FAIRFAX, Va. -- The George Mason wrestling team has added transfer students Patrick Davis and Konbeh Koroma to its roster as officially announced on Tuesday.

Davis, a sophomore transfer from NC State, wrestled as a true freshman at 174lbs for the Wolfpack last season where he finished with a record of 13-14. Davis was a two-time Delaware state champion in 2011 and 2012 and was a fourth place finisher at NHSCA Senior Nationals. He is projected to wrestle at 174lbs. for the Patriots.

"Patrick has been successful at the high school and NCAA Division 1 level," commented Coach Joe Russell. "We are excited for him to compete for George Mason University."

Koroma comes to Mason with sophomore eligibility status from Old Dominion University. The Springfield, Va. native wrestled at Robert. E. Lee High School, placing at the Virginia state meet in 2011. He is projected to wrestle for Mason at 149lbs.

"Having Northern Virginia wrestlers on our team is important for us at George Mason. We want local kids to grow up wanting to be Patriots. We are excited for Konbeh to wear the George Mason uniform."

"We are excited to have these two student-athletes join the team," continued Russell. "Both have worked hard to gain admission to George Mason University and it has been enjoyable to get to know them and see their efforts to become Patriots. We have high hopes for both of them on and off the mat."

Mason returns to competition this Sunday at 5p.m. when the Patriots host the Virginia Military Institute at the RAC.
