevor Brandvold said. “He’s a competitor that is a nightmare match-up for his opponents because he can level change, scramble, and is a tough rider with incredible length. We will have a lot of quality guys battling it out for our upper weight spots.”
