Bell, Krom in All-Star Classic on Sunday
The classic features exhibition matchups between top wrestlers from across the country in each weight division. Last year, Hudson Taylor became the first Terp selected to participate in the event since 1969. It is the first time in school history multiple wrestlers have been invited to the event.
"This is one of the premiere events in our sport," said McCoy. "Having two guys competing is great for our program and a credit to all their hard work. I am looking forward to seeing our guys compete."
Bell will take on No. 4 Daniel Dennis of Iowa, while Krom will match up against No. 2 Nick Gallick of Iowa State.
