COLUMBIA -- While Missouri Football hopes to land Dorial Green-Beckham, the Mizzou Wrestling program recently picked up a commitment from a two-time state champion on Friday. 

Hickman's J'den Cox is only a junior. However, he won state titles as a freshman and a sophomore as he went undefeated in his sophomore season.

Cox is the top ranked wrestler in Missouri's 220-pound class this season. By choosing Mizzou, Cox turned down an opportunity to train at the olympic training center after high school.
