Projected Lineups 2014-15

Recommended Posts

My best guess for Michigan:

 

125 - Conor Youtsey

133 - Rossi Bruno

141 - Steve Dutton (Zac Hall redshirt)

149 - Cam Jackson/Angelo Latora/Alec Pantaleo

157 - Brian Murphy

165 - Taylor Massa

174 - Garrett Sutton/Davonte Mahomes

184 - Domenic Abounader/Max Huntley

197 - Max Huntley/Domenic Abounader

Hwt - Adam Coon

 

They're solid at nearly every weight. 149 and 174 are a bit unknown. I suspect Huntley is going back to 197.

What about Sean Boyle?

He was a senior this year.

 

I think he took a redshirt last year.

I have no insight into the Altons, but if weight cutting is part of the reason they're gassing (and that's a big if), it might be profitable to have them move up. In which case, you'd have:

 

125 - Megaludis

133 - Gulibon

141 - Retherford

149 - Beitz

157 - A. Alton

165 - D. Alton

174 - Brown

184 - Phipps/McCutcheon

197 - McIntosh

285 - Lawson/Gingrich

 

The Altons are the kiss of death at this point -- just good enough to take a starting spot, but not disciplined or conditioned enough to make a mark in intercollegiate competition.

"Lehigh could be sneaky good next season

125- Cruz (7th NCAA's)

133- Beckman (6th NCAA's)

141- Cruz (2013 EIWA Champ, NQ) or Gardner (NQ)

149- Minotti (6th NCAA's)

157-?

165-?

174- Riddick (R12 NCAA's)

184- Brown (3rd at Midlands this year, Redshirted, NQ)

197- Bollich or Diekal

285- Wessel (NQ)

Could have 6 AA's and 8 NQ's"

 

My 2 cents on the Engineers:

125: Parker (Cruz RS; yes, they appear to plan on RS a returning AA)

133: Beckman (this weight clears out at top level; so high AA expectation)

141: Cruz or Gardner

149: above plus W Switzer

157: Minotti

165: Brill or Martinez (transfer from UCF)

174: Brandon Griffin??

184: Brown (Riddick can't hold 174 and already RS)

197: Diekel or Bolich

285: Wessel, backed up by Vollaro

as you can see, quite different from NEswitch's predictions, but thats what keeps us going until Nov

Was told by a Lehigh coach this weekend that Riddick was already planning to pull a Heflin and jump to 197 next year, and they seemed to indicate that he should have no trouble starting over Diekel or Bolich.

I understand that Brill is no longer on the team and is likely to transfer.

It would be strange to see Riddick not in the line-up. I could see a jump to 97. Also an interesting decision for coaches to redshirt Cruz. Who are the Seniors for next season?

I'll take a shot at Rutgers.

 

125 - Josh Patrick/Sean McCabe

133 - Scott DelVecchio/Anthony Giraldo

141 - Anthony Ashnault/Tyson Dippery

149 - Ken Theobold/Tyler Hunt

157 - Anthony Perrotti/Vinny Corsaro

165 - Nick Visicaro/Nick Gravina

174 - Phillip Bakuckas/ Taylor Jackson

184 - Ethan Orr/Hayden Hrymack

197 - Andrew Campollatano/Hayden Hrymack

285 - Billy Smith/Wesley Bernard

 

cool, thats pretty much what i was thinking. i have no inside info but i could maybe see some guys bumping up weights. you could red shirt all the freshman and Dippery and DelVecchio and still get this:

 

125 - McCabe

133 - Patrick

141 - Ashnault

149 - Hunt

157 - Theobold

165 - Perrotti

174 - Visicaro

184 - Bakuckas

197 - Campollatano

285 - Billy Smith

 

there's also Pafumi who RS'ed at 165, and un-red shirted fr Stasenko wrestled 141, 149 & 157. but again, no clue if anyone actually will move up, just guessing at possibilities. everybody but Visicaro will be back after next year (presumably).

He redshirted two years ago. Was a 5th year senior this past season.

Nate Brown will be only Sr next year. Brill transfer is 50/50.

If Riddick is truly going to 197, here's my projection:

 

125: A. Timchenko, So or S. Parker, Fr (D. Cruz RS)

133: Beckman, RS Jr

141: R. Cruz, RS So

149: one of the backup 141s from 2014 (Switzer, Longo, Carucci) or I. Brown, Fr/D. Milonas, Fr (although both will likely RS with L. Gardner)

157: Minotti, RS So

165: R. Preisch, Fr

174: B. Griffin, RS, So

184: N. Brown, RS Jr

197: E. Riddick, RS So

285: M. Wessel, RS Jr or D. Vollaro, RS So

 

Amazing that this team will be looking at no Seniors in the starting lineup next year - and only three Juniors. I really wish E. Hess and A. Meys were healthy enough to fill roster spots at 165/174.

Heard from a reputable source in state college, that Molinaro is coming back to State College to whip the alton boys back into shape.

 

When will this dagger be put in the heart of all Rutgers Fans?

Wisconsin Projected Lineup:

 

125 - Ryan Taylor RS Soph

133 - Jesse Thielke RS Soph

141 - Rylan Lubeck RS Soph / Andrew Crone RS Fr

149 - TJ Ruschell RS Soph / Andrew Crone RS Fr

157 - Isaac Jordan RS Soph

165 - Seth Liegel RS Fr / Ben Cox RS Sr / Jarod Donar Jr

174 - Jake Stilling RS Fr / Frank Cousins RS Sr / Dylan Izckowski RS Sr

184 - Ricky Robertson - RS Fr / Dylan Izckowski RS Sr

197 - Timmy McCall - RS Sr

285 - Connor Medbery - RS Jr

 

165 and 174 will have a series of Wrestleoffs most likely. Liegel and Stilling wrestled well in open tournaments. Robertson will be solid at 184. I am guessing Lubeck will go 141 and Thielke 133 - Lubeck wrestled 141 as a true Freshman and I think Thielke can easily make 133. Crone wrestled at both 141 and 149 this year and could be a surprise. Ruschell looked solid as a part time starter at 149, but will need to step up.

From another website (no inside knowledge):

125 - Garrett

133 - Grey

141 - Cisneros

149 - Villalonga

157 - Realbuto

165 - Palacio

174 - Pickett

184 - Dean

197 - Bennett

Hwt - JAP

 

 

I've seen several people speculating that Relbuto will go 65 or even 74 next year. They have big recruiting class this year but most of those guys go the FLWC route for a year. They have a big recruit from last year, Taylor that several people have projected at 97. Hope that helps

^^BUF87, You are correct. Villalonga eligibility-wise will be a senior this coming season because he got a med/waiver for his true frosh year of 2011.

 

I have not seen any competition results for Nik Pena the past two seasons. As I recall, he was 11-10 for the 2012 campaign, including an 0-2 at Vegas down at 133, and then nothing at all for 2013 or for 2014.
