First set of coaches' standings released

Edinboro Wrestling

INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA released the first of three coaches’ panel rankings for the 2013-14 wrestling season. The final rankings will be one of the tools used as part of the selection process to determine the qualifiers for the 2014 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. This year’s event is March 20-22 at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Okla.

Wrestlers in each weight class will be measured by winning percentage, rating percentage index (RPI) and coaches’ rankings to earn spots in their qualifying tournaments for the 2014 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 in the weight class and have wrestled within the last 30 days.

The top-ranked wrestlers at each weight class in the inaugural rankings are: Nahshon Garrett, Cornell (125 pounds); Joe Colon, UNI (133 pounds); Mitchell Port, Edinboro (141 pounds); Drake Houdashelt, Missouri (149 pounds); James Green, Nebraska (157 pounds); David Taylor, Penn State (165 pounds); Andrew Howe, Oklahoma (174 pounds); Jimmy Sheptock, Maryland (184 pounds); Scott Schiller, Minnesota (197 pounds) and Adam Coon, Michigan (Heavyweight).
