    Division I: 152 pounds


    Another weight with three of the nation's top twelve wrestlers, with the added attraction of a potential state champ vs. state champ finals bout. One of the biggest moments of the scholastic wrestling season came the first Saturday of February when No. 4 Jaden Mattox (Central Crossing) made an absolute statement during the Rieman Invitational at Delaware Hayes. He knocked off nationally ranked 145 pound wrestler Dominick Demas (Dublin Coffman) by a 14-5 major decision in the semifinal, before out-lasting No. 5 David Carr (Massillon Perry) in the championship bout. Both Mattox and Carr are juniors with a pair of state finals appearances, Mattox won state last year while Carr has a pair of titles; last year's title for Carr came in another champ-champ showdown when he beat Demas.

    In the district final this past Saturday, Mattox upended No. 12 Connor Brady (Olentangy Liberty) by a 1-0 score. This was the second straight year that Mattox beat Brady at the district level, though the previous year at 132 it was in the semifinal round; Brady placed fourth at state last year, but was third at this year's Ironman and (competing at 145) fifth at the Super 32 Challenge. As a result, Mattox and Carr were seeded into opposite half-brackets. Brady is in Carr's half on the basis of finishing second to Mattox in the district tournament, and the draw has made the Brady vs. Carr match a quarterfinal bout on Friday morning.

    I thought Verkleeren was no longer going to be a Cyclone?

    Also see Dresser and Gable Steveson recently started following each other on twitter. I know KJ and Gadson and staff have been working on getting Gable to Iowa State for a couple years.

    Would like to see Kyven stay on CRTC/CWC and maybe get volunteer coaching position or director of Operations

    You sure about that? His brother is at Minny, and I do think it will be a huge surprise if he goes somewhere else, but if he's already committed, why is he making a commitment announcement "soon"?

    He has been messing around about his commitment for 6 months or so.

    I fully expect him to be a gopher, but maybe there is a chance

    Sounds like he hurt his knee several weeks ago and his ACL gave out in the semis. Lost on a controversial last second takedown in the finals tonight. Several pics I've seen on twitter show the clock at 0:00 before he was taken down. Crazy stuff.

    Looked to me like DeSanto got the takedown. Lee was clearly huurting. But DeSanto was relentless. Good match
