  1. It's 100 percent TRUE that "if Shields did, in fact return to 157 lbs, I THINK he would have to be considered the favorite to win the 2020 NCAA championship at that weight" so it's actually your comment that "isn't true at all". But please continue on with your anger based comments responding to comments by others taken completely OUT OF CONTEXT. By all means.........continue on your path. And I will choose to add you to my IGNORE list so I won't have to read anything more from you.
  2. You will notice I said " It won't be decided for several more months" so any comments on this are nothing but conjecture at this point. You are certainly entitled to your conjecture just as I am.
  3. It won't be decided for several more months what Arizona State's lineup will be for 2019-2020 BUT I don't think the above will be their lineup. It's really difficult to say what it will be at this point as there are a number of things that just haven't been determined yet. BUT I think Courtney's a lock at 125 lbs and Josh Kramer and Cory Crooks will be the starters at 133 & 141 lbs. Also I think there is a possibility that Josh Shields could drop back down to 157 lbs (where he was until this past season) and that would give ASU Shields at 157 lbs, A. V at 165 lbs and Z. V. at 174 lbs, Norfleet at 184 lbs and Jacob Good at 197 lbs. IF Shields did, in fact, return to 157 lbs, I think he would have to be considered the favorite to win the 2020 NCAA championship at that weight as he's defeated all of the top returners at that weight class in the past.
  4. It will be interesting to see who ends up being Stanford's starter at 133 lbs this season. Personally I think it will end up being either Dalton Young or Brandon Kier . This is how I see Stanford's lineup for 2019-2020 (just my opinion as of this moment in time): 125 lbs - Gabe Townsell - 4th year Senior - 3 time NCAA qualifier 133 lbs - Dalton Young - RS Sophomore OR Brandon Kier - 4th year Senior 141 lbs - Real Woods - RS Freshman - 22-1 last season at 141 lbs while being redshirted 149 lbs - Require van der Merwe - RS Junior - 2019 PAC 12 champ at 149 lbs - 2019 NCAA qualifier 157 lbs - Dominick Mandarino - True Junior OR Tyler Eischens - RS Freshman 165 lbs - Shane Griffith - RS Freshman - 25-2 last season at 165 lbs while being redshirted 174 lbs - Jared Hill - RS Junior - Placed third at 165 pounds at the 2019 Pac-12 Championships OR Foster Karmon - RS Sophomore 184 lbs - Judah Duhm - True Junior - 2019 Runner-up at 184 pounds at the Pac-12 Championships 197 lbs - Nathan Traxler - RS Junior - 2019 PAC 12 champ at 197 lbs - 2 time NCAA qualifier (Round of 12 in 2019) 285 lbs - Hadyn Maley - RS Sophomore - 2019 Runner-up at the Pac-12 Championships - 2019 NCAA qualifier I think this lineup for Stanford for 2019-2020 would be VERY competitive with Arizona State's lineup and a few months ago I thought ASU would have to be favored to win the PAC 12 in 2020. Now I think this lineup for Stanford would beat ASU and allow Stanford to repeat as PAC 12 champs.
  5. I'm sure you are right about that. Dalton Young, however, was the most recent Stanford wrestler listed at 141 lbs on the updated roster who has competed at 133 lbs. Young last competed at 133 lbs at the 2019 Southern Scuffle on January 1st. The only other Stanford 141 lb'er who has competed at 133 lbs (in college) is Brandon Kier and he last competed at 133 lbs back in November of 2017. True Freshman Fabian Santillan competed at 138 lbs as a Senior in H.S. And his weight class has gone from 113 lbs in 2015-2016, 120 lbs in 2016-2017, 126 lbs in 2017-2018 to 138 (12 lbs increase) in 2018-2019. P.S. 141 and 157 both have a slew of guys at those two weight classes for Stanford (according to their updated roster).
  6. Also it appears that two Stanford underclassmen wrestlers who were on the 2018-2019 roster are not on the 2019-2020 roster. Namely Brandon Dallavia who was listed as a RS Sophomore last season at 165 lbs. Dallavia went 7-2 last season for Stanford at 165 & 174 lbs. (He was 5-0 at 174 lbs & 2-2 at 165 lbs) and Austin Flores (184 lbs) who was listed incorrectly on the 2019 Stanford team roster as a Senior. He was, in fact a RS Junior last season. Flores was 6-5 last season at 184 lbs for Stanford. I had Dallavia penciled in as the likely starter for the upcoming season at 174 lbs. Have to wonder why he's no longer on their roster.
  7. https://gostanford.com/roster.aspx?path=wrestling&roster=1731&sort=weight First thing I noticed on the newly updated roster is that Dalton Young, who has been projected to be the starter for Stanford this season at 133 lbs., is listed at 141 lbs. And there are only two Stanford wrestlers listed at 133 lbs. That being Anthony Le (True Junior) who has a career record at Stanford of 10-17 in the last two seasons and Luciano Arroyo (True Freshman) According to this newly updated Stanford wrestling team roster the Stanford wrestling team for the 2020 season will be: 125 lbs Gabriel Townsell - 4th year Senior - 19-12 last season at 125 lbs - Place 3rd at 2019 PAC 12 tournament - Three time NCAA qualifier Logan Ashton - True Freshman - 2019 NHSCA Senior national champion - 2 time Georgia H.S.

  8. Seeing as this young man is currently living in Arizona - with his relatives - I would think he'd be, at the very least, more interested in wrestling in college for Arizona State.
  9. The only projected heavyweight mentioned in the Cal Poly 2019 recruiting press release from last May was Victor Jaquez of Bellarmine Prep. And Jaquez competed at the 2019 California State tournament at 220 lbs but did not place. He went 3-2 at the 2019 CA State tournament and lost his last match by Default. He won his first two matches and then got pinned by the guy who ended up in 8th place at 285 lbs at the 2019 CA State tournament, i.e., Kwabena Watson of Edison H.S. So it would make sense that Cal Poly would look to add another heavyweight.
  10. I had not seen his Instagram page. Thanks for mentioning it here. Looks - to me - as if he will be at Cal Poly judging by his " Cal Poly SLO ‘23" statement, i.e., he plans to be a Cal Poly SLO graduate in 2023. I HAVE to think this is for wrestling - not for football. Yet there is no word of this on the Cal Poly wrestling website. And Jeffus was not mentioned (at all) in the Cal Poly 2019 recruiting class story that was released on May 16, 2019: https://www.gopoly.com/sports/wrest/2018-19/releases/20190516oqlk7v
  11. How many 4 time CA State champions have there been? And which of them haven't faired well at the DIV I NCAA level? I checked the 247Sports Football database and there is no listing at all for Jeffus so I doubt he signed to play football unless it was at a lower level (below Div I that is). I would have to think his collegiate athletic area would have to be wrestling. Yet when I have searched the internet there is no mention of him signing anywhere. P.S. The large scar on his cheek (71 stitches) was the result of an encounter with barbed wire when he was 9 years old and riding a dirt bike. https://www.frontrowpreps.com/posts/is-jeffus-the-toughest-heavyweight-in-the-section-hes-got-the-scar-to-prove-it
  12. One newspaper article on Jeffus - after he upset # 14 ranked (Nationally) Nicholas Villareal in the 2019 CA State championship match - mentioned that "Jeffus has applied to multiple colleges and been accepted into pretty much all of them including Cal Poly SLO, San Diego State, and UC Davis." Cal Poly has a wrestling program and a football team. San Diego State has no wrestling team but does have a football team. U.C. Davis also has a football team but no wrestling team (not anymore at least).
  13. Of these 14 California State champs from 2019 the ones I'm most curious about are: 1. Michael Jeffus (285 lbs) since it's now July and there is still no word on where he's headed for college and for which sport (and he was a H.S. Senior in 2019). It's weird that there's been no word (as far as I've been able to find) on this since most colleges start their year off in August (next month). 2. Jesse Vasquez (138 lbs) as he is already a three time California State champion and will be going for # 4 next season. Yet his recruitment appears to be wide open - even tho he's listed as an Ohio State verbal (he is not) by the Cal Grappler website.
