I don't think 4 is realistic. I will be happy with 2.

If everyone is healthy I think Bolen and DMF are locks.

If Myers can manage his weight cut, I think he has a greater than 70% chance at AA. Though for me I want to see what he looks like at the weight and how things go before I think we can say he is going to do it.

I like Brent Moore the most for the next possible AA. He has more time and experience on the mat than the rest for the most part. Not too mention he has shown that he can bet AA talent in the past (Jack). 149 is also pretty open this year as well, so I think this may be our best shot for a 3rd.

I think Mitch has a ways to go before he is in the conversation. I am particularly interested to see if Brewer can get Mitch working the leg attacks, as he needs this a part of his game in order to AA. Leg attacks against quality competition were non-existent last year for him. With that said he has all of the talent, I just think he needs to develop a bit more and might be a year away. I really hope he makes me eat those words.

Borst also has been really turning it on lately. I am really looking forward to see what he can do this year and he is the one sleeper that I think has a shot to AA if he continues to develop as I am hearing. I hope he is going to finally have the weight to be the beast of a wrestler this year.

At the end of the day though I think we need to temper our expectations a bit. We have a lot of young talent, and not a lot of upperclassmen. This will be reflected at Nationals. I would love to be surprised and secretly hope that one of the T-Fr. studs that we have just lights the room up this Fall and we put him on the mat, but I am not sure. Either way I will be screaming my head off for the Hokies.
