Nick Feldman and Kyle Haas, two massive recruits (and massive guys in general) will battle for light heavyweight supremacy at 2020's Who's #1.

Currently holding down the #1 spot in the latest national high school rankings is Nick Feldman, a National Prep champion wrestling out of Eastern Pennsylvania powerhouse Malvern Prep. His opponent is #2 in the rankings, Kyle Haas, an Oklahoma State commit and 2019 cadet world team member from Maize, Kansas.

Haas is one of three future Cowboys is both ranked in the top 15 on the Class of 2021 Big Board and is also competing at WNO. Haas is ranked #10, Travis Mastrogiovanni is #11 (160 pounds), and Victor Voinovich is #15 (152 pounds).  

Feldman will be commanding the attention of wrestling coaches from across the nation as the uncommitted rising junior checks it at #11 on the Class of 2022 Big Board.

Haas brings an international pedigree to the bout, as he placed eighth at the 2019 UWW Cadet World Championships. That was after Haas burst on to the scene in 2018 as a Fargo cadet runnerup in both Freestyle and Greco. Kyle would follow that up by winning folkstyle nationals in the spring of 2019 before making winning both the 2019 freestyle and Greco UWW cadet world teams trials; however, Haas would only compete overseas in freestyle. 

Watch Haas make the cadet freestyle world team over fellow WNO participant Seth Shumate, and make sure to pay close attention to the final seconds of the first period:

Haas would remain perfect for the rest of the season until losing in the finals of the 2020 Kansas State High School Championship finals. Current Tar Heel true freshman Cade Lautt took out Haas 3-1 with a buzzer-beater takedown.

Feldman had an impressive 2019 season as well, winning a cadet Greco stop sign at Fargo and placing third freestyle division. Nick then earned second place at the Walsh Jesuit Ironman, first at Beast of the East, second at Powerade, then runner-up again at Escape the Rock (Malvern Prep had quite the schedule last season).

Feldman capped off that gauntlet with a victory over prep school rival Peyton Craft of Blair Academy in the finals of the 2020 National Prep Championships. 

Watch Feldman earn the victory over Craft, the current #3 195-pounder in the country, in dramatic fashion:

Feldman is entering his junior year at Malvern Prep, a team that really hit their stride last season. The program finished third at Ironman, third again at Beast of the East, second at Powerade, first at Escape the Rock, then third at National Preps. 

Brecksville outplaced Malvern at Beast, whereas Malvern finished ahead of Brecksville at Ironman. Blair and Wyoming Seminary were the only other teams to out-point Malver in any of the competitions the suburban Philadelphia team entered last season.

As for what we'll see on the mat, fingers crossed for some upper body throws and big-man scrambles. Both wrestlers can move and aren't afraid to let it rip. We'll see this showdown in Austin this October third!

Entering its eighth year, Who's #1 has featured the nation's best high school wrestlers in the country year in and year out from coast to coast. After this year, 29 states will have been represented on Who's #1 cards. I don't think you will be surprised by the states that have had the most wrestlers throughout the history of Who's #1, but still cool to see nonetheless.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that a historic conference like the Big 12, which currently has exactly 12 teams, will have a presence at the most prestigious high school event of the year. It also shouldn't come as a surprise that the historically best team from the Big 12, the Oklahoma State Cowboys, will be the team with the most recruits wrestling.

Every year since the inaugural event in 2013, Penn State has had at least one future wrestler competing at Who’s #1. While that's impressive, it's not necessarily surprising considering the recruiting hall Cael Sanderson and co. at State College bring in every year. This year is no different with one already signed recruit and three more potential recruits that have shown interest in PSU.
