d3wrestle Preseason Rankings: 149

Next up is the always tough 149 lb. class.  Pflug was the 157 champ in 2006 while taking 3rd at 149 last season.  Osborn may move up to 149 as the defending 141 lb. champ.  Naig was the runner up at this weight in 2006 before missing last season.  He is expected to be back this year, however.  The notable newcomers are a pair of 3x state champs in Pyle from Kansas (Luther) and Lahar from Michigan (Olivet).
