Senior Jackson Hein, a 2013 national qualifier, received one of the final four bids for the 184 lb. weight class.  Hein qualified last year after a seventh-place finish in the Big Ten Championships.  He then went on to go 1-2 at the NCAA Championships.

Redshirt freshman Ryan Taylor (17-4) earned a No. 7 seed at 125 lbs. and will face Eastern Michigan’s Jered Germaine in next Thursday’s first round action.

Senior Tyler Graff (27-4) was seeded No. 5 at 133 lbs. and will wrestle Northwestern’s Dominick Malone (16-15) in the first round.  Graff recorded a 24-9 technical fall against Malone on Jan. 26.

Also in the field, Rylan Luceck (149 lbs.), Isaac Jordan (157 lbs.), Scott Liegel (174 lbs.), Timmy McCall (197 lbs.) and Connor Medbery (24-7).

Action begins Thursday, March 20 and runs through Saturday, March 22nd.
