Class of 2020 High School Big Board

Top 100 Seniors

The last 2020 Big Board was from August 2019. A lot has happened as some late bloomers emerged, and others have battled for position as they come into the home stretch of their high school career. The top of the board had a big shake up as Braxton Amos (WV) moves to #1. He is up from #3 and this contradicts the current weight class and pound for pound ranking. Amos missed some mat time early in his career, but has been a staple at major events since that time. AJ Ferrari (TX) and Dustin Plott (OK) have missed extended time (see Ranker’s Note), and have been pushed down the board just a bit. 

Hunter Catka (PA) and Lachlan McNeil (PA) both moved into the top 10. Catka put some injury issues behind him and has separated himself from the 285lb field. McNeil is still learning the folkstyle game and has flourished at Wyoming Seminary. 

Tyler Stoltzfus (PA) and Austin Boone (MI) came from outside the top 100 to land in the top 40. Stoltzfus took home Ironman and Powerade titles. Boone had a great showing finishing 3rd at Super32 and took home a title from Brecksville.

Dalton Harkins (PA) had a month-long run that put his name on every high school wrestling fan’s radar. He won a stacked bracket at Ironman, claimed another title the next weekend at Beast of the East, and closed the month with a 3rd place finish at Powerade. He was outside the top 200 coming into the year and climbed to #45.

Isaac Trumble (NE) and Shane Reitsma (NJ) are big movers landing in the just below the midpoint of the board. Trumble is a pinner and has pinned #11 Grady Greiss (NE) and #7 Cade Lautt (KS) this season at 220lbs. Reitsma is a New Jersey runner-up that had a strong showing at Powerade finishing 2nd to Stoltzfus. En route to that final he knocked off nationally ranked Lenny Pinto (PA) and Connor O’Neil (NJ). 

Caleb Tanner (OK) had a solid showing at Super32 finishing 4th and won the KC Stampede in his high school season debut. He made a big jump into the top 100. 

Trimming the board down to 100 wasn’t easy. There are quite a few guys with great resumes that could force their way into the top 100 with a good post season showing.

Ranker’s Note: Junior High and Freshman Big Boards will consist of 50 wrestlers, and Sophomore-Senior Big Boards will consist of 100 wrestlers moving forward. Being a recruiting board, folkstyle will have a stronger influence on position. Being available to wrestle is also a component that will be factored into the ranking. Athletes not competing will be pulled from weight class rankings, but will stay on the Big Board with adjustment to the ranking factoring in why they aren’t competing. Weight class rankings are current as of January 2nd, but the results were considered through time of posting on January 7th.
