2023-24 Season Nebraska Team Preview


Nebraska is coming into the season with something to prove and a very tough lineup. They have Ridge Lovett coming out of redshirt, and a couple of transfers as well.

Projected Lineup:

125- Caleb Smith

133- Kyle Burwick

141- Brock Hardy

149- Ridge Lovett

157- Peyton Robb

165- Bubba Wilson

174- Elise Brown Ton

184- Lenny Pinto

197- Silas Allred

285- Owen Pentz


Two new guys to look at are Caleb Smith at 125 who transferred in from Appalachian State, he is currently ranked #14 in the country by Intermat but expect to see some big things from him this year.

The next guy is Owen Pentz at heavyweight, he is a transfer from North Dakota State where he was a 3x NCAA Qualifier with some big wins under his belt including former Nebraska wrestler Eric Schultz as well as Stephen Buchanan.

Brock Hardy, Ridge Lovett, and Peyton Robb back to back on this lineup is going to be very excited to watch. Hardy just won a bronze medal at the U23 world championships, Lovett is coming out of redshirt and is the number 1 ranked wrestler in the country by Intermat, and Robb is ranked 3rd in the country at the moment.

Bubba Wilson, Lenny Pinto, and Silas Allred are all around the 5-10 range on most rankings and you can expect all of them to be fighting for spots to All American in March, especially Allred who was last years Big Ten Champion.
