Seeds and Brackets Released for NCAA Wrestling Tournament

Published

The NCAA rolled out their seeds and brackets Wednesday for the tournament and this is how it went for the Cowboys.

They started announcements for the top seeds via Twitter at 3:00 where we first found out that Nick Piccininni would be the No. 2 seed at 125.

It was then announced that Daton Fix would be the one seed at 133.

Then came the big one. Derek White is the No. 1 seed at heavyweight at the NCAA tournament. I’ll dive in deeper as I go into previews leading up to the NCAA tournament, but this is huge. White will be opposite Gable Steveson and Anthony Cassar and should have a very reasonable path to the finals of the NCAA tournament.

Here are the all of the seeds and first round match-ups for the Cowboys

125 — No. 2 Nick Piccininni vs. Bryce West (Northern Illinois)
133 — No. 1 Daton Fix vs. winner of Devan Turner (Oregon State) / Zach Trampe (Binghamton)
141 — Kaid Brock No. 15 vs. Bryan Lantry (Buffalo)
149 — Kaden Gfeller No. 7 vs. Ryan Blees (Va. Tech)
165 — Joe Smith No. 33 vs. Tyler Marland (Northwestern)
174 — Jacobe Smith No. 7 vs. Drew Hughes (Michigan State)
184 — Dakota Geer No. 26 vs. Nick Reenan (NC State)
197 — Preston Weigel No. 3 vs. Jacob Seely (Northern Colorado)
285 — Derek White No. 1 vs. winner of Brandon Ngati (WVU) / Anthony Pelusi (FM)

Here are the complete brackets.
