Big man brackets in the fall aren't typically as big as the light and middle weights due to football, and while that is true this year as well, we have some pretty spicy entries that will make 220lbs a really fun weight. The top 5 in this bracket are rock-solid, and a number of guys with regional success will look to shake things up on the national level.

Are Tabor and Doolin Heading for a Finals Rematch?

Xavier Doolin and Bennett Tabor had a wild match this off-season at Rocky Mountain Nationals. Doolin looked dominant against Tabor for two and a half periods, running out to a 9-1 lead, but then Tabor reminded everyone why he's so dangerous when he took Doolin down and power-halfed him to his back late in the third. The match ended 9-6 and set the stage for an exciting potential rematch.

Tabor is the #4 220-pounder in the land and is an absolute monster. He'll be staying in state for college and will become part of the Minnesota Gopher big man tradition. Doolin is ranked 11th and is an uncommitted senior from Kansas City. That could change after his rock solid fall that has included undefeated weekends at Rocky Mountain Nationals and Fall Brawl and an 8-1 showing at Battle at the Burgh.

Looking to spoil the Tabor, Doolin reunion will be #9 Noah Pettigrew, #18 Logan Shephard, and Gage Cook who is just outside the rankings. Pettigrew, the Blair Academy junior, is committed to North Carolina and recently finished 3rd in a tough field at the Grappler Fall Classic. 

Shephard is an uncommitted junior from Massilon Perry, Ohio. He's had a productive off-season as well with a title at the IndianaMat Hoosier Preseason Open and a 7-2 showing at Battle at the Burgh. Shephard's most impressive win in that stretch came over #7 Evan Bates in Indiana.

Gage Cook is an Army West Point commit and a junior from Washington. He took a loss to Juan Mora at the Freakshow, but his Fargo Greco title and impressive resume suggest that he's more than capable of a nice rebound at Super 32.

Who Cracks This Solid Top 5?

Even though 220lbs is a weight with a pretty clear top 5, Super 32 is known for chaos, so we shouldn't be surprised to see some madness here. The most likely candidate for some madness could be Luke Walker of Waverly-Shell Rock in Iowa. While he's outside the rankings at the moment, he does own a 4th place finish at Fargo in 2019. His run there included a win over Gage Cook.

Before taking a loss to Lenny Pinto at Who’s #1, Rylan Rogers was the consensus #1 182-pounder in the country. On paper, he’ll be the favorite this weekend, but with six top-10 guys in the field, bringing home the belt is far from a done deal.
