College / Imagine a Div. I wrestling team that currently has
« on: August 17, 2022, 06:01:44 PM »
Imagine a Div. I wrestling team that currently has only 19 individuals listed on their wrestling team roster.

Imagine this Div. I wrestling team has only three wrestlers - total - who are ranked below # 50 in their weight class by WrestleStat

Imagine this Div. I wrestling team has only 11 individuals on their team ranked below # 100 in their weight class by WrestleStat

Any guesses who this team might be?

College / Kordell Norfleet back
« on: August 11, 2022, 08:32:28 AM »
After being removed from the Arizona State wrestling team roster a few weeks ago Kordell Norfleet has been - once again - added to the Arizona State wrestling team roster.

On his bio page is this entry for the 2022-2023 season:  "Granted a medical hardship waiver by the NCAA and so will return for one last season in 2022-23."

His younger brother Kendall however has not been added back onto the roster.

College / UNI's Brody Teske in the transfer portal
« on: July 28, 2022, 10:57:55 AM »
Teske is ranked # 11 at 125 lbs on WrestleStat and apparently he graduated from the Univ. of N. Iowa this summer so he's a grad transfer and therefore can go pretty much whereever he chooses.   It's interesting to note that he started out at Penn State and Penn State could use another top 25 guy at 125 lbs as their highest rated guy currently at 125 lbs is ranked # 23 by WS (Robert Howard).  I have to wonder if that is a possibility for him or if he goes elsewhere.

Personally I'd love to see him sign with a PAC 12 school - like Stanford or Cal Poly (if he qualifies academically).  As I understand it he will be a RS Junior for the upcoming 2022-23 season but he also has that extra year of eligibility due to the cancelled 2020 season.  So he could have as many as three more years of eligibility remaining (2023-2024 & 2025?).

College / A. J. Ferrari to Arizona State???????
« on: July 26, 2022, 03:04:24 PM »
I will type part of this message in BOLD PRINT so as to EMPHASIZE THIS STRONGLY

There is a message on "Sun Devil Wrestling" twitter page here:

https://twitter.com/travis_sw/status/1552000205511434246


I HAVE NO IDEA IF THIS IS TRUE OR NOT but it's interesting to say the least.

The 2022-2023 Arizona State wrestling team roster has nobody named NORFLEET.  Kendall Norfleet - the younger brother of Kordell - has apparently transferred to something called "Triton College".  And Kordell - apparently - has chosen to not return for his final year of eligibility.  Or at least that is how it appears.

https://thesundevils.com/sports/wrestling/roster

That leaves a big hole in the lineup for 2023 for Arizona State at 197 lbs

125 - Courtney - Ranked # 5 by WS
133 - McGee- Ranked # 4 by WS
141 - Vasquez - Ranked # 29 by WS
149 - Parco - Ranked # 8 by WS
157 - Teemer - Ranked # 4 by WS
165 - Negron - Ranked # 43 by WS
174 - Valencia - Ranked # 49 by WS
184 - Montalvo - Ranked # 12 by WS
197 - _____?
285 - Schultz - Ranked # 5 by WS

He was removed from the team as a result of sexual assault allegations. 

https://sports.yahoo.com/oklahoma-state-releases-national-champion-wrestler-aj-ferrari-amid-sexual-assault-allegation-024016915.html

One thing that HAS to be remembered is allegations of sexual assault - particularly as it pertains to people who are "famous" are often times unfounded and per his attorney he completely denies the allegations.

Yet he and Oklahoma State have parted ways.  Have to wonder how that is going to affect his younger brother Anthony who is set to join the OSU wrestling team this fall.

P.S. Personally I think he should have been arrested and tried for the idiotic things he did while driving earlier this year.

Shocker is it's Little Rock's incoming recruiting class that is ranked # 18 in the country by MatScouts.  This is also the 2nd straight year that Little Rock's incoming recruiting class has been ranked in the top 25 in the country.

College / PAC 12 imports five and exports only one
« on: July 03, 2022, 12:59:24 PM »
The five PAC 12 imports (transfers from non-PAC 12 schools to PAC 12 schools) are as follows:

ARIZONA STATE - Tony Negron (a Senior with 2 yrs of eligibility) formerly at Penn State transferred to ASU to compete for them at 165 lbs  AND Antony Montalvo (a RS Junior) formerly of Oklahoma State transferred to ASU to compete for them at 184 lbs

CAL POLY - Dominic Demas formerly of Oklahoma (a 6th year Senior) transferred to Cal Poly S.L.O. to compete for them at 149 lbs

CAL STATE BAKERSFIELD - Jaden Engiquez (a 6th year Senior) transferred from Michigan State to compete for CSUB at 149 lbs

OREGON STATE - Tristan Lara (a 6th year Senior) transferred to Oregon State to compete for them at 149 lbs

Three of these five transfers to the PAC 12 will have only their final NCAA season of eligibility (unless they are injured & can't compete) and three of these five transfers to the PAC 12 will be competing at 149 lbs

The only PAC 12 wrestler I can recall who transferred outside of the PAC 12 was Real Woods of Stanford who transferred to Iowa.

College / Another Valencia commits to wrestle in college for
« on: July 02, 2022, 09:35:01 AM »
Stanford.  That being Aden Valencia (a 2020 HS Sophomore) from Morgan Hill, CA.   As I understand it he is NOT related to Zahid and Anthony and Cael. Aden has verbally committed to Stanford University as a 2024 commit for the Cardinal.

Aden placed 3rd at the 2022 California State wrestling tournament at 126 lbs - his one loss was a 6-5 loss to HS Senior Zeth Romney of Chaminade H.S. in the Semi-Finals.  Romney then got pinned in the championship match by another 10th grader by the name of Brock Mantanona of Palm Desert H.S. in CA.  Fact is four of the top 7 placers at 126 lbs at the 2022 CA State tournament were 10th graders:

1st. - Brock Mantanona - (10) Palm Desert H.S. - Won by FALL (4:34) over Zeth Romney (12) of Champinade HS

3rd - Aden Valenia (10) Sobrato H.S. - Won 2-0 in 3rd place match over Yoshiya Funakoshi (12) of Calvary Chapel H.S.

5th - Grigor Cholakyan (10) St. John Bosco H.S. - Won 3-2 in 5th place match over George Rosas (12) of Clovis H.S.

7th - Paul Kelly (10) Poway H.S. won 3-1 over Leo Contino (9) Buchanan H.S.

In other words all four of the placement finals at 126 lbs at the 2022 CA State tournament were won this year by H.S. Sophomores and three of the four losers in those placement matches were lost by H.S. Seniors.

College / Old news now............BUT
« on: July 02, 2022, 07:30:36 AM »
U.S.C. and U.C.L.A. - like Texas and Oklahoma before them - have "entered the transfer portal".   Word is U.S.C. and U.C.L.A. will be members of the Big "Ten" as early as 2024.

My question is will they be required - by the Big Ten Conference - to field a men's wrestling team as every other school currently in the Big "Ten" has a wrestling team.   There are currently 14 schools in the Big "Ten" and all 14 of them have a Division I wrestling team.  So WHY ON EARTH would they want to bring in U.S.C. and U.C.L.A. - both of which do NOT have wrestling teams?

College / Another Arizona State wrestler transfers to Oregon State
« on: June 29, 2022, 05:54:20 PM »
Last year it was Cory Crooks and Trey Munoz.  This year it's Cleveland Belton transferring from Arizona State to Oregon State.   I don't see this being of a lot of value for Oregon State tho - as Belton's college wrestling career record is a whopping 0-3 record in THREE years at Arizona State.

According to WrestleStat the following is the projected lineup for Cal Poly for the 2022-2023 season.  I have to wonder tho if this is speculation on their part or do they have an insider at Cal Poly who is telling them that this IS going to be their lineup.  I wonder about that because some of these guys are projected to be moving up not just one weight class but TWO weight classes.  And frankly I find that difficult to believe.

125 - # 45 ranked Antonio Lorenzo - SO - 19-11 record for 2022 season vs. Div. I wrestlers - 2-2 at 2022 PAC 12 tournament - 0-2 at 2022 NCAA tournament

133 - # 120 ranked Abraham Hinrichsen - SO - 12-17 record for 2022 season vs. Div. I wrestlers - 0-3 at 2022 PAC 12 tournament
 
141 - # 60 ranked Lawrence Saenz - JR - 14-7 record for 2022 season vs Div. I wrestlers - 2-2 at 2022 PAC 12 tournament

149 - # 10 ranked Dominick Demas - SR - Oklahoma transfer - 3-2 record for 2022 at 149 lbs vs Div. I wrestlers

157 - # 26 ranked Luka Wick - RS FR - 7-0 record for 2022 season at 149 lbs vs Div. I wrestlers - Moving up one weight class according to this WrestleState projected lineup for Cal Poly for next season

165 - # 15 ranked Legend Lamer - SO - 13-7 record for 2022 season at 149 lbs vs Div. I wrestlers - Moving up two weight classes according to this WrestleStat projected lineup for Cal Poly for next season.
 
174 - #  98 ranked Brawley Lamer - SR - 5-14 record for 2022 season at 157 lbs vs Div. I wrestlers - Moving up two weight classes according to this WrestleStat projected lineup for Cal Poly for next season.

184 - # 25 ranked Adam Kemp - JR - 12-6 record for 2022 season at 174 lbs vs. Div. I wrestlers - Moving up one weight class according to this WrestleState projected lineup for Cal Poly for next season

197 - # 5 ranked Bernie Truax - JR - 18-3 record for 2022 season at 184 lbs vs. Div. I wrestlers - Moving up one weight class according to this WrestleState projected lineup for Cal Poly for next season

285 - # 62 ranked Sam Aguilar - SR - 3-10 record for 2022 season at 285 lbs vs Div. I wrestlers

College / Apparently I missed this announcement
« on: June 24, 2022, 02:57:46 PM »
That being that former Penn State starter (on occasions) Tony Negron has transferred to Arizona State and is slotted by WrestleStat to be ASU's starter next season at 165 lbs.

I see what Internat has put out their first NCAA Division I wrestling rankings roughly 4 1/2 months before the 2022-2023 season begins.   I used the words "somewhat suspect" in the title here because I think that's pretty accurate - unlike their ratings.  As it pertains to the PAC 12 guys they don't have Arizona State's Kordell Norfleet anywhere in their top 33 guys at 197 lbs - as one example.

Having said that tho here are their newly released wrestling rankings for the 2022-2023 season as they pertain to PAC 12 wrestlers:

125 lbs
# 6 - Brandon Courtney - SR - Arizona State
# 8 - Brandon Kaylor - JR - Oregon State (2022-2023 will be his 5th year at Oregon State - so I think that makes him a Senior)
# 33 - Antonio Lorenzo - SO - Cal Poly (2022-2023 will be his 4th year at Cal Poly - so I think that makes him a RS Junior)

133 lbs
# 3 - Michael McGee - SR - Arizona State
# 15 - Chance Rich - JR - Cal State Univ. at Bakersfield (2022-2023 will be his 5th year at CSUB - so I think that makes him a RS Senior)
# 30 - Jackson DiSario - JR - Stanford (He was listed on Stanford's roster last season as a JR so I think that makes him a SR for 2022-2023)
# 31 - Jason Shaner - SR - Oregon State

141 lbs
# 18 - Jesse Vasquez - FR - Arizona State - 2022-2023  will be Vasquez's 3rd season at ASU - which makes him a RS SO by my count.
# 30 - Lawrence Saenz - JR - Cal Poly
NOTE - Real Woods, formerly at Stanford, is ranked # 2 at 141 lbs for Iowa

149 lbs
# 7 - Kyle Parco - SO - Arizona State - Parco was listed on ASU's roster last season as a RS SO - So I believe that makes him a 4th year RS JR for 2022-2023
# 10 - Jaden Abas - SO - Stanford - Abas was listed on Stanford's roster last season as a RS SO as well - So I believe that makes him a 4th year RS JR for 2022-2023
# 13 - Dom Demas - SR - Cal Poly

157 lbs
# 4 - Jacori Teemer - JR - Arizona State
# 27 - Luka Wick - FR - Cal Poly
# 28 - Isaiah Crosby - JR - Oregon State

165 lbs
# 2 - Shane Griffith - JR - Stanford - Griffith was listed on Stanford's roster last season as a RS Junior so I believe that makes him a RS Senior for 2022-2023
# 28 - Legend Lamer - JR - Cal Poly - Legend Lamer was at 149 lbs last season
# 29 - Matthew Olguin - SO - Oregon State - 2022-2023 will be Olguin's 4th year of NCAA wrestling so at best I believe that makes him a RS JR for 2022-2023

174 lbs
# 26 - Tyler Eischens - JR - Stanford - Eischens was listed on Stanford's roster last season as a RS Junior so I believe he will be a RS Senior for 2022-2023
# 32 - Aaron Olmos - SR - Oregon State

184 lbs
# 6 - Trey Munoz - SO - Oregon State
# 18 - Anthony Montalvo - JR - Arizona State
# 19 - Adam Kemp - JR - Cal Poly - 2022-2023 will be Kemp's 5th year of NCAA wrestling so I think that means he will be a RS Senior for 2022-2023 - Also Kemp was at 174 lbs last season

197 lbs
# 6 - Bernie Truax - SR - Cal Poly - Truax was at 184 lbs last season'
# 33 - Ryan Reyes - JR - Oregon State
# ___ - WHY isn't Arizona State's Kordell Norfleet listed anywhere in these top 33 rankings for 197 lbs?

285 lbs
# 1 - Cohlton Schultz - SO - Arizona State - 2022-2023 will be Schultz's 4th year of NCAA wrestling.  That makes him - at best - a RS Junior for 2022-2023
