Buffalo heavyweight Jake Gunning, seeded No. 23, is a late scratch to the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. He will be replaced by Purdue's Jacob Aven, the first alternate at heavyweight. Aven becomes the No. 33 seed. Wrestlers previously seeded 24-33 move up one seed line.

Aven enters the NCAAs with a record of 11-21. He placed eighth at the Big Ten Championships, which was one spot away from earning an automatic berth. He notched a win over Iowa's Sam Stoll at the Big Tens.
