MADISON, Wis. -- Chris Weiler, the redshirt senior from Lehigh University, is headed west to finish out his collegiate career at the University of Wisconsin, head coach Chris Bono announced on Tuesday. Weiler is expected to compete at 184 pounds in the 2020-21 season for the Badgers.
In 2020, Weiler finished second at 184 pounds at the EIWA championship and earned honorable mention All-America honors. The Biglerville, Pennsylvania native also qualified for the 2018 NCAA Championships, finishing just one win shy of All-America honors. He has a career record of 54-28, aiding the Mountain Hawks to three EIWA championships.
"We are excited to get Chris campus," Bono said. "He is a graduate transfer who values education and wrestling. He has a wealth of experience and will be a great addition to our program."
