#1 Logan Massa, St Johns (12)
Logan dropped a tough one in the Junior FS National finals, but that has little impact on his status as it relates to the Prep 10. With last year’s seniors graduated and removed Logan is the undisputed top pound-for-pound high school wrestler in the state of Michigan and the top 160lbr in the country, not to mention the #2 overall prospect in the class of 2015.
#2 Angus Arthur, St Johns (12)
Angus hasn’t competed this offseason, but his pedigree warrants the #2 spot. A 2013 Cadet World Team member and 2X D2 state champ, Angus is ranked #2 in country at 182lbs and is the #16 overall prospect in the class of 2015.
#3 Myles Amine, Detroit CC (12)
Myles has raised his stock immensely with a spectacular offseason, and what I find most impressive is that he has done so despite moving up a couple of weight classes. He has achieved All-American status at FloNationals and Junior FS Nationals along with strong showings at the NHSCA VA Beach National Duals and Junior FS/GR National Duals, earning him a #9 national ranking at 152lbs and #48 overall ranking in the class of 2015. However, Olson and Limmex are millimeters behind and will be vying to take over the #3 spot at the GFC and Super 32 this fall.
#4 Lincoln Olson, Davison (12)
Lincoln is right in the middle of a logjam, and only the slimmest of margins separate him from Amine and Limmex. He recently earned Junior FS AA honors in Fargo for the second time in his career, and is one of two wrestlers in Michigan who will be pursuing his MHSAA 4th state title this season. Currently Lincoln is ranked as the country’s #9 wrestle at 126lbs and #62 overall prospect in the class of 2015.
#5 Nate Limmex, Grand Rapids CC (12)
Nate wrestled well at the AAU Disney Duals earlier this summer, dominating some solid competition to post an undefeated record. However, I am really hoping to see him take on some top tier national opponents when the GFC and Super 32 roll around this fall. Talent wise I have no doubts Nate is good enough to be #2 on this list by the end of the season, but untimely injuries have really limited his competition over the past 12+ months and as a result I have him just barely behind Amine and Olson who are both coming off Junior FS AA finishes in Fargo. Rankings wise, he is #11 in the nation at 132lbs, and #38 in the class of 2015.
#6 Devin Skatzka, Richmond (12)
Devin is one of 4 wrestlers making their debut in this edition of the Prep 10 following the class of 2014’s graduation. He joins Olson as the second and final senior pursuing a 4th MHSAA state title this season, and has top-notch national credentials as well including a 3rd place finish at Flonationals this spring. Currently he holds a #8 national ranking at 160lbs, and is listed at the class of 2015’s #65 recruit.
#7 Devin Schroder, Grand Rapids CC (11)
The highest ranked underclassmen, this edition of the Prep 10 also marks Devin’s first career appearance. He’s been spotless throughout the offseason, winning gold at FloNationals and finishing undefeated at the AAU Disney Duals to help earn a #12 national ranking at 120lbs and #31 overall in the class of 2016.
#8 Kanen Storr, Leslie (11)
Kanen continues to be one of Michigan’s most active offseason wrestlers on the national season, most recently earning Cadet Freestyle Nationals AA honors with a 4th place finish in Fargo. Prior to that, he had turned in strong showings at both the Cadet and Junior FS/GR Duals preceded by a 3rd place finish at Cadet Folkstyle Nationals in the spring. Kanen currently holds a #20 national ranking at 120lbs, arguably the country’s deepest weight, and is a likely candidate to appear in the updated class of 2016 rankings later this month.
#9 Lucas Hall, Lowell (11)
It’s been a breakout offseason for Lucas who has gained national prominence with a number of big wins along the NUWAY circuit this summer following a 3rd place finish at FloNationals in the spring. Another first-timer in the Prep 10, Lucas holds a #9 national ranking at 113lbs and #41 in the class of 2016.
#10 Ian Parker, St Johns (11)
The fourth and final wrestler making their Prep 10 debut, Ian continues to be one of Michigan’s most consistent offseason performers on the Freestyle scene. Now a 2X Cadet National FS AA and 2X FILA Cadet FS AA, Ian checks into both sets of national rankings with a #10 mark at 113lbs and #46 in the class of 2016.
