These news came from Berreyesa himself with him writing, “The past five years have been a ride. I am so incredibly thankful for my time spent in Ithaca and the family I have made at @bigredwrestling . I have had my share of highs and lows, but I still have goals I want to achieve. I love the sport of wrestling and can’t wait to take this opportunity. Since I am graduating in May, I cannot continue to compete at Cornell due to Ivy League rules. Every night, I have prayed to God for guidance and wisdom in this decision, and I am excited to announce that I will be pursuing an MBA while using my final year of NCAA eligibility at the University of Northern Colorado!”.
