24 Junior Freestyle Matchups You Can't Miss Tomorrow

warner.jpg

Although our own Willie Saylor is not with us in the FargoDome, he is still making sure you don't miss any important matchups tomorrow morning. He provided us a list of every ranked matchup for the Round of 16 in Junior men's freestyle, including some guys who graduated. For those guys who graduated and were ranked at the end of last year, they are represented by a "GR."

We HIGHLY recommend you set up alerts in FloArena for these guys, because you're not going to want to miss any of these.

100lbs

#16 Jacob Rundell (IL) vs #20 Jacob Moran (IN)

Interestingly, Rundell skipped Cadets after wrestling at the Schoolboy age level last year. Moran has had a great summer after not wrestling during the school year, including an NHSCA finals appearance.

113lbs

#17 Brandon Kaylor (WA) vs #11 Ben Kamali (MI)
#7 Aden Reeves (IA) vs #18 Riley Weir (OK)

How about a FloNats final in Kamali and Kaylor before the quarterfinals? Reeves and Weir give us a classic Iowa vs Oklahoma matchup.

120lbs

#13 Dylan D'Emilio (OH) vs Ridge Lovett (ID)
#1 Pat Glory (NJ) vs Mike Madara (PA)
#9 Tommy Hoskins (OH) vs #16 Drew Bennet (IA)
#8 Patrick McKee (MN) vs #20 Joseph Heilmann (NJ)

If this isn't proof that 120 is loaded, I don't know what is. Good thing matches are archived on FloArena, because odds are you won't be able to watch all of these at the same time.

126lbs

#14 Robbie Precin (IL) vs #15 Jake Gliva (MN)

That last name ring a bell?

138lbs

#5 Jaden Abas (CA) vs #15 Jack Davis (PA)

Well, these two put on some weight since last year, but it doesn't seem to have affected them too much.

145lbs

#4 Alex Lloyd (MN) vs Justin McCoy (PA)

Justin McCoy's reward for beating #5 Brock Mauller? Now he gets #4 Alex Lloyd.

152lbs

GR Alex Crowe (MN) vs Markus Hartman (IL)

Crowe had one loss this year, and is looking to close out his high school career with a stop sign.

170lbs

Zachary Braunagel (IL) vs GR Hayden Hastings (WY)
GR Andrew Berreyesa (NV) vs #13 Colt Yinger (OH)
#14 Tate Samuelson (CO) vs Leo Tarantino (NJ)

Apparently, we neglected just how tough 170 was. Tarantino can earn himself a lot of money for college tomorrow morning with just a couple wins.

195lbs

GR Jacob Warner (IL) vs #17 Ryan Yarnell (MO)
#19 Kaleb Reevs (IA) vs GR Colton Wolfe (NE)
#4 Joel Shapiro (IA) vs #11 Dakota Howard (OH)

A lot of Iowa flavor here, with Shapiro and Reeves on opposite sides. Warner is an Iowa commit, Spencer Lee's roommate, and could meet Reeves in the quarters.

220lbs

#8 Francis Duggan (IA) vs #16 Saylor Schmitt (MN)
#6 Tyler Curd (MO) vs #11 Zach Elam (MO)
#5 Jace Punke (IL) vs #18 Max Darrah (MO)

Tyler Curd and Zach Elam had an awesome final in the Missouri state freestyle tournament, with Curd coming out on top 8-7. He would need to make the finals to potentially get revenge on Jace Punke from Akron.

285lbs

#3 Anthony Cassioppi (IL) vs GR Aaron Costello (IA)
#5 Keaton Kluever (WI) vs GR Sammy Evans (TN)
#7 Paul Robinson (GA) vs #11 Montana Philliips (OK)
GR Brandon Reed (KY) vs GR Brandon Metz (ND)

Some real tasty matchups here. Cassioppi and Costello are both committed to wrestle for Iowa, and Metz will face Reed in a matchup for the best heavyweight named Brandon.
