Something to consider, what is his academic status?

I hope he ends up at Iowa because it seems like a good fit for his style and personality. I wonder if he’s fine moving that far away from home though.

It'd be cool to see DeSanto's skills head down to NC State and to watch Tariq Wilson focus on squats and calf raises this summer and fill the vacancy left by Kevin Jack at 141. Though, those two Morris twins are solid producers, too.

I feel like something outside of the Big 10 is the best fit for this kid. When he has to face AA caliber competition match after match I don't think that bodes well for his issues. Regardless if they're medically related or if he's just a punk.

I hope Iowa even though there is zero evidence he is willing to leave SE PA.

I have no problem with Iowa being the bad guy in D1 wrestling, especially if they can win a title in 1-2 years.

Would make everything more interesting.

If Suriano would stay at 125, Rutgers would be a good fit.

Or even a redshirt + move to 141. It might drive him crazy at times, but I think a redshirt year would be ideal.

Anyone but Heil '18

Carlton Hasselrig had a troubled frosh year at Lock Haven. Decided to go home and go D2. I think that worked out ok for him.

 

So DeSanto maybe to Kutztown (about 20 miles) or Millersville (about 30 miles) 

 

Or D3 (Delaware valley, Ursinas, Muhlenberg)  Albright is reight near but they dropped their problem (not that long ago I think)

I kind of want to see him go to Iowa State since Kanen Storr left. However, I really don't know if leaving the area is what's best for him - if living at or close to home wasn't so important, Desanto would probably have committed to a different program coming out of hs. And I really don't know if Iowa State (or Iowa, or Penn State or whatever) can or cannot provide him with the environment and tools to be successful. Discipline and structure will be good, but I'm not sure if tough love and ultimatums will be as effective as close monitoring, reinforcement and coping or de-escalation tools. The coaching staff will have to really work with him and push him in the right way. I hope he finds a good home.

Or the best thing for him could be to have that level of competition regularly...

That means that Suriano is bumping up to 133 and DeSanto is dropping down to 125. Vision Quest 2: Beat the Lee

Iowa fans are still arrogant; it's just that their team isn't as good.

How about Arkansas Little Rock’s first recruit AND he can redshirt next year!

I'll be surprised if he goes to Iowa. Best team  in the country is in state, there's a need in the lineup at 133, and a team the consistently puts a number of guys in the NCAA  finals.  Penn State would be like winning the lottery for this kid.  
 
But I'd rather see him elsewhere.   Cael doesn't really need him and they have a very good thing going over there.    There are plenty of teams who could benefit from DeSanto's talents and who can afford the risk a kid like him brings.     
 
#1 choice Lock Haven Bald Eagles.    One of my favorite teams and a place known as a landing spot for wrestlers looking for a different environment to best fit their needs.   
 
#2 Iowa State.   I love what they are looking to build over there and with the cup board relatively dry, they can start at ground zero.      Bring DeSanto in and get him some structure, some guidance, and some direction.    I'm not entirely clear on what his issues are specifically, but if he's having trouble coping at the time, lets get him a support group.  Lets find him reason to be happy and a sense of purpose.  
 
#3 Arizona State.   Perhaps a change of scenery out west could do him some good.  Jones is a great communicator and they teach great technique over there in sunny Arizona.     Maybe he's just a little depressed with his surroundings.    Have you seen the females at ASU?  Does he like females?    Short leash on the kid if so, don't want him with 5 baby momma by his junior year.     
 
#4 Fresno State.    In keeping with the theme out west, a fresh start at a school getting a fresh start of its own.   
 
 
Wish this kid the best.

It just seems so unlike Cael to bring in a troubled 133 pounder.

Iowa state would be good fit maybe....a bit unsafe but overall good egg school and program. I’m guessing Austin Gomez would be around his weight

Oh man if desanto goes to Iowa, he might become the one of the most hated wrestlers in college next year, and i hope he eats all that up like Gilman did.
