Wrestling: Updated Husker Roster Observations

Nebraska recently updated its online roster for the 2021-22 season, and there were some interesting observations to be made.

The Huskers have 37 total wrestlers listed and have an absurd number of freshmen due to the NCAA’s eligibility waver. That means that both the 2020 and 2021 classes will technically be true freshmen, giving Nebraska 19 total freshmen (16 true freshmen). And add in the fact that Nebraska brought back five senior starters for another season, and this enormous freshman class will be extremely redshirt-heavy. I wouldn’t be surprised to see 13 or more of these guys redshirt.
