    Gardner was in many polls the #1 recruit regardless of weight just a year or two ago. Though we was at HWT and wrestled 215 in high school, so it'll be interesting if he can make the cut down to 197.

    Gardner will probably major Weakley
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    125 Nikko Triggas vs Harrington (Triggas should win easily)
    133 Reece Humphrey vs Brian Kelly (Humphrey should win easily)
    149 Lance Palmer vs Jared Kusar (Palmer should win)
    158 Jason Johnstone vs AJ Agazarm
    Freshman, Sean Nemec (4-time Finalist, 3-time State Champ - OH) is unable to wrestle and replaced by Agazarm, who was vying for a spot at 165.
    165 Colt Sponseller vs Ross Ambrose (Sponsellor should win easily)
    174 Dave Rella vs CJ Magrum
    Rella is a transfer from Penn St. (4th Big Ten, NCAA qualifier) and should
    lock down this starting spot.
    197 John Weakley vs Cody Gardner
    Weakley was 8-21 last year as a freshman. Weakley is a physical beast.
    Cody Gardner (4-time State Champ from Virginia) shocked VA Tech last year by quitting the team. He resurfaced this year at OSU. He should
    easily lock-down this spot and looked good in practice by easily handling HVYWT Corry Morrison.
    285 Pat Walsh vs Johnny Hiles (Hiles should win, but vs Morrison is a toss-up) Morrison is unable to wrestle at this time. (Morrison is one of those lighter and quicker hvywts. Hiles is a big guy, cutting-down from 300.

    I heard that Morrison is unable to wrestle because he has a midterm at that time. When they do wrestle off, I expect Morrison to beat Hiles. Hiles is a pretty technically sound heavyweight who is difficult to get off balance, but I've always felt that he was overrated.

    Morrison has good athleticism and moves very well for a HVY, and he's had a few years in the room with Bergman and Rowlands. So maybe it won't be by a big margin (due to Hiles's good center of gravity and technical skills), but I would expect Morrison to be the aggressor and control the match for the most part.

    Mark my words....Gardner is going to be a best this year.....Pucillo, Bergman and Rowlands as workout partners.....hope he tears up Weakley tonight.

    Although, we all know....wrestle off differential means nothing. You wrestle someone enough, you can keep it close.
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    Ohiowrestlingradio.com will have a live broadcast starting at 7 central for anyone who's interested.

    I may check in to hear Triggas, Palmer, and Sponseller. Disappointing that Nemec/Johnstone isn't going to go tonight.
