I didn't mean any offense, if you took any. I'm just trying to figure where people stand on this. Still be interested to see a top five from you, or anyone else who wants to throw one up.
I worked out with Graff before he took off to Vegas, and I can tell you this kid is the real deal and is a top 5 recruit without a doubt! Whipping Ashmore just raised his stock even more. Which college he chooses is actually 2nd on his priority list right now as his short term goal is the 121 lb. spot for 08.
Per Bucksman, Ohio's top 5 juniors.
1 Coby Boyd Graham
2 Tony Jameson Austintown Fitch
3 Brian Roddy St Edward
4 Cody Magrum Oak Harbor
5 Jedd Moore Marion Pleasant
Perhaps Roddy could be considered a top 5 (national) depending on Fargo. Word is Northwestern, with their big St. Eds connection, is after him. So is Ohio State, who is attempting to develop their own St. Eds pipeline.
Ohio's junior class is underwhelming in the grand scheme of things. On the other hand, Ohio's current sophomore class should be quite good.
Jason Welch CA
Alex Meade DE
Tyler Graff CO
Scott Winston NJ
Jordan Oliver PA
Here is RevWrestling.com's top 15 seniors-to-be
1 Jason Welch California 160
2 Mario Mason New Jersey 140
3 Scott Winston New Jersey 152
4 Jordan Oliver Pennsylvania 119
5 Alex Meade Delaware 145
6 Michael Magrum Washington 140
7 Tyler Graff Colorado 125
8 Jake Deitchler Minnesota 145
9 Brian Roddy Ohio 171
10 Tony Jameson Ohio 135
11 Andrew Howe Indiana 152
12 Nate Moore Iowa 125
13 Romero Cotton Kansas 171
14 Trevor Melde New Jersey 135
15 Garrett Goebel Illiniois 275
Looks good to me, I personally think Meade is higher than five, or at least should be. But the top 8 look good.
Graff wont werstle 125 next year, he will probably be at 135 or 140
Those were their weights this past year, Welch has already come out and said he's going 171, I'm pretty sure Meade will move up to at least 152, and I imagine most other guys will as well.
Graff didnt wrestle 125 last year either.
