125 Troy Dolan - expectations were high for this 3x PA champ and Dapper Dan winner over Zach Sanders. Dolan really took his lumps, however and showed a steadily eroding confidence. He had wins over Bonnano, Krutsinger, and Pokorny, but also had a disturbing propensity for getting stuck. He has been working hard, though and I expect he learned a lot. I look for more confidence and marked improvement. I think he'll qualify this year, maybe even win a match.
133 Todd Schavrien - went 1-2 at last year's tourney, and was ranked 15-20 consistently. Assuming he continues to improve with more time in the Mizzou room, maybe we can get a Rnd12 finish out of him.
141 Nick Hucke - Hails from Askrens' HS, was 22-5 during his RS campaign. Made the semis of FilaJR's, I believe. Look for good things from this freshman, qualifying and even winning a match or two.
149 Brandon Wiest/Cody Farinella/Scott O'Donnell - a hole again in Mizzou's line-up. Not likely to qualify.
157 Nick Gregoris/Patrick Wright - Shame one of these guys will be sitting. Wright is a soph, while Gregoris is fresh off his RS. Both hard working, and competitive, Gregoris has more upside and won the final of 3 bouts between them last year. Whover wins the spot will qualify and win a match or two.
165 Nick Marable - Was a concussion away from being a finalist last year. With the return of Schlatter, Nick could win it all or finish low AA.
174 Dorian Henderson - continues to learn how to wrestle, when it clicks for him - watch out! 0-2 last year, I see him winning a couple this year down at 174.
184 Brent Haynes - #2 recruit behind Geiger, works real hard and has excellent hips. He'll take some lumps as a freshman, but steady improvement will result in him qualifying.
197 Max Askren - wrestled his whole career in the wrong weight class, but will finish out strong. Fully healed after resting all summer, look for Max to finish Mid to High AA.
Hwt Mark Ellis/Dom Bradley - Ellis is footballing, so no telling who gets the spot - doesn't matter though. Either will be a high AA to Champ.
