The NCAA released the first of four coaches’ panel rankings for the 2018-19 wrestling season. The final rankings will be one of the tools used as part of the selection process to determine the qualifiers for the 2019 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. This year’s event is March 21-23 at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.

Wrestlers in each weight class will be measured by winning percentage, rating percentage index (RPI) and coaches’ rankings to earn spots in their qualifying tournaments for the 2019 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. The coaches’ rankings are compiled by a vote of coaches representing each qualifying tournament. For ranking purposes, coaches may only consider a wrestler that has been designated as a starter at a respective weight class.

Among the top-ranked wrestlers are six former national champions with Yianni Diakomihalis of Cornell (141), Jason Nolf of Penn State (157), Vincenzo Joseph of Penn State (165),  Mark Hall of Penn State (174), Myles Martin of Ohio State (184), and Bo Nickal of Penn State (197).

The additional top-ranked wrestlers at each weight class in the second edition of the rankings are: Sebastian Rivera of Northwestern (125), Stevan Micic of Michigan (133), Anthony Ashnault (149), and Gable Steveson of Minnesota (285)
