Jason Renteria selects Nebraska

Illinois prep Jason Renteria has given his verbal commitment to the University of Nebraska. Renteria, who wrestles for powerhouse program Oak Park River Forest, is currently the #1 ranked 132 pound wrestler in the nation by Flowrestling.

Renteria made his announcement on Twitter:

In making his commitment to Nebraska, Renteria gives the Huskers their second top 50 recruit, joining #5 overall Mikey Labriola of Pennsylvania. Renteria is ranked #33 overall in the class of 2017 by Flowrestling.

As a sophomore, Renteria had committed to wrestle for the University of Iowa, but backed out of that commitment in early July. Immediately Renteria listed Nebraska as an option along with Illinois, North Carolina, Missouri, and Penn State.

Renteria’s resume is littered with top finishes at prestigious tournaments, most recently earning double All-American status at UWW Cadet nationals. He is also a two-time state champion, and three-time state finalist. He owns top finishes at USAW folkstyle nationals, Kickoff Classic, and Super 32 middle school, and is a two-time Ironman runner-up.

Competing at 132 pounds, Renteria will project as a 133 pound wrestler for Nebraska. Fans can also catch Renteria in the Night of Conflict 2 in the fall.
