    Mccauley will be in the mix. Sadly, he chose ISU. 149 will be an awesome weight with great young Talent. I believe Chamberlain will be passed by the young guns Alton, Ness and even McCauley.

    I expect McCauley to be an AA. Once again I think this weight is extremely weak and if Iowa marches Kelly out there again it's going to be a huge hole. If Skon puts on some quality weight I think he'll be an absolute stud(he's my favorite hawk recruit this year) but I really wish he was ready to compete for that spot this year but he isn't.

    Skon was a small 38 imo. It will tale some serious work to make him a legit sized 49.

    Just finished 149, McCauley is 4th right now.

    Don't know if I'm going to type everything up tonight or tomorrow.

    From everything I'm hearing it sounds like Skon is more likely to go 149 than 141 and he will likely redshirt and try and put on some quality weight. I know his walking around weight is 155ish and I didn't think he was very small at 138. I was hoping he would go 141 but I'm not sure that is going to happen.

    149
    1. Dylan Ness (Minnesota)
    2. Andrew Alton (Penn State)
    3. Jason Chamberlain (Boise State)
    4. Destin McCauley (Iowa State)
    5. Ian Miller (Kent State)
    6. Donnie Vinson (Binghamton)
    7. Eric Grajales (Michigan)
    8. Cam Tessari (Ohio State)
    R12. Scott Sakaguchi (Oregon State), Cole Von Ohlen (Air Force), Mario Mason (Rutgers), David Habat (Edinboro)

    Came into last season predicting Dylan Ness to be in the finals against Frank Molinaro, and it wound up turning out to be one of the more prescient predictions that I've made in the several years where I've been really breaking things down when I do these. I won't pretend like I didn't come to doubt that pick several times through out the year to the point to where I think I had him in the Round of 12 in January but he really started to turn things on over the course of the second half of the year. It wasn't until NCAA's though where he started wrestling like I kind of expected him to as a more conventionally dynamic version of his brother. I always felt Jayson was very underrated as a neutral wrestler because of the style he wrestled, Dylan wrestles a more open neutral based style and like I said NCAA's were when things finally came together as he upset Jamal Parks and Tyler Nauman in successive rounds to make the final. Has some crazy counters that he likes to force sometimes which can get him in trouble but with another year of seasoning I think he's able to eliminate those issues.

    Despite the fact that some rumors popped up at the beginning of the year last year that he might wrestle, we didn't see Andrew Alton last year. He comes back here this year up a weight ready to fill Frank Molinaro's very large shoes and I think he's going to be up to the task. The thought of a match between him and Ness is already making me excited. Needless to say I would expect fireworks. Still owns one of the coolest moves I've ever seen from two years ago when he was wrestling Lehigh where he faked a duck under and then came and hit a huge headlock going the other way for a fall. People may try and get down on his season two years ago because he wasn't an All American but other than his R12 loss to Kemmerer all his other losses were really just a function of being in an utterly rugged weight class. He had losses that year to Russell, Marion, Kennedy, and Thorn. Possibly had some weight issues at the end of his freshman year. I think the move to 149 will help alleviate those just like they did with Molinaro.

    Given that he's the most seasoned guy here at the weight class and he's had a stellar off season wrestling freestyle including a recent win in a tough University National weight maybe I "should" have Chamberlain at least one spot higher but I'll be honest doing that would bore me. Chamberlain is a very good wrestler but he's very basic and doesn't really put up a lot of points and I think in the grand scheme of things thats going to hurt him in matches against either Ness or Alton because despite their big moves they're both able to wrestle basic as well. Basically I think they have more ways to win. They can win tight against Chamberlain or they can win a shootout. I don't see Chamberlain beating them if the combined score is over 8 or 9 points.

    With Iowa State winning McCauley's services for the coming season he should definitely be one of the more talked about guys in the nation next year. Spent a year last year at the OTC not a technical redshirt but one in all but name. Got a lot of good experience wrestling senior level freestyle and I think he's able to carry that success into his folkstyle season next year. Absolute high school phenom winning 5 state titles for Apple Valley but more important he's a guy who has been wrestling age group freestyle events against college guys for several years now and seeing a lot of success. This fall won't be the first time he's seen these guys, he's wrestled and beaten many of them over the last few springs and summers and I think that experience will serve him well.

    When it comes to Ian Miller the first thought that I have about his season last year is that Kent State had another guy who had an awesome freshman year for them a few years ago but then wasn't an All American very similar to how Miller was one of the breakout guys in the country last year and then had a bad NCAA tournament. That guy who wasn't an All American a few years ago is coming back this year to man Kent State's 197 weight class again after taking an Olympic year last year as the defending National Champion. So what I'm getting at is I like big things out of Miller this season. Super dynamic, super exciting wrestler from the feet. Dirty inside trip that he's able to hit against quality guys. Hard to figure what happened to him last year at NCAA's but whatever it was I don't see it continuing this year.

    It seemed like for almost two years there I had Vinson as my 7th or 8th place guy at this weight class in every set of picks that I did here almost just for lack of a better option but given how he performed last year I've moved him up a little bit here and I feel good about predicting a return to the podium for him. Beat Andrew Alton last year at the Nittany Lion Open ruining the possible Molinaro v. Alton final that everyone was expecting. Got knocked off in the first round at NCAA's and then just utterly laid waste to the consolation bracket wrestling all the way back to take 3rd. With Popolizio leaving Binghamton he may or may not transfer but wherever he is I expect him on the podium.

    Got to get some Grajales in here so Zapp doesn't flip out. In all seriousness though he's a guy who deserves to be in here despite the fact that he wasn't an All American last year going down to Molinaro in the quarter finals at NCAA's and then facing an unfortunate R12 match up with Vinson who as I already mentioned went on an utter warpath through the back side at NCAA's. Markedly improved last year from his freshman season. Still had some gas tank issues but he wrestled well enough to where Jim Gibbons stopped clowning him and saying he looked tired when he got off the bus. High point of the year was at Las Vegas where he dominated his way through the tournament capped off with a major over Von Ohlen in the final. Possibility definitely exists that with Russell's graduation he heads down to 141 but for now he's here.

    Like Vinson (who he'd go on to lose to for 3rd) Tessari got upset in the first round at NCAA's as a seeded wrestler but then blazed a path of devastation through the wrestle backs at NCAA's. Had a really sneaky solid season last year but was still under the radar as an All American pick for a lot of people coming into NCAA's. Unfortunately for him the big memory that a lot of people had of him from the regular season last year was of the guy who Ian Miller nearly killed or the guy who got the phantom pin over Ness. To his credit he had wins last year over Nauman, Accordino, and Sakaguchi. Super fun to watch and it'll be interesting to see him this year with some more seasoning. Very wide open wrestler.
