Jake Residori wants you to know he wasn't overlooked, rather he chose SIU Edwardsville on his own accord. On Episode 322 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, we'll talk with the Shorewood, Illinois, native about his All-American finish at the 2017 NCAA Division I Championships.
SIU Edwardsville moved to Division I in 2007, but its wrestling team wouldn't be postseason eligible until 2013. Residori became the school's first Division I All-American since Tim Wright finished third in 1987 as a Division II qualifier to the tournament. Residori has the unique distinction in becoming the first wrestling All-American since the school has been a full member of Division I.
Residori will explain the recruiting process under former coach David Ray, the transition to coach Jeremy Spates, the dynamic of assistant coaches Eric Grajales and Rossi Bruno and how exactly he set up the move of his life to earn All-American honors.
