Thread: Top 5 Recruits for next year

  1. #1

    Default Top 5 Recruits for next year

    Just interested to see what you guys think. I thought this year was kind of a lean year, at least in comparison with the two years previous. There were no clearly defined top of the heap guys, but instead just a dozen or so, very, very good guys.

    I can't really put these in order, as I've only seen one guy more than once or twice.

    - Alex Meade DE
    - Mario Mason NJ
    - Jason Welch CA
    - Jordan Oliver PA
    - Scott Winston NJ

    Scott Winston may be the best to come out of New Jersey yet. Undefeated for 3 years, but only a 2x state champ because he broke a bone just before the tornament his freshman year.

    All I can say is he is a wicked, wicked, wicked wrestler.

    I think those are probably the top five guys. My order is:

    1. Jason Welch
    2. Scott Winston
    3. Mario Mason
    4. Alex Meade
    5. Jordan Oliver (I know there have been questions about his size)

    Another five to watch would be:

    Tyler Graff, Brian Roddy, Jordan Blanton, Quentin Wright, and Trevor Melde.

    I don't know about Oliver being small, I watched his matches on Flo and he seemed like a nice sized 119, if he can step up and go say 130 next year, or even just 125 he'll be a nice size for a college 125, and plus career 125's aren't always easy to find. Welch is apparently definitely going 171, and then I could see Mason, Meade, and Winston all stepping up a weight to 145, 152, and 160 respectively.

    Yeah I wouldn't say he will be too small, just one of the knocks I've heard before.

    Tyler Graff I believe will set himself apart from the rest of the class this year. I have never seen a kid that was as strong as he is and as technicly sound at that weight. I cant wait to see how he does at the US open and fargo this year.

    Personally, I'd say Mike Mangrum would probably be in the top ten, I didn't list him just because he's already verbaled with Oregon State.
