    Default Recruiting Class Rankings

    What are everyone's thoughts on who ranks #1 with recruiting this year?

    I'm of course going to say the Gophers with Dietchler (145), Disney (HWT), Reiger (197), Mason (145), Mincey (133) and Yohn (174). All ranked in the top 50 with Dietchler, Mason and Yohn #1 at their weight class.

    I've been wondering how JRob can attract so many top tier wrestlers from out of state with so few scholarships to offer. Let's face, kids are looking for full or half rides to cut costs. I think I found the answer for the '08 class.

    The BoT just slashed the tuition costs for non-residents making UMN much more affortdable. It stilkl noit as inexpensive as Okla State, but the non-resident tuition is lower than the in-state rate for Rutgers and a lot of other publics. Also, Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota have an agreement for a flat rate tuition for residents of each at the other state universites.

    I'm befuddled how UMN can slash non-resident tuition when so many other state universities zre geting hammered by reductions in state budget support driving tuition for resident and non-resident student through the roof.

    Costs: 2007-08 tuition and fees (based on full-time enrollment)
    Minnesota residents - $9,885
    Wisconsin residents- $8,645*
    North Dakota, South Dakota, Manitoba residents- $9,885
    Nonresidents- (residents of states other than MN, ND, SD, or WI): Beginning fall semester 2008, a new tuition structure will be put in place for new nonresident students. Nonresident tuition will cost just $2,000 more each semester than Minnesota resident tuition. Using 2007-08 tuition rates as an example, the nonresident rate would be approximately $14,000 - a reduction of more than $7,500 off of the 07-08 nonresident rate of $21,515.

    By the numbers (Tuition only, excl R&B):
    U. Michigan - Residents -$10,448, Nonresidents - $31,302
    Oklahoma State U. - Residents - $ 6,656, Nonresidents - $ 16,081
    Iowa State U. - Residents - $6,161, Nonresidents - $16,919
    U. Iowa - Residents - $6,293, Nonresidents - $19,465
    U Minnesota - Residents - $9,885 , Nonresidents - $11,885

    Of the above, all of the schools except U Mich have soft requirements to gain resident status in the 2nd year which will slash the cost for a non-resident (and also the cost of a scholarship to the wrestling team.) U Mich requires 2 years of instate residency before you can even apply and then the student much be able to prove ability to pay for 100% of the cost without parent support. Penn State also has the same 2 year instate residency requirement.

    Your kids are going to have a tough time. Not many lookers on those campuses.
