Metcalf slated for rematch with Jenkins

Despite a last-minute switch, two-time national champion Brent Metcalf will still wrestle on the U.S.S Intrepid today during the 2010 Beat the Streets Gala in New York.

Metcalf, originally slated to face North Carolina State’s Darrion Caldwell, will wrestle former Penn State grappler and junior world freestyle champion Bubba Jenkins in the main-event bout tonight.

According to a release, Caldwell again tweaked his shoulder during a training session on Monday, an injury that kept him from the collegiate mat during the 2009-10 campaign.

Cornell freshman and 141-pound NCAA champion Kyle Dake was also scheduled to wrestle Metcalf, but he was recently ruled out for undisclosed reasons.

Historically, the senior Hawkeye hasn’t had much trouble with Jenkins, who left Cael Sanderson’s Nittany Lion squad last season and will compete for Arizona State next fall.

Metcalf beat Jenkins in 2008 to claim his first national title in St. Louis and defeated him a second time in the Big Ten championship finals in 2009 in State College, Pa.
