    Default Re: State of Michigan related college signings

    According to Michigan Grappler the following are the top Michigan Wrestlers who have not committed to a college yet:

    Top Recruits Unsigned
    Below is a list of the top Michigan recruits who remain uncommited going into the spring signing period...

    1. Dan Yates, Hesperia, 165/174

    Following his Senior National championship, Yates should be one of the most sought after guys not only in Michigan, but in the country. He defeated the 5th and 7th ranked wrestlers in the country at Senior Nationals.

    Yates' Top Prospects: Michigan State, Iowa, North Carolina, Oklahoma

    2. Michael McClure, West Ottawa, 285

    McClure is the prototype of what you want in a college heavyweight - BIG, strong, explosive. He is not built like the average heavyweight and his size and build make him a big time college prospect. His runner up performance at Senior Nationals should increase his stock as he downed a couple of highly nationally ranked heavyweights.

    McClure's Top Prospects: Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Michigan, Purdue, Ohio State, Michigan State

    3. Kyler Elsworth, Goodrich, 184

    Elsworth is one of the most athletic and talented upperweights around and he has been dominant in the state of Michigan over the past two years. He is a 2x state champ and he had some credible national wins at Disney and the FILA Cadet Freestyle Nationals last year. He should be getting some looks from many big time colleges.

    Elsworth's Top Prospects: Michigan State, Indiana, North Carolina

    4. Jacob Walters, St Johns, 133

    Walters had a great senior season with many big wins, including a couple wins at 135 over other top recruits Andrew Schutt and Paul Hancock. He has placed at Super 32s and Fargo, which makes an argument for him as a D1 prospect.

    5. Robert Nash, Roseville, 157/165

    Nash made a statement for himself by placing 4th at Senior Nationals. He was D1 state champ this year, but prior to Senior Nationals he had yet to prove himself nationally. He is a big, strong kid that could grow into a nice 165lber.

    6. Phil Joseph, Lapeer East, 174

    Joseph won a state title this year and probably helped himself out with a strong showing at Senior Nationals. He went 4-2 at Seniors and while he did not have any keynote wins, he wrestled well with a couple quality guys and showed he could be capable of competing at the next level.

    7. Paul Hancock, Dearborn Fordson, 141

    Hancock is a very talented wrestler who is not afraid to mix it up. He won his 1st D1 state title this year after finishing runner up as a junior and he definitely has the skills to compete in college - he can wrestle on the mat and he can scramble well. If Division 1 isn't in the cards, then he could be very good in a NCAA D-3 type setting.

    8. Nick Kaczanowski, Rochester, 165

    Kaczanowski flys under a lot of radars due to not being able to compete at this year's state tournament, however, he was a D1 state finalist his junior year, losing a tight finals match to Jake Varilek, and he was dominant this year going undefeated prior to being sidelined just before districts. Kaz has the tools to compete at the next level and if he chooses to go D1 there should be some schools interested in giving him a shot.

    9. Billy Osborne, Bedford, 141/149

    Osborne capped off an up and down career by finally making the state finals this year, winning the Division 1 140lb state title. Osborne has a unique style, however, his ability to scramble and wrestle from all positions should make him capable of competing at the next level. He has the potential to be a good late signee for a top D1 school, or he could be a high level D2/D3/NAIA wrestler.

    10. Grant Pizzo, Brighton, 125

    Pizzo came on strong this year, making a run to the D1 119lb finals and wrestling well against Kyle Waldo in the finals. He had a strong showing at senior nationals, falling just short of placing and that performance should make a strong argument for him as capable of competing in D1 collegiately. His size could be a selling point as well if he can stay 125 his whole career, which always hard to find in college.
