BLOOMINGTON, Ind.-- IU head coach Angel Escobedo has announced the addition of graduate transfer Garrett Hoffman.
Hoffman, a native of Cogan Station, Pa., comes to Indiana after four years at Bucknell. At Bucknell he majored in Managing for Sustainability with a minor in Philosophy. Hoffman graduated Cum Laude with a 3.56 GPA.
Hoffman started off his collegiate career strong, as he qualified for the NCAA Championships at 184 pounds.
"We're excited to add Garrett Hoffman to our program," IU head coach Angel Escobedo said. "An NCAA qualifier as a true freshman, Garrett brings experience and leadership to the program. Garrett will wrestle 197lb this season and is ready to put in the work needed to end his career as an All-American."
He earned the Bucknell Freshman of the Year Award after posting a record of 18-16 in his first collegiate season.
Prior to Bucknell, Hoffman tallied a 167-19 record at Montoursville Area High School. He was a three-time state medalist, including a finalist as a senior in 2016.
At Indiana Hoffman will be attending the Kelley School of Business in an executive degree program for business management.
"I saw how passionate the coaches were about the program and their vision for the future of IU wrestling," Hoffman said. "It showed me that they truly cared about their athletes as more than just athletes and have a great defined plan for success. They are building something special at IU and that's something I want to be a part of and hopefully help pave the way for their future success."
