TEMPE, Ariz. -- Sun Devil wrestling head coach Zeke Jones announces the team's 10-member incoming class, highlighted by transfers Ali Naser and Jason Tsirtsis.

Naser previously wrestled at 133 lbs. at Fresno City College (2013-15) and is a graduate of Woodland Hills' El Camino Real HS where he was a two-time California state tournament placer.

In the second round of the 2015 US Open, Naser defeated 2012 Olympic bronze medalist Coleman Scott in the second round. He also defeated Missouri's Zach Synon and Rutgers' Scott Delvecchio at 2015 University Nationals.

Tsirtsis, one of two other transfers, brings a wealth of experience and accolades to Tempe, including a 2014 NCAA championship at Northwestern. The two-time Big Ten champion at 149 lbs. was also a 2015 All-American, 2014 Midlands champion, and 2014 Big Ten Freshman of the Year.
