If Poznanski goes at 184 Rutgers may just have the potential to blank Clarion but that just seems highly unlikely with a few swing matches in the mix.
Getting to see Alvarez back in the mix now at 141 should be very interesting being he looked solid when we saw him compete back in 2020 down at 133 pounds.
Turley back in the lineup at 174 and O’Neill down to 165 is either going to work out very well for Rutgers or maybe cause a hinderance. However it will be good to see the All American back in action.
Joe Heilmann will be taking the mat after transferring from UNC. Another South Plainfield hammer wrestling for Rutgers and it should be a lot of fun for Rutgers fans to see him back in his home state.
