Love seeing Billerman & Syra make the list. Here are a few other little guys for your watch list: Preston Haines, Dillion Graham, Charlie LaRocca, & Tony Wood.

Dickey is certainly deserving, but I 'believe' he is now a Freshman.

DM me any recent results so I can add them before Indianamat preview magazine comes out mid October. Normally magazine post top 10 middle schoolers and I’d like to make sure I have the right top 10. Also let me know if there is any kids that were held back that need to be added to the list.

Josh Barr is registered as home school in Michigan for Super 32. Is he officially enrolled in an Indiana school?

Not yet. I hear his mother is still in interview process at some of the local hospitals.

October was a busy month for some of the top middle school wrestlers.  Rankings have been updated with Super32, GFC, Preseason Nationals, and Freakshow results added.

Super32 was the toughest of the 4 tournaments, so those placing there made the biggest jumps.  Congrats to unranked Duke Myers for winning his bracket there.

Great job keeping this list updated MScholar! Josh Barr is a great talent and definitely deserving of the #1 spot if he resides in Indiana. If he hasn’t moved here yet, you may consider making him a footnote like SIG did last season.

Crown Point is coming. Add this strong 2023 class with Mendez, Roberson, and Bettich and Crown Point is going to be good for a long time. Add Goin and Willems with these ranked CP guys in this class.  #Bewarethedog

Had a few more on their too

27) Duke Myers-Bellmont 

81) Ryan Ford Indianapolis

93) Aidan Wallace-Indianapolis

 

 

I missed Myers, but the other 2 are not Indiana.  Ford is New Jersey and Wallace was Texas but I think New Jersey now.

If anyone has stats for VAC DM me or MScholar.  Those matches are huge predictors for future success, unfortunately it was not ran on track this year so I don't know how everyone did.  I look into these other kids as well.

Greenwood middle school has a couple of little monsters to keep an eye on this yr. 

Landon Maxwell : 7th grade 75lbs.

Jordan Jewel: 6th grade 80lbs.

Asher Harter: 6th grade 85lbs.

Aiden Harter: 7th grade 120lbs.

Nick Baugh: 7th grade 115lbs.

The list of up and coming Greenwood wrestlers is blowing up. Looking forward to some upsets this yr. These 5 kids are low key hard workers waiting to make their mark.
