    2024 NCAA DI National Championships Preview (125 lbs)

    The 2024 NCAA DI Wrestling Championships are less than a week away! In a few short days, 330 wrestlers will make the trek to Kansas City, with hopes of a national title on their minds. Now it's in a city that hasn't hosted nationals since 2003 , but by all accounts, should be a great host. 

    Before the action on the mat starts, InterMat will go through each individual bracket and highlight the favorites, top matches to watch, and much more.

    The Top Seed: Braeden Davis (Penn State)

    There’s been plenty of turnover from last year to this one at 125 lbs. Nothing represents that more than the top seed coming from Penn State and in the form of true freshman Braeden Davis. While the Nittany Lions have had stars up-and-down their lineup for most of the last decade-plus; they’ve had difficulty finding a permanent solution after the graduation of Nico Megaludis in 2016.  

    In steps the true freshman from Michigan - one who seems to relish in the attention given to him while wrestling for Penn State and competing in high-stress situations. Davis comes to Kansas City as a Big Ten champion in a weight class that was loaded with experienced competitors. He earned wins over three All-Americans, Eric Barnett, Michael DeAugustino, and Patrick McKee.
