  1. According to this article on the ASU wrestling website Intermat has ranked ASU's 2021 recruiting class # 2 in the nation behind only Penn State. Also noticed that - according to this article - Fresno State transfer Kyle Parco is listed as 149 lbs (not 141 lbs). https://thesundevils.com/news/2021/5/12/wrestling-off-season-chess-moves-gain-three-for-2021-22.aspx So the probable lineup for ASU for 2022 would appear to me to be: 125 - Courtney 133 - McGee 141 - Vasquez 149 - Parco 157 - Teemer 165 - A. Valencia 174 - Munoz 184 - Belshay (if he is returning) 197 - Norfleet 285 - Schultz
  2. It's just sad and pathetic that SOME people feel the need to try to tear down young men who just committed themselves to ANYTHING these days. Sad and pathetic indeed.
  3. Jaren Powell of Liberty Christian in Northlake, TX - 2 time Texas State champ. Ranked as a 4 star wrestler by Trackwrestling. Projected at either 141 or 149 lbs for college https://www.trackwrestling.com/membership/ViewProfile.jsp?TIM=1620767173661&twSessionId=uyaxvduxno&twId=545341096 Caleb O'Hara of Anchorage, Alaska - 2 time Alaska State champ. Ranked as a 3 star wrestler by Trackwrestling. Project at 125 lbs in college https://www.trackwrestling.com/membership/ViewProfile.jsp?TIM=1620767523239&twSessionId=uyaxvduxno&twId=468264132
  5. I am not forgetting that BUT......................whether or not each individual will choose to utilize that extra year or not has not yet been determined. So you can't really count that extra year just yet.
  6. Silly me I was under the impression that this was a thread for discussions about who has most recently entered the transfer portal. But looking at the nitwittery that's been taking place here recently I'm very clearly just plain wrong about that.
  7. I don't see anything remotely like a "logjam" here A. Courtney and McGee will both be RS Seniors next season (they were both RS JR's last season). Chlebove will be a RS Sophomore - so will Belton and so will Parco. B. The other two weight classes will work themselves out later - as per usual on dozens and dozens and dozens of teams. C. My only question is the same question I asked earlier. That being will Nick Suriano be a member of the ASU wrestling team next season? Throw him into the mix and then you will have a mini-logjam so to speak. But even if he is on the ASU team next season it will all get sorted out.

  9. The decision is about 11 Stanford sports. Not just wrestling. Anyone who thought this would be done quickly hasn't been paying much attention about Stanford's administration and how they do things.
  10. That should help Oregon State quite a bit. Their heavyweight last season left a lot to be desired. The addition of Traub should really round out their lineup for 2022.
  11. I'd much rather be referred to as "internet tough guy" than be referred to as the internet fool who isn't man enough to admit when he is blatantly and obviously wrong.

  13. What I noticed in that article is the mention of Pratt J.C.'s 125 lb'er Michael Spangler. He completely dominated the # 2 seed at 125 lbs and he was a Sophomore this season. And he was also mentioned as the returning national champion. I have to wonder which D-1 school will be adding him to their roster for 2022. Pratt J.C. is in Kansas btw.
  14. And three of the top six teams were from out West (Clackamas # 1 - Western Wyoming # 2 and North Idaho # 6): https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Wrestling/Features/2021/April/22/Clackamas-wins-third-straight-NJCAA-national-title
  15. The same Zane Coleman who has wrestled exactly ONE time in TWO years at Arizona State - and lost 7-1 in that one match to the Little Rock starter (Triston Wills) this past season?
  16. IF Teemer were to move up to 165 then WHO would replace him at 157 lbs. I don't see anyone on the ASU roster who could fill the spot at 157 lbs and be competitive nationally at that weight class. Also if Belshay is in fact no longer in the transfer portal (and expected back for 2022) and IF Teemer moves up to 165 lbs you have a mini log jam so to speak. Teemer - 165 Valencia - 174 Munoz & Belshay at 184 ??
  17. Their interim head coach is now officially the new head coach at Cal State University at Bakersfield https://gorunners.com/news/2021/4/21/smith-sheds-interim-tag-named-wrestling-head-coach.aspx
  18. That was what I was thinking as well. He was an AA at 149 lbs this last season. I don't see him going back down to 141 lbs again. 125 - Courtney 133 - Suriano or McGee (depends on IF Suriano does in fact join ASU) 141 - McGee IF Suriano is at 133 lbs or Chlebove or another transfer 149 - Parco & Vasquez 157 - Teemer 165 - Valencia 174 - Munoz 184 - ???? 197 - Norfleet 285 - Schultz
  19. Clearly YOU are someone who never lets things like FACTS get in the way of your ignorance. Thanks for making that very clear here. https://thesundevils.com/news/2021/3/20/wrestling-notches-podium-finish-at-2021-ncaa-tournament.aspx
  20. Late last month a poster here indicated that Nick Suriano - if he does compete collegiately next season - will be at Arizona State. Since he's not going to be involved in the Olympic Trials has there been any update on whether or not he will, IN FACT, be a member of the 2022 Arizona State wrestling team? And if so at which weight class? As I understood it he was trying to qualify for the Olympic trials at 57 kgs (125 lbs) and of course ASU has 2021 NCAA runner-up Brandon Courtney at 125 lbs as a Senior next season. And at 133 lbs ASU has Michael McGee who placed 6th at 133 lbs at the 2021 NCAA championships. McGee will also be a Senior next season. If Suriano is added to the mix does that mean McGee moves up to 141 lbs? He just moved up from 125 lbs a year ago up to 133 lbs this past season. Just wondered if anyone has any thoughts on how this might all shake out if Suriano is IN FACT going to be on the ASU team for next season.
  21. Extremely unlikely. As was posted here roughly one week ago the top three transfer schools for Griffith were listed as North Carolina, Michigan and Penn State. Secondly, as was also posted last week, there are ongoing talks about reinstating all 11 sports that Stanford had chosen to drop last summer (including wrestling). So the status of Stanford wrestling - right now - is undetermined. Bottom line is the Stanford wrestling program MAY or MAY NOT be reinstated but if not the three most likely transfer schools for Griffith appear to be North Carolina, Michigan and Penn State.
  22. Maybe he just got tired of living in the land of fruits and nuts.
  23. I just checked WrestleStat's projected lineup for Arizona State for 2022 and they now have Kyle Parco listed as ASU's projected starter at 141 lbs (with Jesse Vasquez at 149) and Valencia at 165 lbs. Biggest hole in this projected ASU lineup for 2022 is 184 lbs as Austin Clayton (not Cade Belshay) is listed as ASU's starter at 184 lbs.
