That's a nice class. Nice to get three of the top kids from our state, and I love the new heavy and Konrath. Those guys have high ceilings.

Good showing by all the badger recruits from WI at the state tournament.  They should provide good talent and depth.  Looking at our roster when they would be redshirt freshman:

125: Lantz -sr (assuming he can make it there), Cullen - Jr
133: Stickley-Jr, Konrath - fr
141: Martin - Jr, Rowh - sr
149: Bahr- fr, Model, fr
157: Wick-SO, sharenbrock- sr
165: Wick-SO, Quintanilla- Jr
174: Covaciu-so, Dow-(redshirting)
184: Christensen-Sr, Hamauer - fr
197: Ritter-Jr, Reinhardt-Jr
285: Hillger-fr

Looks like the following class will need a 125 and a 184/197 to help replace Christensen and Ritter/Reinhardt who would graduate the year after. Not sure of potential 125's, but Krattiger would seemingly fit in well if he was interested in coming to UW.

Think Konrath will be at 125 after Johnny leaves.

That would be ideal assuming he could make the cut. I wasn't sure if that was possible with him wrestling 132 this year. I assumed in 2 years he wouldn't be any smaller...or it would be a tough cut.

boy having both krattinger and joles come in at 84 and 97 would be a good fit since they are both jr this year.

I was thinking Hunter Lewis but he is only a SO this year right?

Hillger will be wrestling in the Pittsburgh Wrestling Classic (Dapper Dan) later this month.  He will wrestle a nationally ranked wrestler from PA, hope he does well.

Hillger won 3-0. The guy he wrestled was ranked #7 in the country at heavyweight.

Why don't the Badgers recruit the very best senior 113 pounder out there? Recruiting some guy who is going to have to suck down (on his best day) to 125 is a losing proposition - we have seen it multiple times here at the UW. Having a kid cut hard to make the light weights is a recipe for failure. If you can't get the premier senior 125 pounder out there who is lifer at 125, so-be-it. But it does no one any good to bring in a 133 pounder and try to suck him down - on his best day he will simply be a journeyman. Better off to bring in a "lesser" wrestler and try to develop him into a reasonable DI wrestler.

Merely having an opinion doesn't necessarily make it a good one

I have no idea how difficult the cut would be for Konrath to make 125.  It could be not difficult at all.

I favor this strategy also and see many college teams leave those little guys hangin', when they could have brute force in upper classmen later. Even college kids keep growin'. Cripes, they eat enough.
