Indianapolis • The NCAA on Wednesday announced 44 at-large selections along with brackets for the 2013 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. All three Utah Valley University wrestlers will enter the tournament unseeded.

Redshirt freshman Jade Rauser (125 pounds) will open his first national tournament against the two-seed and former All-American from Illinois Jesse Delgado, while senior 149-pounder Josh Wilson will take on the one-time All-American from Oklahoma Nick Lester and sophomore heavyweight Adam Fager will begin his tournament run in the pigtail round against Iowa State's Matt Gibson.

No other Wolverines received at-large bids to the NCAA Championships on Wednesday. Despite no other UVU wrestlers making the cut via an at-large selection, three wrestlers from the Western Wrestling Conference did.

The 2013 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships will run March 21-23 at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa.
