Micic, Lee, Red- Breakdown


Recommended Posts

It is a bitter sweet to see these studs in the same weight class as seniors.

 

These are the only high school results between the three.

2014- Micic (Senior) 44-0 over Nick Lee (Freshman) 33-1 by score of 10-3 at 126lbs.

2016- Red (Senior) 44-0 over Nick Lee (Junior) 16-1 by score of 6-5 at 132lbs.

 

How many state titles between them? Lee 1, Red 4, and Micic 2? 

 

In college they have been an All-American nine times with three times each. Unless something bizarre happens, they will all AA again but 141 is stacked so you never know. 

 

Nick Lee

2018- freshman 33-7 (5th)

2019-  sophomore 31-4 (5th)

2020- junior 20-1 (COVID)

2021- senior 13-1 (National Champ)

202- Senior

 

Lee has a normal college trajectory. Five years with a redshirt. Lee's was the covid year. Is there anyway for him to get another year somehow? It seems crazy that these three's eligibility would be out this year at the same time knowing when Micic was a senior in high school, Red was a sophomore, and Lee was a freshman.

 

Stevan Micic

2015- Freshman 17-3 for Northwestern I think

2016- Olympic Redshirt Freshman 0-0

2017- Redshirt Freshman 29-7 (4th)

2018- Sophomore 26-3 (2nd)

2019- Junior 19-1 (3rd)

2020- Senior 0-0

2021- Redshirt Senior 0-0

2022- Senior

 

Micic will have been in college for eight years. He is listed as a graduate student. 

 

Chad Red

 

2017- Redshirt Freshman 17-3

2018- Freshman  26-11 (7th)

2019- Sophomore- 24-13 (8th)

2020- Junior 19-7 (covid/Olympic redshirt?)

2021- Senior 16-6 (6th)

2022- Senior

 

Red has a normal trajectory except for COVID happening.

I don't see Lee losing to Red ever again.  Not impossible for Red to beat him, just not probable based on what we've seen in college between them.  In fact, I think a 100% Lee would have beat him in that epic state finals match.

 

Micic vs Lee is interesting.  Is Micic a full sized 141 after cutting to 57 kg (125 lbs) this summer for the olympics?  Micic is very good, but can he withstand the strength and non-stop motor the Lee brings?

 

I think Micic beats Red.  I think he is just a better wrestler at this point.  Just my gut.

 

1.  Lee

2.  Micic

3.  Red

Lee could redshirt this year as last year did not count. He won't, but he could.

 

Thanks for the write up.

It is both exciting & unfortunate to see all 3 of these great Indiana wrestlers at the same weight this year.

 

It is extremely interesting that Lee, someone who could easily be a multi-time State Champ ended his HS career with only one title. As a freshman he was just not ready to beat the senior 2-time defending champ Micic, who added a 3rd title after dispatching Lee. As a junior he faced off against 4-time undefeated in his HS career Red. What may be unknown to some is that Lee was injured that season & only wrestled enough to be qualified for the tournament. But that does not diminish the epic battle that we all got to witness under that lights.

 

I would say that Lee is clearly the favorite amongst them now after his NCAA title last spring & his strong showing at the Olympic Trials. Beating former NCAA Champ Nahshon Garrett, 3-time NCAA Champ Zain Retherford & 2-time NCAA Champ Yianni Diakomihalis.

 

But both Red & Micic have the ability to find the top of the podium as well. Let's hope all 3 have a healthy & successful year, & just maybe we see a 1-2-3 sweep by Indiana wrestlers - no matter who falls in what order.
