    The abridged 2020-21 season was one that took place amongst many Covid-relations regulations and concerns. As a result, the NCAA granted an extra year of eligibility to all active student-athletes during that season. What happened was that coaches used freshmen as needed, rather than in the past where they were either competing or redshirting.

    Last year we saw a sense of normalcy return to wrestling and many wrestlers from the Class of 2021 were redshirted and had varying degrees of success. Here are the freshmen who redshirted during the 2021-22 season and look to be in the mix for a starting role this year. Each redshirt freshman is listed with their 21-22 record, notable wins they may have racked up, and their ranking coming out of high school.
