Briar Cliff Wrestling Releases 2018 Recruiting Class

Briar Cliff Wrestling Head Coach Joe Privitere has announced his Charger recruiting class for the 2018-19 season. BC welcomes in 18 wrestlers for next season and will look to follow up on its first GPAC Championship last season after going 7-1 in conference duals.

“I couldn’t be more pleased with how this class finished up. We added guys at each weight that will help us continue to build as a program,” commented Coach Privitere. “Not only from a depth perspective, we feel we brought in guys that we expect to contribute right away. ”

The class has at least one athlete in every weight class with a few hybrids that are between classes and the weight they compete at will be determined in the fall. Twelve states are represented in the recruiting class with Missouri (4), Texas (3) and Arizona (2) being states with multiple athletes heading to the Cliff. Two local products will head to BC with Iowa and Nebraska both having one grappler joining the squad next season.
