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

I meant to indicate that ASU's Anthony Montalvo at 184 lbs is an Oklahoma State transfer

If each of the six PAC 12 wrestling schools were given points based on these WS rankings here from all 10 weight classes, i.e., 1 point for being top ranked in the PAC 12 and 2 points for being 2nd ranked among PAC 12, etc., the following would be how each of these six wrestling teams would be rated respective of the other five teams:

1. Arizona State - 18 points

2. Cal Poly - 31 points

3. Oregon State and Stanford - Tied at 35 points

5.  Cal State Bakersfield - 44 points

6. Little Rock - 47 points
