Flo's Redshirt Report for 184 197 and HWT

Howard and Bolen are mentioned but Borst is not (surprising ... and wrong!).

184 - Hunter Bolen, Virginia Tech, Sophomore

Bolen was a surprise national qualifier his true freshman season in 2018 (at least to some, perhaps Bolen and the Virginia Tech program thought differently). Bolen was thrust into the lineup after two-time All-American Zach Epperly completed his undergraduate degree and declined to return to campus for his final season of eligibility. Last season, Bolen was able to take a redshirt as David McFadden bumped up and Mekhi Lewis took over 165.

Bolen wrestled up at 184 while redshirting, winning the Hokie and Wolfpack Opens, then placing second at the Southern Scuffle. Bolen's only loss of the season was to Shakur Rasheed in the Scuffle finals.

With the graduation of two-time All-American Zack Zavatsky, Bolen is poised for a breakout season for the Hokies at 184.
Watch Bolen make the Scuffle finals over Lou DePrez of Binghamton:

197 - Cody Howard, Virginia Tech, Freshman
Hokie head coach Tony Robie has continued the trend of success begun under former head coach Kevin Dresser. This has been thanks in large part to bringing in new talent like Cody Howard, who has big shoes to fill after the departure of Tom Sleigh (and NCAA runner-up Jared Haught before him). However, there's little reason to doubt the Hokie coaching staff won't have Howard prepared for the challenge.
