Rutgers Wrestling never stops. It’s impossible to stop.
Head coach Scott Goodale has always said, you must stay ahead of your opponent, especially in the Big Ten. Well, the Scarlet Knights are getting any early jump on the class of 2020. After securing commit Connor O’Neil from DePaul Catholic, Rutgers earned another from John Poznanski of Colonia High School.
Of course, the coaches were excited too.

Building it one RARE individual at a time! Now that makes TWO for 2020. The RAC will continue to Rock. Ring the Bell Boys. Red Team Upstream!— Donny Pritzlaff (@donnypritzlaff) October 5, 2018
Poznanski, who will be entering his junior year of high school, finished 3rd at 160 pounds in the 2018 State Tournament at Boardwalk Hall and also won a Region 4 title back in February. He will be a welcome addition as the Scarlet Knights, notorious for recruiting a lot of talented lightweights, are starting to bring in a more balanced recruiting class.
The wrestling team is building something special one recruit at a time and it’s looking like they will be a team competing at the top of the powerful Big Ten conference for the foreseeable future.
You’ll need a Flo Wrestling Pro account to access Flo’s training series videos from a recent Rutgers practice, plus interviews with Goodale and Nick Suriano. They are worth the watch for Rutgers fans and wrestling junkies.
