College Wrestling Fan's Guide To Super 32

As one of the crown jewels of the high school wrestling season, Super 32 has long been a mandatory stop for college recruiters. That also means it's a great opportunity for current college fans to get a glimpse of the future stars of their sport. 

And it's not just an opportunity to get recruiter eyeballs on your matches. The best high schoolers are entering to test themselves against the best and prepare themselves to for the next level, whether they've committed or not. 

As such, there are heaps of competitors in this year's field in Greensboro that already know where they will be matriculating after they graduate high school.

Below are all wrestlers we could find in the list of registered athletes who have already committed to a D1 collegiate program. Let us know if we missed anyone!

Arizona State

#12 at 152 Michael Kilic

#13 at 152 Kaleb Larkin

The Sun Devils have two middleweights with entered, and though they are ranked at the same division, Kilic is slated to compete at 145 at the event, whereas Larkin is registered at 152.


Army West Point

#11 at 126 Braden Basile

#15 at 285 Gage Cook

#19 at 160 Gunner Filipowicz

HM at 132 Cole Thomas

HM at 145 Jaime Rivera

A solid squad of Black Knights will be in Greensboro. 


Bucknell

#9 at 220 Logan Shepard


Cal Baptist

#3 at 152 Mitchell Mesenbrink

Look for the Lancers' recruitment efforts to start picking up as this is the final year that they will not be eligible for the NCAA postseason as they complete their transition from NAIA to NCAA D1. 


Campbell

#11 at 160 Domonic Baker


Columbia

#4 at 145 Richard Fedalen

HM at 126 Kai Owen

Fedalen is also #54 on the recently updated Class of 2022 Big Board. 


Cornell

#5 at 152 Erik Gibson


Drexel

#18 at 132 Jordan Soriano

HM at 113 Gabe Giampietro


Illinois

#1 at 220 Christian Carroll

Recently minted head coach Mike Poeta has got a crop of talent at Super 32. Christian Carroll may bonus his way to a belt.

Little Rock

#10 at 285 Keith Miley

#18 at 160 Kodiak Cannedy

Great to see one of the newest D1 programs in the country hauling in more ranked recruits.


Maryland

#16 at 145 Kal Miller


Michigan

#5 at 195 Rylan Rogers

HM at 145 Nathan Jerore


Michigan State

#14 at 160 Ceasar Garza


Minnesota

HM at 145 Cody Chittum

Chittum being an honorable mention rather than ranked is a matter of circumstance and has nothing to do with whether the Tennessean is good enough to be ranked in the top 20. As the #1 recruit in the class of 2023, he most certainly is, his coaches at the Boom Rank requested he be taken out of the rankings because he wasn't planning on wrestling a regular folkstyle season and was going to focus solely on freestyle until he enrolls at Minnesota. 

We're assuming he's entering Super 32 for both the competition and for a chance to add a bad ass belt to his trophy case, but should he continue to enter folkstyle competitions he will likely be placed in the rankings once again. 


Missouri

#4 at 132 Zeke Seltzer

#6 at 182 Clayton Whiting


Navy

#15 at 132 Jake Niffenegger


North Carolina State

#1 at 145 Jackson Arrington

#3 at 182 Matthew Singleton

#3 at 285 Chase Horne

Three future Wolfpackers are registered, and they are big dogs indeed. If we had to predict which college will "win" Super 32, and we don't have to but we will anyway, it would be NC State.

#13 at 113 Cole Hunt


Northern Colorado

#16 at 182 Andrew Donahue


Northern Iowa

#4 at 126 Cory Land

One of the few ranked wrestlers of the Deep South, Alabaman Cory Land will be heading north to Greensboro for the tournament, and then future north to Cedar Falls to continue his academic and athletic career.  


Northwestern

#9 at 182 Joseph Martin


Ohio State

#1 at 132 Nic Bouzakis

#2 at 170 Rocco Welsh

#4 at 195 Seth Shumate

#20 at 145 Gavin Brown

Another potential collegiate "winner" of Super 32 would be the Buckeyes, as they are sending four ranked guys including three of their bluest chips.

#8 at 145 Jude Swisher

The Movement continues in Philadelphia as the Quakers have another strong recruiting class. Penn faithful will be able to catch several of them on the mat at Super 32.


Penn State

#1 at 160 Levi Haines

Just one commit for the Nittany Lions, but he's a pretty important one.
