Can Shumate Punch Through at Super 32?

Seth Shumate is the #2 man at this weight, and his titles at Fargo and Iron Man give him the strongest resume of anyone in the bracket. He's the favorite, but it's worth noting that he hasn't made it on the podium in his first two attempts. He had 3-2 performances as a freshman and as a sophomore, but the Buckeye bound junior is too good to count out.

The #5-ranked Brandon Hoselton knows how to get it done at Super 32 as he was a finalist at this weight a year ago. Hoselton's path to the finals last year went through Indiana champ #7 (220lbs) Evan Bates. The match was a quick one as Hoselton countered a Bates shot with a throw that ended with a first-period fall. Both Indiana state champs are uncommitted seniors and fascinating prospects. They'll present serious challenges to Shumate.

All of these guys have seen action this fall. Shumate dropped a tough battle at Who's #1, Hoselton went undefeated up at 220 at the AWA Duals, and Bates finished second at the IndianaMat Hoosier Preseason Open dropping his finals match to #18 Logan Shephard who will be competing in the 220 bracket at Super 32.

Who Could Climb the Rankings?

Two more top-10 195-pounders sit at the top of this weight in #9 Martin Cosgrove of New Jersey and #10 Gavin Nelson of Minnesota. Cosgrove has gone 17-0 this fall between the Olympic Club Duals and Battle at the Burgh while Nelson is ready to prove himself at 195 since moving up from his Minnesota state finals appearance at 170 this spring. These two met at last year's Super 32 where Cosgrove got the 5-0 win.

Franklin Cruz sits at #11 in the rankings while Michael Tal-Shahar occupies the #17 spot. Cruz, the Colorado native was a Reno champ last year and has long been capable of achieving at high levels at this weight. Tal-Shahar's highs are really high, but he also drops matches from time to time. For example, he beat Gavin Nelson at last year's Super 32 and went undefeated this fall at Rocky Mountain Nationals, but on the flip side, he finished seventh at the Grappler Fall Classic with two uncharacteristic losses.

Christian Carroll is surging this fall after an outstanding showing at the Grappler Fall Classic. He was injured last season, so his name might have slipped some people's minds. Also, he was at 160 at this event last year, but his results at GFC came at 220 where he took out #9 Noah Pettigrew and #16 Juan Mora. 195 seems to be his weight for the remainder of the season, and he could be a serious factor in this bracket.

Cosgrove, Nelson, Cruz, Carroll, and Tal-Shahar all present problems for the top guys at this weight, and if they're locked-in, they could do some serious damage.

Don't count the unranked guys out at this weight either. In particular, Cornell commit Jack Darrah has seen a lot of action this fall with an undefeated weekend at Rocky Mountain Nationals and a solid showing at Battle at the Burgh. A couple of college commits are worth watching here as well. Wyoming bound Dorian Walters and future Oregon State Beaver Isaiah Anderson both have solid results and could do some damage here.
