2021-22 NCAA DI Rankings

A Surtain Shade Of Green

Codi Russell of App State competed at the Mountaineer Invitational up at 133, so he'll be ranked there, assuming he continues to fend off his teammate, Sean Carter, for the starting gig. 

The trend running through the majority of weight classes this week is that we find most of the top 15 or so standing pat due to the higher-ranked wrestler prevailing in most cases, whereas chaos reigned in the lower ranks and the honorable mentions. 

There was also a fair amount of wins over ranked opponents by wrestlers we are still assuming will not be the starters, which we will make note of but will not have much of an effect on the rankings. 

There are examples of those phenomena right off the bat at 125, as there are no changes from numbers 1 through 18. Additionally, NC State's Stevo Poulin beat Anthony Molton, however, we still expect #10 Jakob Camacho to be the starter for the Wolfpack. 

As Stevo would likely leapfrog Molton if he were the starter, this is not a drag on Molton's ranking, and he stays as an honorable mention. 

And in the lower half of the rankings, Jake Ferri of Kent State lost to Caleb Smith of App State and Jacob Moran of Indiana. Ferri drops out of the rankings and Moran slides into the Honorable Mentions as a result. 

Jaret Lane is undefeated on the season, as is Dylan Shawver, and they move into the final two enumerated spots. 

At the Journeymen Collegiate Classic, Ryan Miller beat Carter Bailey of Lehigh, who he third on the Mountain Hawks' depth chart but has some solid wins on the season, so it's enough to move Miller into the HMs.
