Rutgers wrestling adds upper weight transfer commit from Ohio
Rutgers has added more depth up top.
Max Wright, a two-time Ohio Division 1 state qualifier, committed to the Scarlet Knights on Saturday morning on Twitter. He is expected to arrive on campus this fall and should have five years to wrestle four.
Wright received a commission from the U.S. Air Force Academy after graduating from Delaware Hayes High outside Columbus. He went 10-4 wrestling at 184 and 197 pounds last season for Air Force Prep, according to WrestleStat, but announced in April he was leaving the academy and re-opening his recruitment.
He’ll go from the NFL’s elite to cellar in Cleveland, though the Browns figure to make a significant improvement based on their flurry of personnel moves this offseason. Linebacker was the last position group left untouched by Dorsey when it came to free agency or trades.
Wright is the second transfer Rutgers has brought in this offseason. Former St. Peter’s Prep state champion Christian Colucci is expected to step in as the team’s heavyweight this fall after two years at Lehigh.
In response, an anonymous source told NFL Network that Beckham wouldn’t take the field in 2018 without a new contract. He only has done individual drills in practices thus far because of medical restrictions on his ankle.
It’s been mostly quiet and playing nice on both sides for the last eight weeks Beckham has done a limited number of interviews since before his broken ankle in Week 5 of the season but it will create loud noise in the vacuum if Beckham stays away from East Rutherford for all of June.
