Default BJJ to wrestling crossover?

I'm asking this in the wrestling section to see if I can get a few more responses. Please don't delete this, it's not spam, I just needed to ask two different audiences.

So I'm heading off to college next year, I'm 5'10 (high end) and 170 lbs before cutting weight. I've been training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for three years and have had quite a bit of success (IBJJF champion at the age of 17 as well as many other titles won). I'm very good at fighting off my back and submitting opponents, but I have a very fast single leg shot. I also enjoy training without a gi on.

Basically, the school I'm going to is an hour away from the gym I train BJJ at. I don't want to be disloyal to my gym, so I decided that in my absence, I'm going to train a different style of grappling so that when I get back to BJJ, I'll have more dimensions to my game.

I'm attending a NCAA Div. III school and have three questions:

-Is it worth me attempting wrestling (I've wrestled with a couple NCAA and state champion wrestlers, I've been told that I'm hard to takedown and pin, and very good at getting to my feet)?

-What would a Div. III wrestling practice look like? Would I be taught anything? If not, what do I need to learn in order to be successful?

-Would this help my BJJ game? That is the huge reason I'm doing this, I want to come back to BJJ with more weapons in my arsenal and even maybe better conditioning.

Thank you, I need as much help as I can get!
