Binghamton’s last recruiting class featured a number of New York’s top wrestlers. This year looks like it will be more of the same as the Bearcats secured commitments from Hilton twins Vincent and Anthony DePrez on Wednesday.
Both qualified for the state tournament a year ago, along with younger brother Lou, who made it to Albany as an eighth grader at 120 pounds.
Trips to the state capital have been frequent for Vincent, who has made the podium three times at the Times Union Center, including runner up finishes in 2012 (at 113 pounds) and 2013 (at 138). He nabbed fourth at 103 as a freshman.
In his junior campaign, Vincent picked up 51 victories, with his only losses coming against the state champions in Division I (Nick Kelley) and Division II (Nick Tighe). Both will be his teammates at Binghamton.
Meanwhile, Anthony earned his spot in Albany at 145 pounds in February after compiling a stellar 50-3 mark with 42 bonus point victories.
The twins will be now part of the middleweight future for the Bearcats, likely between 157 and 174 pounds.
An interview with Vincent and Anthony DePrez about their college decision is here.
