Earlier it was said that Layton was the best at 120 and 126 if he goes up but York kid did beat him twice this year 

Yeah.  The person said he would win 120 or 126 in any division.   Heard have him two chances and he couldn’t do it.

I stand corrected. I was misinformed that he wrestled him once and had won. I was also told that he had beat vargo.

My apologies

Y’all really are sleeping on kids from the Myrtle Beach area, Handl from Conway is a monster and so is the 106 from Carolina Forest (Bailey), went into overtime when bumped up to 113 vs Lopez of White Knoll, Carolina Forest also has some contenders at 126, 113, 138, 152, and 182

Guys that look to be in the conversation for Saturday night. By no means an exhaustive list. 

5A

106- Anderson, Butler (has some good wins up at 113) , Bailey, D'antico

113- Compton, Robinson, Colon, Lopez

120- Vincent, Snipes, Elrod

126- Vargo, Sturegon

132- Hunsberger, Wilkins 

138- Soriano, Rhue, Lawson, Heiselman, Murray, Garay

145- Amaker, Emery, Martinez-Salas, Scott

152- Ramirez, Kitts, Canady, Barron, McGee, Rogers (surprised he's down, I remember him looking huge last year)

160- Green, Cizmadia, Rundell, Cohen

170- Landl, Fazzone, McKnight, 

182- Stephenson, Haile

195- Hill, Carder, Kilgore

220- Fernicola, Dean, Dixon

HWT- Deep field actually but Obeso, Anderson, Wines, McCrae, and Petrick

I'd say only 2/3 weights have a head-and-shoulders, clear-cut favorite against the field (113 and 220 namely and I'd add Stephenson but Haile is solid and will make it fight); while a few more are pretty clear two horse races. Anderson should be filled with some competitve matches on the 5A mats.

5A predictions: finals preview. I tried to give some reasoning on these. Just my opinion folks don't get all butt hurt over it

106: Anderson is the clear favorite here but Baily only has one lost at 106 this year to the #2 ranked 4a NC 106, I hear upset bells a ringing)

1st Braedon Baily over 2nd Carter Anderson (upset alert!)

3rd Raleigh D’Antico over 4th Benjamin Guilman

113: Compton will walk to a state title

 1st - Chris Compton over 2nd -  Jacob Simmons

3rd – Eric Lopez over 4th Rico Robinson

120:

1st - Thomas Snipes (Think he’ll beat anyone by at least 4), over 2nd Jacob Vincent

3rd – Nolan Shannon over 4th Nick Ward (Nolan wins a tough decision over ward earlier this year)

126:

1st- Sturgeon, 2nd Isiah Poppe (upsets in semi)

 3rd Mateo Vargo, over 4th Darren O’Keefe

132:

 1st – Wilkins, over 2nd Jaqion Williams (Williams upsets Huns, too much “man” for Huns)

 3rd – Hunsburger over, 4th Dylan O’Keefe

138:

1st – Adonis over 2nd - Preston (like last year Preston will be in maybe the best match of the tournament but doesn’t go his way this time)

This one is going to be interesting, there is about 5 guys who all could take 3rd. Austin Collins only 2 loses with one to Preston, Zach Preciado only has 3 losses with one being a 1 point match to Preston, Rhue is going to compete, Garay & Murray both have looked solid and have something to prove.

3rd – Rhue over 4th Preciado

145:

1st- Sam Emery over 2nd Chandler Amaker (Probably going to be one of the best matchups, and guess what?!?! We get to see it twice with lower states)

3rd Johnny Gaurdian (can you say dark horse? Not ranked but beat O’connor is summer play) over Martinez-Sal

 

 

152: Another interesting weight, no offense to the defending champ Ramirez, but can you say the luckiest guy ever from last year’s finals, there isn’t a clear favorite here in my opinion. Ramirez could definitely win upright this year though.

1st – Rodgers over 2nd Ramirez (this will be a very close match)

3rd –Daniel Kitts over 4th Jayson Jacoby (you could swap both out for others, this is a very competitive con bracket all the way through)

160: Top two should secure first final appearances for both.

1st – Josh Cizamadia over 2nd – Josh Green (Should be a good one, they have similar wrestling styles)

3rd – Sam Rundell over Crossway

170: Clear top two here, after that it’s a free for all folks.

1st – Chris Handle over Eyan McKnight (expect fireworks)

3rd – Nick Fazzone over 4th Wil Fazier

180: This weigh class has cleared out with some top dogs dropping or bumping up

1st- Walker Stephenson over 2nd – Shawn Hail (some think this will be close I honestly don’t. Stephenson will beat Hail by at least 6, Hail lost to Chris Handle in summer, and Stephenson majored Handle in the state final last year)

3rd – Marlon Morales over 4th Moore

195: Hill wins this one with relative ease

1st – Josh Hill over 2nd Bret Carder

3rd – Kilgore over 4th Payton Fisher

220: This one is a no brainer also like 113 Fernicola walks to another title.  the top 3 I have separation from others.

1st Jake Fernicola over 2nd – Scotty Dean

3rd – Dixon over 4th – Jackson

285: Pretty loaded up, should be a great bracket all the way through!

1st – Wander over 2nd Anderson

3rd – Obeso over 4th Petrick

5A - agree with most except Chandler Amaker wins 145, Ramirez wins 152, and I think 182 I am 50/50 stephenson/haile - after watching stephenson vs Riley at counties Haile has a great shot to win it. 

4A

106- Ty Tice - He would win across all Divisions

113-James Levy

120-Jackson Rumfelt 

126-Kaleem Heard - This kid would win 120-132 no problem in all divisions

132-Logan Berger wins over Foster but Foster has a chance

138-Tucker Allen

145-Ben Maholtz

152- Riley Augustine - No competition for him in SC

160- Ryan Augustine

170- Kaleb Horn 

182- Z. Riley

195-Isaac Ekanem

220-J'Shon Horn

HWT - Immanuel Bush - This kid is an ox 

3A - 

106-Endres

113-Peace

120-Dylan Layton - Asa will give him a good match

126-Brennen Crout

132-AJ Dickerson

138- Mathew Williams

145-Grant Witherspoon

152-Ryan Dobbs

160-Markeith Drakeford

170-Xavier Dreese

182-Jamie Ellis

195- 

220-Eli Hall

HWT-Connor Graham

I wouldn't say Heard wins in all divisions. He and Poppe was a 2 point match and he got out on his back in the match, but he was too strong on his feet. And Poppe is by no means favored winning 5A. Just the difference between 4A and 5A. Don't get me wrong the kid is a stud, but he probably wouldn't have a state title already if he was in 5A. Because I don't see him beating Compton at 113 last year.

Heard lost to Wilkins earlier so I wouldn’t say he’d win 132 easily.  Hunsberger would have something to say about that to.  Sturgeon at 126  and the Hillcrest kid would be tough.  He’s won over Layton from IL twice this year in 1pt matches.   I think the opinion  that he wins 120-132 EASILY in all classifications is a little far fetched

I agree with you. I would say he wins 4A and below easily, but when you involve 5A then that changes things. Wilkins, Hunsburger, Sturgeon, Vargo, and Poppe could all beat him.

I think Haile will beat Stevenson. After reading someone said that the Tr kid took Stevenson to overtime at the Greenville county tournament.Stevenson didn't get a takedown. Either the Tr kid is really good or Stevenson was having a bad day.Haile should have confidence to beat Stevenson

There are 2 heard brothers.... he isn’t wrestling anymore this year but he is the one who beat poppe by 2. The other  brother is the one who beat Dylan from Indian land this year and who is ranked at 126 right now

Guest Bracket Check

Since the brackets are unofficially officially out, here are some 5A thoughts. 

106-  Interested to see this weight shake out across the board. Seeing if the young buck Bailey has anything for the Junior 106 in R1 or if Singletary can push him in the semis. D'antico-Butler a good semi. 

113- Probably headed for a Compton-Robinson final unless there is a big upset. Anyone's guess who ends up in the 3rd place match. 

120- Similar to 106, it should be pretty tightly contested, especially on the backside. Interesting R1 with Holcombe-Elrod. Looking to see if some young bucks can make a little run out of Charles and Killiri. 

126- A weight that got very deep all the sudden with German dropping, Poppe beating Vargo, and O'Keefe closing the gap on Sturgeon in a matter of weeks. Should be some good battles throughout.

132- Unless there is a real shocker, we will all be treated to Hunsberger-Wilkins 2 on Saturday night. Can we start the finals at 138 so this is the last match of the evening?

138- Rhue/Heiselman R1 is gonna be a fun one. Semis onward will be highly competitive between the 4 highest seeds. 

145- Wouldn't be shocked to see Lower State win all 4 R1 matches here. Unless there is a big surprise Amaker and Emery will lock up again in what should be a fun one. 

152- Inverse of 145 where we could see an all Upper State semi-finals. Barron could be a bracket buster though. Was up 8-0 in the semis against eventual Lower State champ Jacoby and was defensive pinned. 

160- Some good semis here with a possible Rundell/Green matchup being a highlight. 

170- Another good batch of semis that both feel like toss-ups. Fazzone-McKnight went into OT last weekend so a finals rematch there could be very fun. 

182- Same as 132 and 113 where we have two clear cut favorites. Maybe we start the finals at 195?

195- Looks to be a very young Lower State group so look for an all Upper State semi. Hill seems to be the guy but anything can happen. 

220- Davidson commit Fernicola should cruise to a 2nd title. Lower State champ from Stall, Lovelass, could look to ruin the party. 

HWT- Just about anyone's guess what the medal stand looks like here on Saturday night. Petrick looks to be peaking at the right time with a pretty dominant lower state. Obeso wrestles hard but might be undersized. Slam champ McCrae could provide some early excitement. Anderson a tough out as well. Flip a coin and place your bets on this one. 

Bonus: Hillcrest and Byrnes fight it out at the top of the team scoring. 

Double Bonus: OW goes to the winner of the 132 final.

Guest Just mindin' my own

106: Tice (Eastside, and for the next 3 years). Will pin through, unless the bus breaks down to weigh ins. 

113: Schrader  (Eastside), This kid is gonna bring the heat.

120: Rumfelt (York), Cox from SP is the only kid that can give this guy issues. 

126: Heard (York), This kid is a HAMMER. Would be the biggest upset of the tournament if ANYONE beats him. 

132: Foster (Travelers Rest, has beaten several state placers from several different states in the past few months. He did lose to Price, but then smoked Brennan. Has wrestled an insanely competitive schedule)

138: Allen (Eastside), unless Belk from SP does something funky and catches him

145: Maholtz (Eastside), unless he trips and falls, and lands on his back 

152: Augustine (Eastside), unless... well... the tournament is completely canceled. 

160: Augustine (Eastside), too much heart here. 

170: Horn (Blue Ridge) He's the most skilled wrestler in an otherwise boring weight class. There are 2-3 here, though that could upset with the right circumstances. 

182: Riley (Travelers Rest), Has only few losses to fellow hammers, including an triple overtime loss to Walker Stephenson. Has pretty much dismantled all of his opponents. No one in his class should be able to beat him. 

195: Ekanem (South Pointe), Who may get issues with Scott from Eastside at the big dance. Eastside can't be counted out at ANY weight class when it comes to state. 

220: Hughes (Travelers Rest), Dismantled every opponent at Upperstate, and has wrestled an extremely tough schedule.

285: ???? Throw a dart at these three names: Chase Barnes (Eastside), Gary Holmes (Travelers Rest), Emmauel Bush (Lancaster). Barnes and Barnes are both returning state champs that can turn it on MOST of the time, but Bush is a BIG Issue for both.

NOW... You may have noticed I didn't include any Lower State 4-A Wrestlers... That's reflective of last year's State Tournament, where Wyatt O'Quinn was the ONLY Lower State champ. The Upperstate Swept the rest of the field. Maybe I'll be proved wrong. Maybe not. We'll find out this weekend!
