Iowa picks up commitment from Drexel transfer Austin DeSanto

Austin DeSanto has found a new home and Iowa has added to its lightweight stable.

DeSanto told Trackwrestling on Sunday that he intends to join the Hawkeyes next season after transferring from Drexel.

“I thought about it for a while,” DeSanto said. “This whole week I thought about what I’m about and this opportunity and what I want to do with them and how hard they wrestle and how hard they train. That’s what I’m about. That’s what I want to become and I think they can get me to the point where I can become a national champ. That’s why I chose them.”

DeSanto compiled a 30-7 record this past season as a true freshman at 133 pounds and reached the round of 12 at the NCAA Championships. He said he also considered Rutgers and Penn State during the transfer process.
