Top 5 Studs To Watch At Eastern States

It's time for the Eastern States and Loch Sheldrake, NY will be the site of some serious action this weekend. In the 14 years that Eastern States has been in existence it has produced 10 NCAA All-Americans and hundreds of state champions. The 2017 installment of the Eastern States, New York's toughest tournament, promises to deliver some of the east coast's top talent. Check out the top 5 studs taking the mat this weekend.

113 lbs, Greg Diakomihalis, Hilton High School

The funkier of the Diakomihalis bros will be wrestling this weekend, Greg is a ton of fun to watch and has some amazing scramble skills.

120 lbs, Adam Busiello, Eastport-South Manor HS

Ranked No.1 Nationally (at 113 lbs)

Busiello wrestles with a great combination of solid technique, an offensive output that is impossible for most high school guys to keep up with, and a mean streak that about two feet wide.

132 lbs, Jacori Teemer, Long Beach HS

Ranked No. 9 Nationally

Teemer may not have the offensive firepower of say, Busiello, but make no mistake, he is the real deal. His defense is a three headed monster. He can drop his hips away from you and make it impossible for either of you to score, which gets frustrating. He can drop his hips directly on you score in more conventional ways. And if you happen to get to get to his legs he can scramble with the best in the country.

138 lbs, Vito Arujau, Syosset HS

Ranked No. 1 Nationally

A Cadet World Silver medalist this past September, Vitali has the best sense of timing on leg attacks that you will see at a high school level.

152 lbs, Frankie Gissendanner, Pennfield

Ranked No. 7 Nationally

Explosive from the outside, heavy handed on the inside, Frankie Gissendanner can beat you a number of different ways. He has the ability to put anyone in the country upside down and in danger. Check out what he did to make the Fargo finals.
