University of Tennessee at Chattanooga wrestling coach Heath Eslinger announced the addition of Corey Mock to the Mocs 2013 recruiting class today.* Mock will transfer to Chattanooga from the University of North Carolina and have two seasons of eligibility remaining, beginning in the fall of 2013.* "Corey fills a big need for us at 165," stated Eslinger.* "We lose a conference champion in Josh Condon, but I think Corey has the ability to step right in and be successful at that weight."
Mock went 62-27 in his first two seasons with the Tar Heels, advancing to the NCAA Championships as a freshman and a sophomore.* He led the Tar Heels with a 36-17 record as a freshman in 2011, finishing third at the ACC Championships.* He was 26-10 last season, including a fifth place showing at the 2012 Southern Scuffle in Chattanooga.
The addition of Mock gives UTC three signees for the 2013 recruiting class.* Chattanooga also inked prep standouts Kevin Cooper (Morning View, Ky.) and Michael Pongracz (Milford, N.J.) to National Letters of Intent in the early signing period.*
