The question is, what does Willie Miklus do now?  Cox MIGHT bump up ( he was up to 230 before being told to cut down to 197), but what if he doesn't?  Miklus could be starting at a lot of schools. Will he bump to HWT?

Wow, I've seen Cox quite a bit and would have never guessed he was 230 ever.  Matter of fact I would have never guessed him to ever be over 210 and that is a stretch.  If I were J'Den I would stay at 197.  Actually by the way he looks could even go to 184.  As for Miklus, he is going to have to find a different weight.  Miklus looked to be bigger than J'Den to me, maybe he should go heavy.

I was more impressed with LaVallee than England.  Can't remember England even being close to a takedown of any sort against Perry.

I agree with you on Houdashelt.  I have watched him wrestle since he was little and he has jumped his game to another level.  He absolutely broke Kindig and I think Kindig will AA this year.

Well I guess getting a job at a carnival guessing people's weights is not in your future. That info comes from Cox himself. Apparently the policy is that you must remain within 6 lbs of your weight or extra workout time is required, but they made an exception for J'Den and let him hover around 207 now.

No reason Bradley shouldn't AA this year and I honestly think Lavallee will be better right out of the gate next year. What about Mayes?  Dude is freakshow strong, and competes like he's out to prove something. Did you see when he was in on a single at the edge and Collica had a deep whizzer sunk, but Mayes with one arm around Collica's thigh, just lifted him almost off his feet and drug him back in bounds?  Unreal.
Because they stand on a wall.  And they say nothin\'s gonna hurt you tonight....not on my watch.

As a senior, Smith went into the Missouri State High School tournament with a record of 46-2, including a major decision over Cody Johnston of Warrensburg, who had signed to wrestle at the University of Missouri. In his finals match Smith again faced Johnston, who went into the Missouri State High School tournament with a record of 47-1. Johnston had pinned all his previous opponents in the tournament. "The two wrestlers battled hard in a scoreless first period. Johnston nearly recorded a takedown late in the period, but Smith scrambled out of the hold. Smith scored an escape point early in the second period, and later followed that up with a takedown with two seconds remaining in the frame. In the third period, Smith sealed the win with a two-point near fall and decisioned Johnson 5-0 for the state championship".
