The Gophers wrestling team will return two All-Americans and head coach Brandon Eggum brought in one of the best recruiting classes in the country this year. It all points to successful seasons ahead for the Gophers.

Heavyweight Gable Steveson of Apple Valley enters the University of Minnesota as the most highly decorated freshmen in the country. A three-time National Champion and four-time Minnesota State Champion, Steveson figures to contribute right away as a true freshman.

"He's a competitor," Eggum told KSTP at the Gophers Road Trip event in Cannon Falls. "He knows and believes he can beat anybody in the country and he's proven that at this point."
