    Zeke Moisey, Nebraska – 133 LBS (Previous school West Virginia)

    After Sammie Henson was not retained as head coach, Zeke Moisey explored his options for his final season of eligibility. Moisey, the 2015 NCAA runner-up, will head to Nebraska and join former high school teammate Mike Labriola in Lincoln. Zeke earned All-American honors this year after coming up short in 2016 and redshirting 2017.

    Nice good stuff Bean.
    4 of the 5 B1G teams are in the top 5, hopefully we and others can close the gap and give Penn State a run; although they have #1 class. They develope them well there too, bigger the stage the better they seem to be.

    The Huskers announced the signings of six prep wrestlers: Anthony Gaona (Overland Park, Kansas), Valentine's Jordan Kelber, Josh Mason (Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania), Jevon Parrish (Olathe, Kansas), Peyton Robb (Owatonna, Minnesota) and Brandyn Van Tassell (Spanish Fork, Utah). The spring signing group also included two transfers in Zeke Moisey from West Virginia, a two-time All-American and 2015 NCAA runner-up, and Christian Lance from Fort Hays State. Moisey will be eligible immediately as a graduate transfer.

    Kelber was a three-time Class C state champion at Valentine and is the son of Nebraska national champion wrestler and former NU assistant coach Jason Kelber, who won the 126-pound NCAA title in 1991 and was a three-time All-American. Robb is a three-time Minnesota state champion, Parrish is a two-time Kansas state champion and Van Tassell is a two-time Utah state champion.

    Brock Hardy (Brigham City, Utah), Jake Silverstein (Smithtown, New York) and Alex Thomsen (Neola, Iowa) signed during the November period. Thomsen is a one of the most accomplished prep wrestlers in Iowa history as a four-time state champion with a 190-1 career prep record. Hardy is a four-time state champion and, along with Van Tassell, will join the Huskers in 2020 after two-year Mormon missions.

    Jake Silverstein (Hauppague, NY) 157
    Brandyn Van Tassell (Maple Mountain, UT) 184

    2017 Ranking: #7

    The Cornhuskers had put together an outstanding recruiting class, however probably out of the top ten, until the spring hit. Peyton Robb, the top-ranked 160 lber in the nation, de-committed from South Dakota State after Chris Bono left and had signed with Nebraska. Austin Emerson originally signed with Eastern Michigan but needed to look elsewhere after their program was dropped. 2015 NCAA runner-up and two-time All-American Zeke Moisey transferred out of West Virginia after Sammie Henson was let go. Moisey fills a massive need at 125. A pair of four-time state champions signed with head coach Mark Manning early, they are Utah’s Brock Hardy and Iowa’s Alex Thomsen. Hardy will join the Huskers after taking a two-year mission. New York state champion Jake Silverstein should redshirt then attempt to replace All-American Tyler Berger at 157.
