Taylor, Ruth, and Brown Set to Wrestle in NWCA All-Star Classic

NCAA Champion and three time All-American wrestler David Taylor announced via Twitter yesterday that he will face Michael Moreno of Iowa State in this year’s National Wrestling Coaches Association All-Star Classic.

Fellow wrestlers Ed Ruth and Matt Brown are confirmed for the NWCA All-Star Classic — which will be held on November 2nd at George Mason Univeristy — but their opponents are yet to be determined. Nico Megaludis, the defending runner-up in the 125-lb. weight class, is unable to compete due to a family wedding on that day.

Moreno placed third in the Big XII and sixth in last year’s NCAA Championships in the 165-lb. weight class, where he is one of three returning All-Americans. Taylor and Moreno have never faced each other.

Last year, Taylor fell to rival Kyle Dake at the NWCA All-Star Classic, 2-1. Megaludis, Andrew Alton, and Quentin Wright also competed in last year’s event, with Megaludis and Alton picking up wins.
