Cruz has earned the #1 seed so far. Hes' the returning champ and officially undefeated (all star match doesn't count against record). He's been crushing everybody he's faced in the regular season so far.
Frankly I don't think Tomasello has wrestled enough this year to earn a seed, despite his past credentials.
If he goes undefeated, he will be 8-0 going into Post season, so I have to assume he will go to an open or two to double that or so. He could go into NCAAs around 20-0, with wins over Lizak, Lee, and Suriano plus Top 10 Martin and Fauz.
He would be the #1 seed.
I am not all that confident that happens.
I’m not even sure if he goes undefeated in his next two matches (Lee, Lizak) and I’m a huge NATO fan. Those are tough matches when you are peaking, let alone when you are wrestling your 2nd and 3rd matches after an injury. NATO has had some problems getting out in the past and is going against possibly the two best riders in the weight class.
Combine that with potentially some cardio issues due to him coming off of injury and cutting hard, and he could feasibly lose both.
