It's only been two weeks since our last transfer tracker update, but some big names have been on the move. Most notable is three-time NCAA qualifier Matt Finesilver, who moved from Duke to Michigan. Finesilver was an ACC runner-up in 2019 and twice been seeded in the top-13 at the NCAA Championships. With the departure of Logan Massa, the Wolverines had a possible hole at the 174 lb weight class, so his addition is very welcome.
Another multiple-time time NCAA qualifier on the move is Tate Samuelson, who has transferred from Wyoming to Lehigh. Samuelson has gone 1-2 three times at the NCAA Championships. He was a Big 12 runner-up in 2021 and later earned the tenth seed in St. Louis. He'll solidify a strong set of upperweights for the Mountain Hawks.
The other wrestler in this group with prior NCAA experience is Logan Ashton, who moves closer to home after qualifying for nationals at Stanford last year. Ashton will wrestle for a resurgent Chattanooga team that has received a trio of strong transfers (Rocky Jordan and Jake Boyd).
Other new additions include a pair heading to Binghamton (Conner Decker and Tyler Kellison) and Cleveland State (Anthony Perrine and Caleb Rea). Nolan Miller-Johnston, Clayton Fielden, and Zack Zeamer are the other new names on this list.
