This high school season has flown by for everyone, except those that are actually competing and having to make weight since late-November or early December. Since that time, we have been able to see the emergence of plenty of wrestlers that were either not ranked or not amongst the top-ten of their respective weight classes. What all of these wrestlers have in common is that they have had the opportunity to attend prestigious national or regional in-season tournaments, which provided them with top-notch competition. That has allowed them to knock off some notable opponents and throw their names into the ring for a possible national ranking. While there are plenty of quality candidates, these are five wrestlers that have seen a significant rise in their stock since the beginning of the season. Listed next to each of their names are their national rankings (or lack thereof) from the preseason compared to now.
Garett Lautzenheiser (Louisville, OH) Unranked to #20 120 lbs
