Incoming Jackson Memorial High School senior Kyle Epperly is coming to the Banks.
Jackson Memorial, a former coaching stop for head coach Scott Goodale, competes in the Shore Conference where Epperly has dominated.
In the 2018-19 season, he went 43-4, finished 7th in the state at 195 pounds, finished 4th at Region 7, and won a District 28 title. Epperly had 22 pins as a junior. He’ll enter his senior season with a chance to eclipse the century mark as he currently sits at 84 wins.
Epperly will project at 197 pounder in college for now. Depending upon size, these guys usually will decide between 184 and 197 in college while others could take a redshirt year to really bulk up and wrestle at heavyweight.
Rutgers and Goodale have also kept their eye on top ranked recruit AJ Ferrari and will look to bring him in to headline the 2020 class. Ferrari is expected to make his decision by the end of the month or within the first week of October. His final schools in no particular order are: Rutgers, Penn State, Ohio State, Nebraska, and Oklahoma State.
The Scarlet Knights have done a great job in recruiting the future as they also have their first 2021 commit in Kyonte Hamilton.
Goodale was also just signed to a contract extension, so Rutgers fans can expect this year in and year out.
