2021-22 NCAA DI Rankings


Not many of our P4P'ers wrestled last week and none of them lost, so the only change is the addition of Nick Suriano, who announced he would be making his triumphant return to collegiate wrestling by furthering his athletic and academic career at the University of Michigan. 

Suriano hasn't wrestled an NCAA match since he won Rutgers' first national title back in March of 2019, but his record in the three years he was rostered is extremely good. In 2017 he was the third seed but did not compete due to injuries. He placed second and first the next two years. Nick Lee took fifth twice, then received the second seed in the canceled 2020 tournament, then won in 2021. We're giving the nod to Nick in this one on account of the extra season of competition and more recent championship, which leaves Suriano just above Brooks and RBY.

Plenty of room to quibble and disagree about placements but Suirano's career is one of the most elite among active NCAA wrestlers no matter how you slice it. 

Please also note, (we're begging you to note this) P4P rankings involve slightly different criteria than individual weight-class rankings. P4P weights career accomplishments and dominance more heavily and are less prone to seasonal fluctuations. They are more robust, if you will. So do not be surprised if a wrestler is placed above another wrestler in P4P, but below the same wrestler in the weight-class rankings. It happens!
