SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Hawkeyes remain the top-ranked college wrestling team, according to Flowrestling. That, of course, isn’t new news.

What is new, though, is the latest shift in some of the individual rankings — specifically at 149 pounds, where Brandon Sorensen jumped to the top after his 3-2 overtime win over Northwestern’s Jason Tsirtsis last week.

Behind Sorensen and Tsirtsis in the rankings is Edinboro’s David Habat, Oklahoma State’s Josh Kindig and Missouri’s Drake Houdashelt. Minnesota’s Jake Short, Sorensen’s likely opponent when the Hawkeyes wrestle the Gophers this coming Friday, isn’t currently ranked.

Individually, all 10 of Iowa’s starters are ranked at their respective weight classes. Of those 10, seven are ranked among the top-eight.

125 pounds — Thomas Gilman, 5th (last week, 5th)
133 pounds — Cory Clark, 4th (4th)
141 pounds — Josh Dziewa, 6th (5th)
149 pounds — Brandon Sorensen, 1st (5th)
157 pounds — Michael Kelly, 12th (12th)
165 pounds — Nick Moore, 9th (9th)
174 pounds — Mike Evans, 2nd (2nd)
184 pounds — Sammy Brooks, 10th (11th)
197 pounds — Nathan Burak, 4th (4th)
Heavyweight — Bobby Telford, 1st (1st)

Additionally, Evans joined Telford in Flowrestling’s Pound-4-Pound Rankings. Evans ranks 19th, while Telford climbed one spot from last week to No. 9.

Behind Iowa in the team rankings are Minnesota at No. 2, Ohio State in third, followed by Missouri, Illinois, Cornell, and Penn State.
