Projected Matches:

125- Eddie Ventresca vs Nico Provo

Ventresca comes in here as the favorite and should be able to grab a win here, but looking at the only common opponent they have this may be a closer match than what it looks like on paper.

133- Sam Latona vs Jackson DiSario

At 133 this is one of the matches that Virginia Tech should be shooting to get bonus points in as Latona is a massive favorite here. The win should not be any trouble here and Vtech should come out to a decent lead after two.

141- Tom Crook vs Jason Miranda

Another match in the favor of Virginia Tech with Tom Crook looking very good this season, he should be able to get the win here but most likely a closer decision victory.

149- Caleb Henson vs Jaden Abas

This is a very interesting match at 149, Henson looks like the clear favorite heading into it but Abas has had some very good matches throughout the course of his career so this one may be a toss up should Abas wrestle good. I would give the decision victory to Henson as of now.

157- Bryce Andonian vs Daniel Cardenas

Andonian is one of the other guys for Virginia Tech that should be looking to grab bonus points in their match. He is coming into this match as a big favorite and a major is somewhat expected.

165- Connor Brady vs Shane Griffith

Griffith is by far the best guy on this Stanford lineup and is a pretty big favorite to win this match, Brady held his own against National Champ O’Toole so this should be a fun one to see. Griffith would be the favorite to win by decision.

174- Mekhi Lewis vs Tyler Eischens

Mekhi has been coming off of a couple rough losses but did just pick up a good win over Mizzou’s Peyton Mocco. Eischens is solid at 174 but Mekhi should be able to overwhelm him with his offense.

184- Hunter Bolen vs Nick Addison

Bolen has been looking good and just avenged his losses to Kaleb Romero at CKLV moving up a spot in the rankings. He is coming into this match as a pretty big favorite and will most likely be able to pick up a major or a tech.

197- Andy Smith vs Nick Stemmet

Smith is another guy who had a good showing at the CKLV. Stemmet should be able to hold a decently close matchup here but Smith should be able to get the win at 197.

285- Hunter Catka vs Seamus O’Malley

Catka is a massive favorite here and should be able to pick up bonus points looking at his performance this season. Catka is one of the guys for Virginia Tech that will need to step it up this season if they want to keep moving up the rankings.
