You know high school wrestling season is here when it's Ironman time. 

For over 25 years now, the nation's top teams and individuals have traveled to Ohio for what is annually the best in-season tournament in the country. 

Today we released national team rankings in which 16 of the top 25 squads are Ironman participants. 

The action kicks off Friday at 10AM. Below are the seeds (barring weight changes and scratches). Top seeds are listed with their rankings, which will be updated Wednesday.

2020 Title Contenders: 149 Pounds

null

A lot of heavy hitting 149-pounders used up their final year of NCAA eligibility last season, including the champ Anthony Ashnault, three-time All-American Micah Jordan, and 2018's fourth-place finisher Mitch Finesilver. A solid crop of contenders return, however, to a weight class that is very much up for grabs.

For as gnarly as the hunt for the 125-pound NCAA title looks to be, 133 is going to be an absolute bloodbath. Although the weight class loses two All-Americans to graduation in John Erneste and Ethan Lizak, and it looks like 2018 third-placer Tariq Wilson will be bumping up to 141 for the 2020 season, the weight class does expect to see the return of Seth Gross, the 2019 133-pound champ.
