Cal Poly Signs five wrestlers, two transfers from Fresno State | San Luis Obispo County News

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Cal Poly wrestling head coach Jon Sioredas has announced the signings of five student-athletes, including a pair of transfers from Fresno State, to either a National Letter of Intent or Financial Aid Agreement.

Two are from California high schools — two-time state meet qualifier Jed Campos of Del Oro High School in Loomis and state place winner Tiger Ortiz of Calvary Chapel High School in Santa Ana.

Abe Hinrichsen, a three-time state placer from Washington Community High School in Washington, Ill., also signed Wednesday.

The pair of Fresno State transfers are Adam Kemp of William Fremd High School in Palatine, Ill., and Lawrence Saenz of Vacaville High School. Both will transfer to Cal Poly in time for Winter Quarter and will be eligible to wrestle in the 2020-21 season as redshirt sophomores.

Fresno State announced on Oct. 16 that it was dropping wrestling at the end of the current academic year due to the financial impacts of COVID-19. The Bulldogs reinstated wrestling in time for the 2017-18 season after an 11-year hiatus.

The signing period for all sports except football opened Wednesday and ends August 1.

Campos placed fifth at 152 pounds in the state finals last February after claiming first place in the CIF-Sac-Joaquin Section Masters Meet. He earned a spot on the Sacramento Bee’s All-Metro First Team and is a two-time CIF-Sac-Joaquin Section division champion. Campos also qualified for the state meet in 2019 following a fifth-place Masters Meet finish. He is projected to wrestle at 165 pounds at Cal Poly.
