Minnesota Wrestling Adds Six on Signing Day

MINNEAPOLIS – The Minnesota wrestling program added six members on National Signing Day as Silas Dailey, Wyatt Duchateau, Koy Hopke, Charlie Millard, Jack Nelson and Jed Wester all signed National Letters of Intent, head coach Brandon Eggum announced.

“Our coaching staff is excited to announce a big chunk of our 2024 recruiting class,” Eggum said. “Building off of last year’s class, this local crew from Minnesota and Wisconsin is coming into their time at the ‘U’ with big expectations. This is a top-5 recruiting class that is full of young men who love the sport of wrestling and are looking to develop into the best wrestlers and people they can be.

“Their accomplishments on the mat and in the classroom are incredibly impressive. We have a couple of 4.0 students, a world champ, multiple All-Americans and many state championships in this group. They are like-minded in the way they wrestle with an aggressive attacking style and with their ability to beat top opponents throughout the country. This group has done that consistently throughout their careers and are eager to do it here, as well.”
