Jamestown College wrestling coach C.J. Campbell has landed three more recruits, including one from North Dakota.
Dickinson’s Ryan Yates has signed a letter of intent with the Jimmies. He’s joined by Vincent Cancelmo and Tucker Davison.
Yates, a 2011 DHS graduate, did not wrestle this past season, but was a state place winner for the Midgets in 2012.
“I am pleased to have signed Ryan to the Jamestown College men’s wrestling team,” Campbell said. “I am glad that we could help inspire Ryan to get back in to the sport that he loves and has excelled in. We expect great things from Ryan in the years to come.”
He is the son of Wayne and Nancy Yates and plans to study nursing at JC.
Cancelmo comes to JC from East Lyme, Conn. He earned all-Eastern Connecticut Conference in wrestling and football, placing third at 215 pounds in Class L. He also earned all-state honors.
“I am happy to have added Vincent to our roster for the coming season,” Campbell said. “Vinny is a great wrestler from the state of Connecticut.
“The northeast is very saturated with college wrestling programs and opportunities for talented wrestlers, so we are honored that Vinny has chosen to come to Jamestown College. I look forward to what he has to offer.”
Cancelmo plans to major in physical therapy at JC.
Davison, a native of Dayton, Ore., is a two-time place winner in the Oregon Collegiate State Wrestling Tournament, three-time freestyle state placer and a two-time Greco state placer for Davison High School.
Davison was a member of the National Honor Society, travel club and Relay for Life.
“I am glad to have signed Tucker to the Jamestown College wrestling team,” Campbell said. “He is a bright kid and a talented wrestler.
“I am eager to see what type of impact he is able to make for us.”
Davison plans to major in exercise science at JC.
