Jered Sublet, who has now competed at the spot for the Beavers in each of the last two seasons, will be available to the team starting in the second semester. In the second semester of last season, Sublet went 6-6 with a 1-4 dual record and finished 0-2 at the Super Region tournament. Until Sublet is ready, Keith Freeman will be the guy for the Beavers. Freeman hails from Ogden, UT. Sophomore Marco Ramirezlazos Freshman Nahele Tonge will likely redshirt at 14. Ramirezlazos was 8-18 between 133 and 141 last season.

As a freshman in 2015-16, Tanner Crissler had a breakout season with a 17-14 record. Crissler then missed the entire next season recovering from an ACL injury and finished 6-14 in his return last winter. The Turtle Mountain Community, ND, graduate had some nice moments last year including an overtime loss to MSU-Moorhead’s Joe Schumacher in dual competition and a 9-7 defeat at the hands of Upper Iowa All American Damian Penichet. Though both of those matches ended with the other wrestler getting his hand raised, they show that at his best Crissler is capable of competing with everyone in the NSIC and solidifying the 149 pound weight class for the Beavers. For the Beavers to have a successful dual season, they will need Crissler’s veteran presence in the lineup and getting wins.
Behind Crissler is sophomore Max Miller, and three true freshman including Rugby, ND native Joey Berg. Miller was 1-3 in competition last season.
