The South Dakota State wrestling recruiting class for the 2013-14 season is ranked No. 6 by Amateur Wrestling News .
AWN rankings incorporate many factors, including: rankings, needs and other intangibles. One of the top criteria in developing a strong recruiting class is addressing a program’s needs.
The incoming class includes: Nate Rotert, Colin Holler, Paul Mascarenas, Matthew Seabold, Brandon Brunner, Chaas Delgado, Hank Goettl, Coltan Laganiere, Kyle Leet, Alex Macki, Austin Oyen, Jake Turk and Kyle White. Alex Kocer joined the team midway through the season.
In addition to the AWN ranking, the class was ranked No. 16 by Division 1 College Wrestling earlier this spring.
