Other ACC wrestlers highlighted in 125 redshirt report

According to the redshirt report for 125, the ACC could have some serious young talent. Here is the write-up on the new guys for NC State and UNC:

Jakob Camacho, North Carolina State, Freshman
Coming to Raliegh by way of Danbury, Connecticut, Camacho had the most impressive redshirt campaign of any 125-pounder last season. The Nutmegger won The Hokie Open, the Wolfpack Open, the National Collegiate Open, and took third at that illustrious Southern Scuffle.
Camacho's only two losses in 28 matches were to Binghamton's Steve Bulzomi, which Camacho avenged twice, and to Oklahoma State's two-time All-American Nick Piccininni.

Joey Melendez, North Carolina, Freshman
Another stellar redshirt freshman can be found just down Tobacco Road in Tar Heel Country. Melendez is a product of powerhouse Montini Catholic and hit the ground running when he got to Chapel Hill, winning the Pembroke Classic and the Franklin & Marshall Open. Melendez dropped just four matches over the course of the redshirt season.
And if he Melendez were to establish a half-decade long rivalry with his ACC rival in Raleigh, well, we certainly would not object.
