After missing the 2019-20 season due to injury, Virginia Tech wrestling’s Korbin Myers, a three-time qualifier for the NCAA championships, has been granted a medical redshirt for the lost year and will be eligible to wrestle in the 2020-21 season. 

The 133-pounder adds to the team’s depth at the lower weight classes, which already include last season’s 133-pound starter Collin Gerardi, 125-pound starter Joey Prata and redshirt freshman Sam Latona

A transfer from Edinboro University, Myers qualified for the 2019 NCAA Championships after placing third at the 2019 ACC Championships. He went 20-10 in his first season in maroon and orange and earned ACC Wrestler of the Week honors in January of 2019. 

Prior to transferring to Tech, Myers was a two-time NCAA qualifier and Eastern Wrestling League champion at Edinboro. He came to Blacksburg after going 74-34 with the Fighting Scots.
