Preliminary Cal State Bakersfield preview for 2021

Recommended Posts

CAL STATE UNIVERSITY AT BAKERSFIELD


The Cal State University at Bakersfield wrestling team has finished in 3rd place at the annual PAC 12 wrestling tournament three of the last four years.  At the 2020 PAC 12 tournament Bakersfield wrestlers won 2 of the 10 weight classes - specifically Russell Rohlfing at 149 lbs and Joshua Loomer at 184 lbs.  However Rohfling was a RS Senior in 2020 and will not be returning for 2021.  Loomer, on the other hand, was only a RS Sophomore in 2020, and will be a RS Junior for the 2021 season.  The Roadrunners also had two wrestlers who placed 3rd at the 2020 PAC 12 tournament.  That being Wyatt Gerl at 157 lbs and Jarrod Snyder at 285 lbs.  But like the two CSUB 2020 PAC 12 champions one of those two was a RS Senior and will not return for 2021 (Gerl).   However Snyder will be a RS Senior for 2021.

=============================

The probable lineup for Cal State Bakersfield's wrestling team for the 2021 season is as follows: (Returning Starters listed in Bold print).  Of couse this is all subject to change as some wrestlers may move up (or down) from their present weight class and there may be transfers involved which would affect this probable lineup in the next few months.  I have listed each weight class (below) by each wrestler's WrestleStat ranking.

All rankings are from WrestleStat - CORRECTIONS ARE WELCOME

Excellent job. Two questions or points. The heavyweights name is actually Brayden Ray. Also, can Cardwell make 174?

Thanks for the correction regarding Brayden Ray.  I'll correct it.  I always know when I try to put something this long together there is ALWAYS going to be at least one mistake.  Which is why actively invite corrections.

As to Cardwell - he competed last season at 184 lbs last November and then bumped up to 197 lbs (and did pretty well).  That's why I listed him at 184 lbs and at 197 lbs.  I did not list him at 174 lbs.

I could see Oregon State jumping CSUB in 2021 for third place.  As Oregon State returns all ten 2020 starters and they also get back their 2019 starter at 157 lbs (Hunter Willits) as well.  I don't see Cal Poly doing that - jumping both CSUB and Oregon State for 3rd place in 2021.  Cal Poly IS improving but they still have a very long way to go IMO.

I know how you feel. Only reason I even knew was my son was at a tournament that he was at and I heard him come up to the announcer and tell him his name was not Ray Braden but Braden Ray, LOL.

Love these Pac-12 previews, thanks for putting this together.

Not wrestler related but it looks like assistant coach Chad Hanke won't coming back next year for Bakersfield.  Any word on who will be replacing him?
