    On Thursday, InterMat released our first DI collegiate rankings of the 2022-23 season, our summer version. It goes without saying, but there will likely be plenty of changes between those rankings and our set for the preseason. But this set will give us a good snapshot of what each weight generally looks like. With that in mind, we've generated some numbers from these summer rankings.

    Have fun!
