125 1. Jarrod Patterson (Oklahoma)
2. Jon Morrison (Oklahoma State)
3. David Klingsheim (Nebraska)

5. Patrick Hunter (Iowa State)
Patterson is a guy that peaked in a really impressive fashion last year at the Big 12 tournament winning this weight class in a pretty big upset in the finals over Andrew Long.
