Spencer Lee tried being coy, but ultimately let it be known that he plans to return to Iowa wrestling for a fifth season.
After some banter about his intentions with The Athletic’s Scott Dochterman on a conference call Thursday, the two-time champion said he expects to take advantage of the extra year of eligibility that came about after last season’s championships were canceled.
“You are very correct. I plan on coming back and competing for the University of Iowa next year and staying another year with my brothers,” Lee said. “I think I owe it to them and I want to be a four-time national champ. Right now, I’ve got to get three so we’ll worry about that right now.”
