COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou wrestling program announced Monday that they have added four more student-athletes to next year's incoming class. These four high school standouts - Tim Miklus (Indianola, Iowa), Wood Mancuso (Morehead City, N.C.), Nick Nasenbeny (Plainfield, Ill.), and Chase Brennan (Monett, Mo.) - will supplement a group that already brings with it four state championships and many more national accolades.

"We are excited to add these four to an already titles talented class coming in next year, said Head Coach Brian Smith. "They bring in six state championships with them next year and should bring a lot of talent that adds to an already-competitive practice room. All of these guys coming in next year are excited to join our program and become a part of the Tiger Style culture at Missouri."

Smith's Take: "Chase is a talent Missouri kid who's grown up wanting to be a Tiger his entire life. He's had a very successful high school career where he won the state title three times here over the past four years here in Columbia, so he's been around the town and the program.
