Hawkeye freshman phenom Marinelli gears up for trip home to Ohio State

Marinelli is a "Brands type" of guy

Spencer Lee has received a lot of the hype when it comes to "freshman sensations" on the Iowa wrestling team this season, but there's another stud making noise for Tom Brands this season, too: Ohio native Alex Marinelli. On Sunday, the former blue-chip recruit, who chose the Hawks over the Buckeyes, will get his first shot in Columbus. Iowa and Ohio State wrestle at 2:30 P.M. CST on Sunday.
