2015 NWCA National Duals Set

7

Another year, another new format. For 2015, the NWCA National Duals will again feature 16 teams - but those 16 teams will each wrestle one dual on February 15th, with the 8 winners heading to Carver Hawkeye Arena on Feb 22nd (a Sunday, away from the Iowa state high school tournament). That's 3 duals in one day, if you make the finals. It should be great for the fans - an entire day of awesome wrestling, and hopefully BTN carries coverage again this year. But I'm not as certain it's in the best interests of the wrestlers. Plus, conference championships would be right around the corner.

The Athlon Sports All Freshman Team 2014

+

Andrew Nelson makes an appearance on the 2014 Athlon Sports All Freshman Team, as one of the 3rd team offensive linemen. Nelson has received great reviews out of camp, so he should be able to follow through on this accolade. Some may argue that other Nittany Lions could have made an appearance on these teams as well, but it's just a preseason list. Players like Saeed Blacknall, Chris Godwin, De'Andre Thompkins, Troy Reeder, Jason Cabinda, and Grant Haley all have the potential to show up on lists like these once the season concludes. There are a few other names on the list who are familiar to Nittany Lion fans. WR Ricky Seals-Jones played on Christian Hackenberg's 7 on 7 team at The Opening, prompting some to think about the possibilities of them playing together. OL Damian Prince was a Penn State target at one point. DL Derrick Nnadi was a Penn State target for quite some time before deciding to become a Seminole. And then of course, there's Jabrill Peppers. If you purchased your copy of We Are! 2014, you already know the story behind Peppers and Penn State. Let's revisit this list at the end of the season and see what changes!

A little comic relief as the last few preseason days crawl by. Boring, eh?

The folks over at Testudo say that the Terps didn't /stamps foot/ lose a basketball recruit to us. Damnit. One of our own (?) Eric Gibson gives em hell. This isn't a new post, but the comments are hysterical. If you need a time suck, have at it.

Intermat's Steve Elwood followed top recruiting target Fredy Stroker around at the recent Fargo Nationals event, and produced an outstanding read. Steve's also quite complimentary of PA wrestling, which, as we all know, is the best.
