Two NCAA DI Transfers Join 'Topper Wrestling Team

June 28, 2009

Coach Brian Davis has announced the addition of two Division I transfers, Ashtin Primus (University of Missouri) and Dusty Hill (WVU), to the 2009-2010 West Liberty wrestling program.

Primus is a 2006 graduate of Connellsville HS (PA) where he was a 2X State Champion, placing all four years. At Missouri, Primus was a starter as a true freshman for the Tigers at 141 lbs. for a team that finished third in the NCAA Tournament. During his frosh campaign, Primus won 30 matches, 20 of those by way of fall. In 2007-2008 Primus used his redshirt season, and in December 2008 he withdrew from Missouri and returned home to Western PA.

Hill is a 2007 graduate of Wheeling Park HS (WV) where he was a 2X state place winner (2nd & 3rd). Hill utilized his redshirt season in 2007-2008 at WVU. As the 2008-2009 season drew near, Hill had earned himself a starting spot in the Mountaineer line-up by winning WVU's wrestle-off at 184 lbs., but shortly afterwards he suffered a season ending injury.
