NCAA Rankings 2017-18

184: Bo Knows

Emery Parker rumbled through the consolation bracket, winning eight straight matches after being upset by Chip Ness in the first round to become an "ultimate road warrior." Ness earned a surprise spot on the podium and a #7 ranking with his excellent tournament. Ryan Preisch fell in the blood round but stays ahead of Max Dean in the rankings, as Preisch pinned Dean in the EIWA finals and the two never faced off at the NCAAs. 

There was some more reshuffling further down the rankings, but no new 184-pounders earned a ranking and thus no one fell out of the rankings either.
