FloWrestling reports that Hunter Bolen of Christiansburg, Virginia committed to Virginia Tech late Monday. Bolen is the fifth-ranked returning wrestler at 160 pounds.
Hunter has two state titles on his resume heading into his senior season and he might well be going for four if he hadn’t broken his wrist in the semi-finals of the state tournament during his freshman year. He placed second at the Beast of the East and FloNationals last season as well as winning that second state championship.
Coach Kevin Dresser continues to build a high-level program in Blacksburg. Coming off a fourth place finish at the NCAA tournament, starting the class of 2017 with Hunter Bolen is another sign the Hokies are moving in the right direction.
