Kevin Dresser Big 12 Championships

Iowa State Head Coach Kevin Dresser watches a match at the Big 12 Championships on March 8 inside the Bank of Oklahoma Center in Tulsa.

Iowa State has added a new recruit to the class of 2021, Jack Gaukel.

Gaukel is a three-time Iowa High School State semi-finalist.

He has finished as runner up in the three state tournaments he's been to.

In his junior year at Sergeant Bluff-Luton wrestling in the 152-pound weight class, Gaukel had a 53-2 record and finished second in the state tournament, losing in the state final to West Liberty's Will Esmoil 3-2.

He also only had two losses in his sophomore season, finishing 50-2 and second in the state tournament, losing the 132 state final in a sudden 3-1 victory for Clear Lake's Eric Faught.

Gauckel had a 44-8 record in his freshman year and lost to Albia's Aden Reeves by pinfall in the first period in the 120 state final.
