    Seven Teams with Positional Battles to Watch Heading into February

    As we head into February, most teams are wrapping up conference competition and looking ahead to the postseason. A few select teams have that old “good problem” to have with multiple talented wrestlers at the same weight. For whatever reason, neither has jumped out in front of the other and grabbed a hold of the starting position. 

    Below we’ve identified seven prominent teams with uncertain situations headed into February. Each situation is a little bit different. We’ll discuss the parties involved in each battle and when you can expect to get some more clarity regarding each decision.  

    Penn State (149 lbs)

    Tyler Kasak/David Evans

    As of Sunday, this battle may be settled. Maybe. True freshman Tyler Kasak and program mainstay David Evans met at the Mat-Town Open and Kasak prevailed, 4-2. It was his second tight win over Evans this season. Just last year, with Levi Haines, we saw Cael Sanderson and the Penn State staff drag that decision down to the very last minute and we’re getting to that point with Kasak, who could still redshirt.
