CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The incoming Virginia wrestling recruiting class has been ranked as the eighth best nationally by WIN Magazine.
The class consists of nine student-athletes: Tyler Askey (Newnan, Ga.), Greg Bacci (Devon, Pa.), TJ Miller (Medford, N.J.), Emilio Martinez (Platteville, Colo.), Drew Hull (Gasport, N.Y.), Andrew Atkinson (Lynchburg, Va.), Addison Knepshield (Ford City, Pa.), Richie Robertson (Maple Heights, Ohio), Will Rupp (Alexandria, Va.) and Alex Uhre (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.). UVa also has added a transfer from Penn State, heavyweight Collin Campbell (Roxboro, N.C.).
"Once again I am really excited about what my staff and I were able to do with this class," Virginia head coach Steve Garland said. "My assistants always work hard on this front, and this class is evidence of their labor. This high recruiting ranking most importantly honors a group of kids that have worked really hard and deserve this type of praise. We are looking forward to working with this group and helping them through the next phase of their life."
Askey (165/174 pounds) was a four-time Georgia state champion. He also was a high school national champion and took second at the Flowrestling nationals.
