Graham senior David Taylor has been granted his release from Iowa State.

According to Taylor: “The recruiting process begins again.”

Taylor, a four-time state champion and five-time national champion, was granted his release from Iowa State on Tuesday.

Taylor originally committed to the Cyclones and then-head coach Cael Sanderson last year. But on April 17 Sanderson left Iowa State to accept the head coaching job at Penn State.

Other schools Taylor considered before committing and signing with the Cyclones included Ohio State and Oklahoma State.

“I am open to anywhere,” Taylor said. “I am going to take some time to evaluate all of my options. I’m pretty sure I will visit Penn State and Ohio State.”

Last week Taylor was named the 2009 winner of the prestigious Dave Schultz High School Excellence National Award. The honor – bestowed by the National Wrestling Hall of Fame – is the highest a high school wrestler can earn.
