Really? A kid who has not wrestled any matches of note in over 2 years, who has not shown the ability to control his weight, going to a D1 school that was once thought to be an emerging program that has failed to fulfill any of that promise, and he is going to start right away and qualify? Ronald was a fine age level wrestler at ages where there really is not much talent at the highest weight class. Not sure how that translates into D1 success.

Nickerson is getting desperate at Northern Colorado. Tucker said on TheOpenMat he was down to Little Rock (new program), Notre Dame (D2 school known for taking kids that matriculate from D1 programs. Last Chance U of the wrestling world) and Campbell (Kolat must be hurting for big boys). He noted that he "didn't want to hop on a bandwagon." Being irredeemably overweight and not competing the last 2 years of high school is certainly a new path. We'll see how this unfolds.

Gonna go ahead and put Tucker at a 0% chance of starting. With the chances of him being on the roster after this year also at 0%. If he is getting a scholarship then Nickerson's career as a head coach must be winding down. The only thing he will qualify for is diabetes.

Mueller said in an interview that the only reason he wrestled this year was because Louie couldn’t make 125 anymore

That's consistent with what I heard from a source as close to the situation as Mueller.

Again, this is no slight to Woods, I for one think he places next year on his way of becoming a 4x All-American. This will give Montini their first D1 NCAA All-American, with hopefully many more to come with Stiles, Christensen, Ragusin, Lewan and company.
It is a surprise that it would be their first. Who has the most? I would guess Mt Carmel, OP River For., or Sandburg but have no idea, maybe some old school dominant school like East Leyden or Providence.

Nice catch! Sorry my bad! I shouldn't of went off of memory. So many Sandburg kids went to U of IL which is why I think I made this mistake.

I am not affiliated with either school so you can debate this with the OPRF/Fenwick fans.
