INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA released the first of three coaches’ panel rankings for the 2012-13 wrestling season on Thursday. The final rankings will be one of the tools used as part of the selection process to determine the qualifiers for the 2013 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships.

Wrestlers in each weight class will be measured by winning percentage, rating percentage index (RPI) and coaches’ rankings to earn spots for the 2013 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. The coaches’ rankings are compiled by a vote of coaches representing each qualifying tournament. For ranking purposes, coaches may only consider a wrestler that has been designated as a starter at a respective weight class. In order to be eligible for the rankings, wrestlers must have participated in at least five matches against Division I opponents and have wrestled within the last 30 days.

The top-ranked wrestlers at each weight class in the inaugural rankings are: Matt McDonough, Iowa (125 pounds); Tony Ramos, Iowa (133 pounds); Kendric Maple, Oklahoma (141 pounds); Jordan Oliver, Oklahoma State (149 pounds); Derek St. John, Iowa (157 pounds); Kyle Dake, Cornell (165 pounds); Chris Perry, Oklahoma State (174 pounds); Edward Ruth, Penn State (184 pounds); Dustin Kilgore, Kent State (197 pounds) and Dominque Bradley, Missouri (Heavyweight).
