    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana University Wrestling has corralled the ninth-ranked recruiting class in the country for 2014-15 according to W.I.N. Magazine's early signing period national rankings released this week.

    Excerpt from W.I.N. Magazine:
    "Five of coach Duane Goldman's seven recruits are ranked, led by Ohioan Jacob Danishek (149-157) and a pair of Michigan standouts, three-time state champion Cole Weaver (133-141) of Hudson and Logan Marcicki (165-174) of Novi Detroit Catholic Central. In the upper weights, Bryce Martin (174-184) of Bakersfield (Calif.) heads east, with Fletcher Miller (Hwt) of Kokomo the top in-state recruit."

    The gauntlet of Big Ten Wrestling looks to continue to be an absolute grind in years to come, evidenced by seven of the conference's schools ranked in the top-10 of W.I.N.'s recruiting rankings and nine in the top-12. Maryland and Rutgers, 2014-15 B1G members, are slotted No. 21 and No. 22, respectively; making it 12 of 14 Big Ten programs in the top-25.

    Five of the future Hoosiers are ranked in the top-20 of their weight class nationally, and another is slotted #1 at his weight in the state of Indiana.
