A huge get for Tiger Style.
Head coach Brian Smith and the Mizzou Wrestling program picked up their second commitment in their 2022 recruiting class on Tuesday, and it sure was a big one.
Zeke Seltzer, from Cathedral High School in Indianapolis, Indiana announced his commitment to Missouri via Twitter on Tuesday night.
I am excited to announce that I will be continuing my academic and athletic career at the University of Missouri! Thank you to all my coaches at CIA and Cathedral High School and my parents for helping me along this journey. #TigerStyle pic.twitter.com/OcA1T9JUE8— Zeke Seltzer (@ZekeSeltzer) June 9, 2021
According to Earl Smith, site editor of InterMat Wrestling, this has all of the makings to be a massive pickup for the Tigers. Seltzer was ranked as one of the top available juniors and the No. 10 overall wrestler in the 2022 Class according to MatScouts, and the second ranked wrestler at 132 pounds.
This, from InterMat:
“At the next level, Seltzer projects at 133 lbs for the Tigers. That doesn’t appear to be a pressing need for Mizzou as they have freshman Trey Crawford and Korbin Shepherd backing up junior Matt Schmitt in 2021-2022. Though not a huge need, it’s difficult to pass up a recruit of Seltzer’s caliber. Brian Smith’s team has the makings of another strong recruiting class with their current crop for the Class of 2022. In addition to Seltzer, Missouri has a verbal commitment from #51 Clayton Whiting (Oconto Falls, WI.)”
From returning to the Big 12 Conference and putting together a very impressive recruiting class, these are very exciting times surrounding the Mizzou Wrestling program. Welcome to Tiger Style, Zeke! M-I-Z!
