In 2019, Ohio finished 3rd in 16U freestyle and 2nd in Junior freestyle. While Ohio is bringing a decent roster with six nationally ranked guys, a couple of their best will be missing. Most notably, #1 at 106 Beric Jordan as well as graduated seniors Paddy Gallagher, Victor Voinovich, Alek Martin, and Logan Messer. Their Junior squad is adding depth with guys just on the outside looking in of the national rankings, but it would be pretty shocking if Ohio is able to repeat their success from last Fargo.

Junior Seth Shumate is no stranger to success in Fargo. The Ohio State commit dominated his way to a title in both freestyle and Greco in 2019. Shumate will get a chance at redemption over #4 Martin Cosgrove as he was listed on New Jersey's roster that was released late last week. Cosgrove pinned Shumate at Super 32 in the fall.

Watch Seth Shumate win the 2019 16U 195 lb Fargo title below.

Dylan Fishback is another top-10 nationally ranked 195-pounder from the Buckeye State. While Shumate was the D1 Ohio state champion at 195, Fishback was the D2 Ohio state champion at 195. Freestyle might be his best style. At the 2019 Cadet World Team Trials the Aurora native picked up wins over Cael Valencia, Manny Rojas, John Martin Best, and Elise Brown Ton. He will be attending NC State in the fall of 2022.

Watch Dylan Fishback take out Cael Valencia below.

220 pounder Ben Vanadia has already been on Purdue's campus and training with his Boilermaker teammates for a month. He was the favorite to win Ohio state titles in both 2020 and 2021 before COVID and an injury forced him out of both tournaments.

Carter Neeves is definitely a name to circle. Just a freshman, he fell in the state finals this year, but was a Super 32 placer in the fall and had a great performance at 16U National Duals going 7-0 with wins over Sonny Sasso and McCrae Hagarty. 

Dillion Campbell and Joseph Blaze were Ohio state champions this year as freshman and sophomore, respectively.

Jake Niffenegger and Luke Geog were both state finalists and NHSCA finalists. Geog actually won NHSCAs while Niffenegger finished in 2nd place.
