Three-time PIAA state champion, Gavin Teasdale, has decommitted from Iowa, opting to join Cael Sanderson's Penn State national championship squad. Teasdale originally pledged to the Hawkeyes in April 2016 with his friend and training partner Spencer Lee. 

Teasdale who the 2017 PIAA state title at 126-pounds and is ranked the No. 2 recruit in the Class of 2018. His impressive resume on the mat includes Fargo titles and three Pennsylvania PIAA state titles (with a year remaining in high school). He was also the 2016 Junior Freestyle Nationals champion at 120 lbs.

As the nation's No. 2 prospect, Teasdale joins the No. 3 recruit Travis Wittlake and No. 4 Roman Bravo-Young, each of whom have already commited to Penn State.

Obviously, this has created a stir in the already heated rivalry between the Hawkeyes and Nittany Lions. You can read reactions to this recruiting development from fans of both programs at the link below and add your on on the FOS Total Access Board.
