OSU Wrestling: New Individual Coaches Rankings Released Ahead of Conference Tournaments

All Cowboys are inside the top 20.

These rankings are about to really matter.

The NCAA released on Thursday a new set of individual coaches rankings for the third time this season before conference tournaments get going. The Big 12 Wrestling Championship will be March 9-10 in Tulsa. These are the rankings used to help determine seeding for the NCAA Wrestling Championship, which will be March 21-23 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Here’s a look at the individual rankings for Oklahoma State.

Weight Wrestler Ranking Last Ranking
125 Troy Spratley 10 9
133 Daton Fix 2 2
141 Tagen Jamison 8 8
149 Jordan Williams 18 17
157 Teague Travis 10 10
165 Izzak Olejnik 7 4
174 Brayden Thompson 20 21
184 Dustin Plott 2 2
197 Luke Surber 20 22
285 Konner Doucet 11 8

With a couple of lower-ranked wrestlers moving up since the last set of rankings, all of OSU’s starting lineup is now ranked inside the top 20 of their respective weight class. Brayden Thompson and Luke Surber were just outside the top 20 at 174 and 197, respectively, last rankings, but both moved up to No. 20 this time around.

Four Cowboys dropped in the rankings, though. Izzak Olejnik (165) and Luke Surber (197) experienced the furthest plummets, as both fell three spots. It’s the first time this season Olejnik has been outside the top five at 165 pounds. Troy Spratley (125) and Jordan Williams (149) also each dropped a spot.

Daton Fix and Dustin Plott remain OSU’s highest-ranked wrestlers, ranked second at 133 and 184, respectively.

Based on this set of rankings, OSU would be projected to have four All-Americans finishing in the top eight — Fix, Plott, Olejnik and Tagen Jamison. A lot will obviously change, though, after conference tournaments and once action actually starts at the NCAA Wrestling Championship on March 21 in Kansas City, Missouri.
