Virginia Tech's Wrestling busy recruiting weekend to end September is already proving fruitful as the Hokies landed a commitment from 2025 top 60 overall wrestler Ryan Burton.

Burton is ranked as the #58 overall wrestler in the 2025 class by FloWrestling including in the top 10 at his weight class. The standout from New York state had plenty of significant interest including from Rutgers, Maryland, Princeton, Bucknell, and more.
