PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Brown University wrestling has added TJ Dudley – a 2016 NCAA finalist and three-time NCAA All-American at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln – as the program’s volunteer assistant coach, Brown head coach Todd Beckerman announced on Tuesday.
“TJ was an outstanding wrestler at Nebraska, and we know that he will bring his experience of competing for NCAA championships here to Brown,” Beckerman said. “We look forward to having TJ work closely with our upper weights.”
Dudley placed in the top-eight at 184 pounds at the NCAA Championships as a sophomore, junior, and senior, earning All-American status in all three seasons. He finished as high as second place at 184 pounds at the 2016 NCAAChampionships.
“I am honored and excited to begin working with the Brown wrestling program,” Dudley said. “I would like to thank Coach Beckerman for giving me the opportunity to join a program on the rise.”
A four-time NCAA qualifier (2014-17) and three-time Big Ten placer (2015-17), Dudley twice won Nebraska’s Most Outstanding Wrestler Award (2016 and 2017). The 2016 Nebraska Male Athlete of the Year finished his collegiate career with a 114-31 overall record.
A native of Irmo, S.C., and an All-American at Irmo High School, he concluded his high school career with a 191-17 record. Dudley graduated with a degree in Psychology from Nebraska in 2017.
