Rider Signs Wert

LAWRENCEVILLE-J.R. Wert of Christiansburg, Virginia, a senior at Christiansburg High School, has signed a national letter of intent to further his education and wrestling career at Rider University, Rider Associate Head Coach John Hangey announced.

Currently ranked fifth in the nation (Flo Wrestling) and 10th by InterMat at 120 pounds, Wert is a two-time Virginia State Champion.

"We are very excited about JR deciding to continue his education and wrestling career at Rider University," Hangey said.  "He is a premier recruit for our program at a weight class that we needed to continue moving forward.  JR is the type of recruit that can compete on a national level immediately and we are looking forward to working with him."

Wert was a Flo Nationals champion and is ranked among the top 55 recruits in the nation by both Flo Wrestling and InterMat.

Rider (2-0) is coming off a third place finish at the Keystone Classic and hosts cross-town rival Princeton University December 1.
