Among the most heavily recruited tournaments in the country, Super 32 provides a platform for prospects to catch the eyes of college coaches - there were 150 of them in attendance this year.
We'll identify the uncommitted guys that impressed to give you a 'stock up' report before we roll out more extensive grades when we update the Big Boards in the coming weeks.
Johnny Lovett (FL) & Devin Schwartzkopf (MO) - 145lb. Juniors
Rare uncommitted Seniors, Lovett was 4th with wins over PA Runner-Up Caleb Dowling, Matt Lee, Luka Wick (who beat Fidel Mayora), and Schwartzkopf. For Schwartzkopf, it's his second straight outstanding performance in a major as he was 3rd at FloNationals. Here he beat Donathan and Manzona Bryant. College scouts should be calling soon.
Sonny Santiago - 152lb. Junior - California
Ranked 13th in his weight class and 35th on the JR Big Board, Santiago was already a valued commodity. But his performance in Greensboro should open some eyes (and checkbooks) even more.
He lost just once (a 3-2 match to defending champ Ryan Anderson) and then went on to beat Thayne Lawrence, Aaron Gandara, and another returning champ, Brevin Balmeceda, who was a consensus #1/#2 guy. That run vaulted him to #5 at 152.
Jeremiah Reno - 113lb. Junior - Missouri
I wrote in a a couple articles how this was a crucial event for Reno, who has had really strong performances in the past, but who was sometimes inconsistent. Reno answered the bell as he beat five ranked guys. His only loss was to then-#1 Greg Diakomihalis in a 3rd place performance that included a dominant 8-2 win over Iowa commit Cullan Schriever.. Now ranked 4th, Reno should be looked at as a very solid option and perhaps a career 125lber.
Tristan Lujan (CA) & Login Agin (OH) - 113lb. Juniors
Reno wasn't the only big winner in the 113lb. bracket. Agin beat Schriever twice and Lujan beat Agin in consi semi's to emerge as very interesting 125/133 prospects.
Shayne Van Ness - 126lb. Sophomore - New Jersey
The performance will go down in the lengthy lore of Super 32 history. It was Adam Busiello, looking to earn his 4th high school S32 belt, that was trying to make history. It turned out it would be Van Ness, a back up for Blair Academy as a Freshman, who would ultimately create an unforgettable run.
Blair teammates and college coaches who have had Van Ness in their rooms have spoke glowingly about him. But no one was prepared for this run. He beat Busiello himself, PA State Runner-Up Colton Camacho, and then a pair of NC State commits in Kai Orine and Ryan Jack. No one came within three points of him and he was always offensive. Stock - through the roof.
Clayton Ulrey - 160lb. Junior - Pennsylvania
The kid loves wrestling, and he's getting better and better. His only loss at S32 was to Facundo.
Check out this ledger:
PA Big School - 5th
FloNationals - 4th
Fargo - 5th
Super 32 - 3rd
And he's just entering his Junior season. Get on him.
Gerrit Nijenhuis - 182lb. Junior - Pennsylvania
Nijenhuis has been a name on the radar of many. His good performance wasn't exactly a surprise, but with his wins over Foca and Turley (both seniors), Nijenhuis is indisputably one of the best upperweight recruits of 2020. Watch him rally back from a deficit here.
