Hokies rake in top-10 recruiting class
Tech's class ranked the ninth-best in the country by WIN

BLACKSBURG - Virginia Tech has landed yet another top-10 wrestling recruiting class, according to Wrestling Insider Newsmagazine (WIN), as the magazine has the Hokies' class ranked ninth in the country. This is the fifth-straight national top-11 class pulled in by head coach Kevin Dresser and his staff.

The Hokies' class features two pair of standouts from the same schools: two-time state champs Matt Stephens (165/174) and Nick Brascetta (141/149) from Graham High in St. Paris, Ohio, and three-time champs Bubba Scheffel (174) and Lex Ozias (141/149) from Southern Garrett in Oakland, Md.

Tech's class also includes three-time Colorado state champ Austin Gabel (184/197).

Dresser will announce his spring signing class, as well as a handful of walk-ons who have already signed their offers of admission to Tech, later this week.
