    2023-24 Purdue Preview

    Purdue - The Boilermakers were an insanely young team last season. Youth is a reason, not an excuse, and I’m a firm believer that there is a big difference between reasons and excuses. The expectations for this team are higher, as they should be. The team from last year is battle-tested and ready, and the expectations from fans and coaches are greater. One interesting thing about this team, is it might somehow be younger cumulatively than they were last season, but with greater expectations. The freshmen from last season now know what the grind is like, but they are still only in their second season in the lineup. As you’ll see, you might even get some true freshman and redshirt freshmen competing in the lineup this season as well. Regardless of eligibility status, these Purdue wrestlers are expected to produce at a greater level than they did last season. They have a strong leadership group of coaches and athletes and will grow into a real force by March. This is a team that has a strong and lasting foundation for continued success.


    The Boilermakers have some solid bookends at 125 and Heavyweight. Matt Ramos starts it off for Purdue. Coming off of an NCAA finals appearance and being the highest returning All-American, he begins the season ranked #1 at 125.
