UVU Signs Three More Recruits to Cap Great Recruiting Year
OREM, Utah — Despite already ranking 17th nationally in the 2010-2011 recruiting class, Utah Valley University's wrestling coach, Greg Williams, announced the signing of two more top Utah wrestlers and one outstanding talent from Las Vegas, Nev. on Wednesday.
Cody Hone from Cedar City High School in Cedar City Utah, a four-time state finalist and two-time state champion, has signed with the Wolverines. He was 51-1 this past season and has a 180-18 career record. Cody is projected to be a 133 pounder for the team next year.
Also from Utah, Jake Falk from West Jordan High School in West Jordan, Utah, has signed with UVU. Jake was a four-time state placer, a three-time state finalist and was the Utah State Champion this past season. He is ranked No. 14 in the country according to InterMat Wrestling. The coaches feel that Jake is capable of competing anywhere from 149-174 pounds during his career.
Napoleon Aniciette from Las Vegas High School in Las Vegas, Nev., signed a National Letter of Intent last week with the Wolverines. Napoleon was a three-time state champion (not being able to compete his sophomore season because of a transfer rule) and will compete at either 149 or 157 for Utah Valley next season. Recovering from post-season surgery, Napoleon will most likely red-shirt next year.
"We are very excited about this group of student-athletes," Williams stated. "They are great young men in the classroom, on the mat and in general. They bring experience, confidence and work ethic into our program and will make great contributions to the team."
"These three help complete a tremendous recruiting class. With the talented freshmen and sophomores we already have and the development of this group, our program will be an exciting team to watch during the next few years."
