Today we meet Isaac Jordan, who is looking to continue his family's impressive legacy at Wisconsin.

Isaac Jordan is the latest member of the Jordan family to wrestle for the Badgers. His father, Jim, was a two-time national champion, and three-time All-American, at Wisconsin in the 1980s, and still holds the all-time program record for wins in a career (156). His uncle, Jeff, was a two-time All-American for the Badgers in the 1980s as well, and his older brother, Ben, earned All-America honors last season to close out his UW career.

But, Isaac is certainly an accomplished wrestler in his own right. He was a three-time Ohio state champion at Graham High School in St. Paris, Ohio, and put together an impressive 154-9 career record. That mark included an unblemished 43-0 senior season, a season in which he was ranked among the top high school wrestlers nationally.
