Here are Snap’s class rankings for the 2018-2019 season. These rankings are based on the wrestlers entire body of work for HS. While I believe that some of these studs mentioned are better than I ranked them, I tired to be fair and used not only how well they have done at the HS state tournaments but in National events. These are folkstyle rankings. FS/GR results were considered, just not weighted the most.
These are the tournaments that I used to help determine the rankings: Super 32, Fargo
1. Michael Killic- Woodward
2. Caleb Henson- Woodland
3. Matthew Singleton- Woodward
4. Noah Pettigrew- Valdosta?
5. Chase Horne- West Laurens
6. Porter Faulk- ?
7. David Harper-?
8. Cole Hunt- Dalton
Notes on 2022 class

I know there will push back on these rankings. I know Pettigrew won Fargo- awesome accomplishment but these are folkstyle rankings. I know Faulk and Horne won the Super 32 qualifier- They both are/will be studs. Killic is the number one guy IMO in this class. He is extremely athletic and strong. I like Henson at #2. If it weren’t for a loss last year to Killic he would be my #1 as I like his motor, mat awareness and the fact that he has been grinding the past few years with McCrary, Smith and Gollhoffer doesn’t hurt. Singleton, like Killic will get all of Mannella and Masters they can handle in the practice room. This is a pretty loaded class. Would not surprise me to see all 8 of these kids make the state finals in February with at least 6 being crowned champion!
I don’t think Cole Cochran can be overlooked (or do I hope he is?). Like his brother did before him, he will enter his freshman season at “man’s” weight class but he had a pretty good weekend in McDonough taking one of the ranked Juniors on your list to a 6-4 match in the semis. It may be that the criteria for the rankings don’t fit him well but I suspect he’ll make his way onto the list as the season progresses. He is super athletic and is only a bunch of hard work away from being special.September 4, 2018 at 8:38 pm #10742
Agreed on Cochran. He had a great match with Stonecheck. Based on criteria, I couldn’t rank him in these initial rankings but believe he is one of many studs in this incoming class.September 5, 2018 at 7:58 am #10744
Harper is at Baylor in TN but lives in GA and the same with Bond who would rank high. Faulk is at Westfield in Perry. Thanks for researching results and doing this.September 5, 2018 at 11:08 am #10745
Thank you Mr. Faulk. I will remove Harper form the rankings. I knew Bond was attending school out of state, so i didn’t rank him or Dendy.
Looking forward to watching Porter wrestle for the next 4 years!
