INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA has announced the first coaches’ ranking for the 2023 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships.
The coaches’ rankings are determined by a vote of 14 coaches in each weight class with two head coaches from each of the seven conferences. For ranking purposes, coaches may only consider a wrestler that has been designated as a starter at a respective weight class. Wrestlers must have eight Division I matches in the weight class to be considered with at least one within the last 30 days.
Of the 10 weight classes, six are led by members of the Big Ten Conference and no school has two individuals in the top spot.
A pair of national champions sit atop the 165-pound and 174-pound weight classes with Missouri’s Keegan O’Toole and Penn State’s Carter Starocci.
