    2024 NCAA DI National Championships Preview (197 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: Aaron Brooks (Penn State)

    A move up to 197 lbs did nothing to slow down the dominance of three-time NCAA champion Aaron Brooks. Actually, he’s been more dominant than in past years. Amongst his 17 wins this season, Brooks has only had one match that ended in a regular decision. That came against #7 Zach Glazier in Penn State’s dual win over Iowa. Brooks reasserted himself against Glazier in the Big Ten finals and came away with a 19-3 tech in just over six minutes. 

    For the year, Brooks has nine techs and four falls, to go along with three major decisions. Previously, Brooks' best bonus point percentage came in 2022-23, when it was right at 67%. Now he’s over 94%.
