Five Fresno State wrestlers have been named to the top 25 preseason individual rankings released by Flowrestling on Tuesday, according to a Fresno State Athletics news release.
Josh Hokit, AJ Nevills, Khristian Olivas, Jackson Hemauer and Gary Joint were also ranked in WIN Magazine’s preseason rankings released on Sept. 11. Some of the rankings vary between Flowrestling and WIN Magazine.
Fresno State has brought back all five NCAA Championship-qualifying wrestlers from a year ago, including Hokit, who comes in at fifth in the rankings at 197 pounds after placing fifth at the 2019 NCAA Championship.
Hokit is coming off an All-American finish in the NCAA Championship, which hasn’t been accomplished by a Fresno State wrestler since Mario Botelho received All-American honors back in 2003.
