Default Josh Alber

Jim Nelson tweeted "Three-time undefeated 1A Illinois state champion Josh Alber of Dakota commits to Northern Iowa."

Alber's title last season was at 120. He will be a senior this coming year. Nice pick up for the Panthers!

From Intermat: Josh Alber (Dakota, Ill.), ranked No. 66 overall in the Class of 2014, committed to Northern Iowa. The two-time InterMat JJ Classic champion was also second in the Super 32 Challenge, and is undefeated for his high school career with an overall record of 134-0. He has the longest winning streak in Illinois high school wrestling history.

Projected to be at 133 in college, Schwab tweeted this was a late birthday present. Great get!

Josh Alber won the IndianaMat preseason tournament at 129. Pretty much rolled through the tournament until winning in the finals 1-0 over a 2013 state runner-up from Ohio. Nice to see that there are some really early season tournaments for kids.

Just a heads up that UNI recruit Josh Alber will be wrestling in the extremely tough Super 32 tournament in Greensboro, NC next weekend. He will be wrestling at 126 in a very loaded class including Minnesota recruit Tommy Thorn and several top 100 ranked wrestlers. He finished as a runner-up last year. This tournament ranks with Beast of the East and the Walsh Ironman, so it really shows talent just to place. BTW, there are over 160 kids in this bracket. Good luck Josh...

WIN's most recent high school rankings has Albers ranked #7 at 126 pounds. Tommy Thorn, Minnesota recruit, is ranked #1. It would be great if Josh could knock him off at the Super 32 tournament.

Hmm. The coaches announced two early signers and Josh wasn't one of them. Any idea what the situation is? He would be a great addition to the panther train.

I think that was just a verbal commit.
