COLLEGE PARK, Md. - University of Maryland wrestling head coach Kerry McCoy announced today the signing of three recruits for the 2010-11 season.

Frank Goodwin of Arundel high school in Maryland, Mark Hartenstine of Easton high school in Pennsylvania, and Spencer Myers of Selinsgrove high school in Pennsylvania have all officially pledged to becoming Terrapins.

The Terps got much needed help at 133 and 141 pounds, as senior All-Americans Steven Bell (133) and Alex Krom (141) are in their final year of eligibility.

Goodwin is ranked No. 5 by Intermat in the 130-pound high school division, and is expected to wrestle at 133 for Maryland. He finished second this year in folkstyle at National Preps, third in Greco-Roman at the Fargo Junior Nationals, and sixth in freestyle, also at the Fargo Junior Nationals.

Hartenstine, the No. 12 ranked wrestler in the 140-pound high school division, is expected to wrestle at 141 for the Terps. He has won four championships while in high school, all while wrestling folkstyle. Hartenstine's titles came in 2008 at Manhiem, the National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA) Open Nationals, and the NHSCA Sophomore Nationals. He also won a Reno TOC title in 2007.

Myers comes in at No. 3 in the 215-pound division and will wrestle at heavyweight for the Terps. He finished second at the 2009 NHSCA Junior Nationals and second at the Pennsylvania state tournament. Myers has won 93 percent of his matches over the past two seasons, going 42-2 as a junior in 2008-09 and 38-4 as a sophomore in 2007-08.
