WVU Wrestling Class Ranked No. 24
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (July 7, 2009)– West Virginia University’s 2009
wrestling recruiting class has been tabbed No. 24 in the nation by
“It’s always nice to be recognized with the best teams in the
country,” said assistant coach Greg Jones. “While they are a
talented group of wrestlers, there is a lot of work to be done for them
to reach their goals of being national champions. Coach (Craig)
Turnbull, coach (Danny) Felix and I are excited to get them on campus
and continue the proud tradition of Mountaineer wrestling.”
The Mountaineers’ 2009 class consists of Branko Busick (HWT/Weirton,
W.Va.), Cameron Gallaher (149/ Grafton, W.Va.), Brandon Loro
(149/Springfield, Pa.), Mac Mancuso (197/Holy Spirit, N.J.), Nathan
Pennesi (125/Greater Latrobe, Pa.), Brandon Williamson (HWT/Greenwich,
Conn.) and Shane Young (125/Jeannette, Pa).
WVU is the only Eastern Wrestling League program to be ranked in the
Top 25 rankings. Oklahoma State, on the strength of five top 100
recruits, along with some talented transfers, is rated No. 1.
Turnbull’s wrestling program completed another solid campaign in 2009
by placing second at the EWL championships and sending five competitors
to NCAAs. West Virginia placed 47th at nationals with seven team points
and had a solid 8-4-2 dual match record in helping Turnbull secure his
250th career victory at WVU.
