Thread: #20 Nick Dardanes & Chris Dardanes to Minnesota

    I think little ness will get bigger, isn't he 145 right now in hs?

    Dont forget about Marckiki at 141. Apparently he is finally healthy this year, and while hes certainly going to have a lot of rust to shake off he was a good recruit a few years back.
    Gold is an idiot.

    Its always feasible that Dylan could get bigger but he was still at 140 this summer at Fargo.

    With Mason, and Deitchler likely manning the two weights above him you'd have to assume that they're going to try (barring a major growth spurt) and have him hold 49 at least for two years.

    Big shock, we still have a hole at 197. Unbelievable. Thanks Geiger for being unable to keep a pencil to paper in order to win a National Championship.

    They've been in high school for three years. I'm sure they've been wrestling much longer than that. The interview that Intermat did with them had Chris referencing looking up to J Rob "since he was young"

    It'll be a VERY interesting line up situation in two years when these two and Dylan Ness are all scheduled to come off redshirt.

    125: Zach Sanders (SR)
    133: David Thorn (SO)/Bart Reiter (SO)/Chris Dardanes (FR)
    141: Nick Dardanes (FR)/Thorn/Reiter/C. Dardanes
    149: Dylan Ness (FR)/N. Dardanes
    157: Mario Mason (JR)
    165: Jake Deitchler (JR)
    174: Alec Ortiz (SO)/Cody Yohn (JR)
    184: Sonny Yohn (SR)
    197: ????
    285: Tony Nelson (SO)/Jake Kettler (SO)
    That team looks like Iowas team in 2 years. Good young talent with lots to prove with along with a few studs.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    If Mason can hold 149 next year the line up sets up pretty well. Nice mix of young guys and older guy. No real holes.

    125: Zach Sanders (JR)
    133: David Thorn (FR)/Bart Reiter (FR)
    141: Mike Thorn (SR)
    149: Mario Mason (SO)
    157: Jake Deitchler (SO)
    165: Alec Ortiz (FR)
    174: Scott Glasser (SR)/Cody Yohn (SO)
    184: Sonny Yohn (JR)
    197: Joe Nord (SR)
    285: Ben Berhow (SR)/Tony Nelson (FR)/Jake Kettler (FR)

    The easiest thing to do for 97 in two years will probably be to go hard after #62 Tyler Lehman since he's right there in that weight range.

    I am concerned about Nord holding down 197 in the long run. Only in the sense that it will be a VERY disciplined weight for him to hold. I must admit though, I am curious to see how he does here.

    If Nord does real well at 97 this year, he will have enough incentive to keep weight down one more year. ARe we sure that Geiger left because of grades. Something Robinson said made me think it was because he didnt want to work as hard as Robinson wanted

    No, much longer than that. Their older brother, Eric, wrestled for Fenwick High School and they worked out at the now defunct Falcon Wrestling Club. I believe that they were both Illinois Kids Wrestling Federation placewinners in eighth grade.

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I haven't been on in a while.

    I've known the twins since they were 4-year-olds running around their big brother's peewee football games. They are really good kids and it's a great get for Minny. I don't get to see many kids that I know, from my town, wrestle at the D-1 level, much less those a power like Minnesota. I'm kinda proud of those little guys!
