By Ryan Lewis Published: July 26, 2013

The Golden Flashes wrestling team announced the addition of Michael DePalma, a transfer from Edinboro University, to the roster this week. 

Per the release from Kent State, DePalma will have a chance to compete immediately at 149 pounds. Last year, he was named to the Amateur Wrestling News All-Rookie Team (21-12, four pins) while primarily wrestling at 157 pounds. 

DePalma is the 12th new member of the 2013-14 Golden Flashes and will have three years of eligibility left. 

"With Michael, we feel like we instantly have a guy who can place in the top three at the conference tournament," Head Coach Jim Andrassy said in the release. "If everything goes well and he develops the way we think he can, that probably equals out to another national qualifier."
