Your "State's" Team at NCAA's

Recommended Posts

How does a team made up of kids FROM your home state look?  Obviously Pennsylvania and Ohio usually are the leaders, but NJ has a strong case this year.

Michigan has lost some high end firepower the past couple of seasons with Gabe Dean and Adam Coon graduating, but we are still well represented:

125:  RayVon Foley (9) seed with (18) Devin Schroder making for a viable backup.  Foley should make the bottom of the podium.

133: Noah Gonser   This (22) seed from Campbell is our only rep, but could win a match or 2 on the backside.

141: Kanen Storr (8) seed.  I would be surprised if he doesn't make the podium.  Ian Parker (17) and Nate Limmex(30) have some bracket busting potential.

149: Jordan Oliver (9) seed.  Yet another guy seeded right on the edge of an AA finish.  However, he has done it before.  Malik Amine barely squeaked in as the (33) seed, but can be a tough out.

157: Alec Pantaleo (4) seed.  Found his way late in the season and would have been seeded higher if not for MONO wrecking the 1st couple of months of his season.  (10) seeded Bleise has legit AA potential.  Logan Parks at (18) could win a couple of matches.

165:  Logan Massa (6) seed should find the podium.  Tyler Morland drew the TOUGHEST possible bracket as the 32 seed.  He would likely have to beat Joe Smith(2xAA), Marinelli(1for1 AA), Viruet, Lewis(Jr World Champ), Wick(3rd place last year and 1for1) or Marsteller(4th last year) and then 2x Champ Joseph.

174:  Myles Amine (4) seed.  All his losses came to Hall and Valencia with a win over (3) seed Lewis.  I expect him to place above his seed.  Devin Skatzka is yet another (9) seed right on the edge of AAing.

184:  Max Dean has a great seed at (5) and should make the quarterfinals.  I don't see him beat Parker, but he should win a couple more on the back side to place near the middle of the podium.

197:  RSFR Brandon Whitman (29) seed is our sole rep and has looked overpowered most of the season.  Will be lucky to win a match on the back side.

285:  Trent Hillger slots in nicely at (7) in his first year of competition.  I think he places to seed.  Colton McKiernan at the (30) seed shows how thin 285 gets after 20 or so.  He draws Steveson first round and likely goes 0-2.

Such is NCAA scoring that Texas would have a slight chance at outscoring that Michigan team with their 4 total qualifiers.

125 - Mueller

157 - Monday

197 - Nickal

285 - Andrews

 

Their chances go up if you count Reenan who wrestled youth through 9th grade in Texas before transferring to Wyoming Seminary in 10th grade.  Obviously Texas wrestling is not in the zip code of Michigan, but Nickal is that good and high all-americans are worth that much.

Someone has to do it:  PA

125:  #3 seed Spencer Lee (SO); returning national champ

133:  #4 seed Mickey Phillipi (FR) 

141:  #6 seed Michael Carr (SO); 2018 R12 

149:  #13 seed Kyle Shoop (JR)

157:  #1 seed Jason Nolf (SR); 2x champ, 3x finalist

165:  #2 seed Vincenzo Joseph (JR); 2x champ

174:  #10 seed Mikey Labriola (FR)

184:  #3 seed Zack Zavatsky (JR); 2018 6th (personal preference: #8 seed Ryan Preisch)

197: #10 seed Tom Sleigh (SR)

285: #4 seed Jordan Wood (SO); 2018 R2

CA is looking best from 157-174; Hokit can be a wild card.


133 - #17 Sean Nickell
149 - #21 Khristian Olivas
157 - #9 Christian Pagdilao (Potential all-american) 
165 - #4 Evan Wick (Returning 3rd)
174 - #3 Zahid Valencia (Defending Champ, 2x all-american)
184 - #30 Dom Ducharme
197 - #16 Josh Hokit
285 - #14 AJ Nevills

edit: Meant to say that the best wrestlers in this lineup can be found at 157-174. CA isn't looking too great this year.

imo- Michigan with 4 - 6 - 4 is better.     

Definitely should have worded that better. I meant CA's lineup looks best around 157-174; MI definitely has a better squad. CA doesn't have a great squad heading to Pittsburgh...

Monday is officially listed as NC on Princeton's roster.

Georgia

125 Sean Russell, Ryan Milhof (withdrew), Alonzo Allen

133 Cody Russell

157 Justin Ruffin

165 Thomas Bullard, Tyler Marinelli

174 Taylor Lujan, Daniel Bullard, Devin Cane

we could’ve done a better job st spreading them out  

At some point the bullards will AA. Lujan and Sean Russell are both fairly likely to AA. Ruffin is going to be really good. Probably won’t place as a true freshman 

Id set the over under at 1.5. We are getting better

Hate to admit it but NJ probably beats PA this year if you just look at the top one in each weight. PA kills everyone else in depth, but top end talent is starting to see more parity.

ALso Hemida 6th at HW. Deprez and Lane both lost in the blood rounds. 

NY had 53 just from the AAs (and most from Cornell):

125:  Arujau 15.5

141: Yianni 20.0

197:  Honis 5.0

285:  Hemida 13.0

 

That's 40.5 points for one school and the same state; PSU had 44 and OSU had 42 in that sub-category.  Iowa had 2.0 points.

 

Pretty sure the winner is Rutgers, whose entire score of 50.5 came from NJ.
