Season outlook:
W&J Returns their entire team except for 3 graduating seniors and brings in another large recruiting class. The Presidents will look to fill the void left by National Qualifiers Josh Etzel and Dave DiBenedetto. The team will be led by Nick Carr who transferred in last season and whose only loss was in the NCAA Finals while wrestling up 2 weight classes. They also return National Qualifier Jacob Spearman and Regional Placer Sonnieboy Blanco. The team returns a lot of depth and is once again young with only two seniors.
