Dustin Plott and Rocky Elam will meet at Who's #1 to determine who is the best 182 pounder in the country.
In one of the toughest Fargo brackets in recent memory, Plott and Elam were the highest placing non-graduated seniors. Two-time finalist Plott will carry the #1 ranking into the event on October 5th, and fourth place Elam will be the challenger ranked second.
A rising senior at Tuttle high school, we have the two-time state champ from Oklahoma rated as the second best prospect in the Class of 2020. The Oklahoma State commit is also #5 in the pound-for-pound rankings.
Elam was a Class 4 state champ this year for Staley high school in Missouri, and is #13 on the senior Big Board. He was a Cadet champ last year in Fargo and was third at 92kg in Akron.
Both wrestled in Super 32 last year, with Plott winning the 170lb weight over fellow WNO competitor Patrick Kennedy in the finals. Meanwhile, Elam finished third up at 182, losing to Abe Assad in the quarterfinals, who wrestled in Who's #1 last October.
