Griffith is the big want of course. Abas would be another Stanford guy I'd want. Him or Robinson could bump to 157 and allow Carr to go 165 potentially?

I think portal will be pretty darn active this offseason. This is just the beginning.

That's a lot of interesting names. Ditto on Griffith for sure.

I've always been surprised Verk never quite figured things out at the college level. I'll be curious to see how he does at another school.

I wonder how long after NCAAs we'll end up hearing whether our upperclassmen are going to stick around or not.

Interesting that both Verkleeren and Busiello leaving PSU at 149. Figured either one could give Bartlett a run, but must not be that close. I guess they have Van Ness coming in also. Either one would fit in nicely for us going 49/57 allowing Robinson the other and Carr to bump (no inside info here, just wishing!) Would figure Manville and Nevelis would think about transferring also as they appear stuck behind younger wrestlers.

Wonder why Real Woods is not in the portal?

I think a lot will depend on which schools are going to fund the additional year for all these guys. Also, I think some programs have roster limits. Are these going to get modified? There is going to be 6 classes trying for 9.9 scholarships and 2 true freshmen classes next year. Going to get interesting

Type I diabetic. Has to be super tough to manage.

Some will be 7 classes. Kem from Iowa would be taking his 7th if he came back.

Maybe Real is waiting to get his Stanford degree 1st.

I think Bartlett is going to be a 141 and Van Ness will be a hammer at 149. I’m surprised Busiello hasn’t figure it out yet.

Kyle Parco from Fresno State has really impressed. Lost to Sasso 11-10 in a wild match. Portal says he's transferring to Utah Valley so we'll continue to run into him in conference.
