125

The return of Nathan Tomasello (Ohio State) to the mat on Friday means he jumps back into the rankings. In the preseason, he was third behind the returning NCA finalists at 125, Darian Cruz (Lehigh) and Ethan Lizak (Minnesota). Since both have been good while Tomasello was out of action, it makes sense to put him back in right behind Lizak. However, with basically no track record this season, Tomasello's ranking is tenuous. Any loss to someone behind him before he has a chance to earn quality wins would see him plummet. Sean Fausz (NC State) solidified his spot this week with a win over Nick Piccininni (Oklahoma State) in Italy. Adding that to his win over Taylor LaMont (Utah Valley) earlier in the season, Fausz's resume is starting to look strong. Piccininni is without a big win officially, since his win over Cruz at the All-Star was unofficial. He falls to seventh but could fall much further if he loses again.

Luke Welch (Purdue) beat Drew Mattin (Michigan) for the second time this season, dropping the Wolverine and moving past him to #16. With Tomasello's return, Ryan Millhof (Arizona State), who did not wrestle for the Sun Devils this week, gets pushed out.
