I know losing Cenzo and Hall is massive but weight by weight I see them being a little better next year.
125- (PLUS) Howard is a true blue chip who will be the first non-walk on who stays at PSU 125 lb since Suriano
133- (EVEN) the weight is tougher next year w/ Fix, Micic and maybe Suriano returning but Gross will be gone. RBY is a top-4 guy
141/149- (PLUS) I'm assuming Nick Lee stays at 141 and that Yianni goes up. It's also possible Beau Bartlett steps in and Nick moves up but Bartlett is probably an improvement on Verk
157- (PLUS) A full and healthy season of Berge is a definite improvement
165- (MINUS) Cenzo will be missed but Joe Lee is no slouch. Next year will be his 3rd in the room so he's not your typical redshirt freshman
174- (MINUS) This is a minus but maybe not much of one. Starocci has been nothing short of a hammer this year and seems to be fully embracing the "PSU way". They say he was humbled in the room when he started this year but it seems to have made him hungrier and stronger
184- (PLUS) Brooks is rounding into a top competitor, Zahid will be gone and this weight will be wide open. Dean coming back will be a challenge but Brooks was more a more highly touted prospect
197- (PLUS) Beard will be an improvement over the injured Shak. He'd almost definitely be an improvement this year but the decision has been made to hold him back
HWT- (PLUS) Greg/Daniel Kerkvleit is a pretty big upgrade over Nevills. He bumped up and tested Gable in HS, he should definitely AA
So there are six weights that should see an improvement while only two negatives and one of them is Starocci who will be at 174 which is seeing a mass exodus of graduates.
