Keystone Classic

In addition to the loaded PSU contingent, there are a few very intriguing sleepers entered here. We've got two guys coming off of injuries, and two others that are changing weights (the rare move down a weight class, at that).

In a field with so much talent, these four have a chance to massively up their stocks and rankings with a solid showing Sunday, Nov. 20, at the Keystone Classic at Penn.

Kevin Devoy, Drexel -
The Dragon gave 141 a run last year, and he didn't have the results he anticipated. Back down at 33, a weight he won the EIWAs in, let's see if we get a renewed Devoy. He knocked off Mason Beckman and a number of other credentialed 133-pounders two years ago. Devoy is a great scrambler and a good turner. While Cortez and Forys look head and shoulders above, it's smart to remember that when Devoy was last at 133, he was ranked similarly.

Te'Shan Campbell, Pittsburgh - I liked Campbell's game last year as a true freshman. Seeing him down at 165 surprises me, as I viewed him as a particularly large 174 a year ago. His results so far have been solid. In a field with Walsh, Przybysz, and Joseph, he has an opportunity to up his stock. While he will struggle with Joseph's output, he could present some positional challenges for the PSU freshman. Against Walsh, if he can stay at home and avoid Walsh's unique positions (good luck), there's potential for an upset.

Caleb Richardson, Penn - When Richardson is on, he's knocked off AJ Schopp, Geoff Alexander, and Rob Deutsch. However, he can have some low lows. The Penn senior is currently unranked, but one hot tournament against this field could put him right back on the map.

Bryce Brill, Northwestern - Three years into his career, and we haven't seen much of Brill. However, he's still yet to taste collegiate defeat, for what it's worth. The issue has always been health. Brill had some great attacks in high school, able to fire off a double leg from just about anywhere. With Andrew Howe in the room along with coach Matt Storniolo and Johnny Sebastian, Brill should be getting pushed. Finally healthy, I hope Monday morning's conversation is talking about another stud emerging at 157 in the form of Bryce Brill.

Johnny Sebastian, Northwestern - Different name, same school, similar story. The talent was never a question -- just health. Sebastian was the No. 1 guy coming out of high school. Back in full effect, look for the Bergen Catholic product to turn some heads. Though Casey Kent and the PSU duo present a real challenge, it wasn't that long ago that Sebastian would have been the simple pick to beat all three. If Sebastian wins a title here, he'll put himself right in the All-American conversation, if not more.
