113 pounders in College

Recommended Posts

News is that Kurt McHenry is graduating high school early, ending his HS career and enrolling early at Michigan. The plan is to add weight and strength. 

Obviously he is a great wrestler, but what is the history of 113 pounders when they get to college?

Nahshon Garrett won the CA state and National (?) titles at 112 as a senior.  Went 3-2-5-1 in college, so that worked out pretty well.

here are a few guys that wrestled 112 or 113 in the Dapper Dan/Pittsburg wrestling classic and went on to D1 success. (I don't know if that means they actually wrestled that weight their whole senior year or maybe dropped for the event?)

Lizak, Conaway, Hazewinkle, Ott.

Wasn't Robles 112 as a senior?

Going back Jim Martin was 105 as a senior, and placed 4th and 2nd at 118, then champ and 3rd at 126.

Dan Gable won a state title at 112 his senior year of HS then wrestled 130 as a true freshman for Iowa State where he won Midlands over Olympic silver medalist Don Behm I believe..

Really, that's amazing-- if true.

Gable came to the 1966 Midlands, then held at Lyons Township, as an Iowa State freshman with an unbeaten high school record but no collegiate resume. That changed when he defeated Don Behm of Michigan State, a New Trier graduate, in the finals for the 134-pound title.

Gable beat Behm in the semi-finals and Hatta in the finals at 130 lbs.

The great Bobby Weaver. In between wrestling at 118 for Lehigh and AA’ing, I think twice, he represented USA at 105 pounds. 1984 Olympic champ. 

1x AA but highly seeded another year too. For sure a smaller 118, video of him wrestling Gene Mills is pretty crazy the size difference.
