The 2017-2018 year looks to have a ton of transfers that will have a significant impact both on the team they left and the team they came to. An odd statistic to look into, there are eighteen (maybe more) wrestlers that could have a stellar season this year competing at a school they did not start out at.
Might as well start out with Suriano.
Penn State to Rutgers
If this were a game of pirates, Rutgers found the gold in this pick up. Fans are super excited, as they should be. While three time All American Anthony Ashnault hopes to become the Scarlet Knights first NCAA Division I Champion, he may have to hope that the 141 lbs weight class is wrestled before the 125. Owning a 8-6 victory last season over NCAA runner-up Ethan Lizak of Minnesota, Suriano looks to contend.
Cornell to North Carolina
Oklahoma to Arizona State
Iowa State to Campbell
Central Michigan to Penn State
Northwestern to Michigan
Old Dominion to Fresno State
Boise State to Clackamas Community College to Fresno State
Boise State to Oklahoma State
Stanford to Ohio State
Edinboro to Iowa
Northern Illinois to Minnesota
Northwestern to Arizona State
Oklahoma State to Lock Haven
Old Dominion to Michigan
Iowa State to Iowa
Other transfers to look out for:
Mike Longo of Oklahoma who wrestled for the Sooners last season and started his career off at Appalachian State.
Te'Shan Campbell last year's ACC champion at 165 lbs for Pittsburgh, who will compete this season for Ohio State.
Fredy Stroker who began his career at Minnesota, who is now at Cornell.
