NCAA Rankings 2018-19

P4P Jason Nolf

Vincenzo Joseph is the first Nittany Lion starter from 157 to 197 to take a loss. He drops a few spots after getting beat by Alex Marinelli, but does not fall below the Hawkeye, as pound-for-pound rankings put more weight on past results than the weight class rankings, and the two-time NCAA champ still has a stronger historical resume than the Bull. At least for now. 

Marinelli does make a big leap up in the rankings to #11, ahead of his teammate, Spencer Lee, who slips another spot after a second consecutive loss to Sebastian Rivera. Sea Bass moves up to #10 thanks to his undefeated season. 

Gable Steveson drops out of the rankings after his loss to Anthony Cassar. As a true freshman, Steveson does not have the cushion that previous years' results would provide. Cassar nabs that final position after winning Big Tens.
