The Rockwall season continues to add to his resume on the mat but so far one of the best wrestlers in the state of Texas doesn’t know where he be next year.

The senior is still uncommitted and is searching for a college to compete at next year. He won the Class 6A 150-pound title in February.

I like to compete and I go to a lot of tournaments; it is not like I’m hiding from anyone. I’m not scared.”
