Will we see any guys who redshirted/didn’t compete last season win a title?
125 - Glory or Vito, but Lee is a huge favorite
133 - nobody
141 - Yianni maybe. Nick Lee is probably the favorite
149 - if Yianni is up here and Lee isnt, he is a heavy favorite
157 - nobody, although Deakin may not return, Hidlay is moving up, and Delaveccio isn’t coming back. If Carr moves up, who knows who wins this weight. Jacori? Maybe a newcomer has a shot
165 - Wick has a shot, especially with the 2 recent champs moving up and Marinelli having ncaa issues
174 - nobody. Stacked weight.
184 - nobody
197 - Darmstadt or Max Dean have a chance, but I doubt it happens. Amos is in the mix too
285 - nobody. Even if Gable doesn’t come back, there are multiple hvwts that will place ahead of anyone else.
I think Yianni and the 3 197lbers have the only realistic shots.
