BLOG: Wrestling state tournament picks

My team and weight-by-weight predictions for this weekend's state tournaments.

Here are my team and individual picks for all the wrestling state tournaments:

Class 6A

- Team pick: Edmond North. Could be way off on this one, but this Edmond North team seems like a team of destiny. If the Huskies win, Broken Arrow won't be far behind.

Finals predictions

Class 6A

106: Kennedy Monday (Stillwater) over Jordan Prince (Edmond North).

113: Kaid Brock (Stillwater) over Cy Trindle (Edmond North).

120: Markus Simmons (Broken Arrow) over Boo Lewallen (Yukon).

126: Hayden Hansen (Norman North) over Luke Wolfenberger (Union).

132: Joe Smith (Stillwater) over Keegan Moore (Putnam City).

138: Dawaylon Barnes (Muskogee) over Parker Bohannon (Yukon).

145: Tanner Bailey (Broken Arrow) over Blake Bassham (Norman North).

152: Michael Hamilton (Bartlesville) over Jacobe Smith (Muskogee).

160: JT Andrews (Muskogee) over Mason Thompson (Bixby).

170: Nathan Marek (Southmoore) over Derek White (Edmond North).

182: Lance Dixon (Edmond North) over Derek Silvertsen (Moore).

195: Joel Dixon (Edmond North) over Peyton Ayers (Sand Spring).

220: Andrew Dixon (Edmond North) over Jakoda Bridges (Ponca City).

Hwt: Carlos Freeman (Midwest City) over Carlos Taylor (Broken Arrow).

Class 5A

- Team pick: Collinsville. No one has come close to catching the Cardinals this season, and the state tournament won't be any different. Wouldn't be a stretch to say that Collinsville would win in any class in this state — and other states.

106: Christian Moody (Collinsville) over Briar Adams (Lawton MacArthur).

113: Devion Jeffries (Collinsville) over Markwae Sanders (Duncan).

120: Donald Cannon (McAlester) over Cesar Romero (Southeast).

126: Mark Carter (East Central) over Timothy O'Connor (Guthrie).

132: Adrian Gaines (MacArthur) over Will Steltzen (Collinsville).

138: Gary Wayne Harding (Collinsville) over Brok Williams (MacArthur).

145: Dylan Helm (Collinsville) over Hestin Lamons (Tahlequah).

152: Cameron Loving (Altus) over Blane Culp (Piedmont).

160: Keilan Torres (Altus) over Brycen Short (Claremore).

170: Cole Pacheco (Deer Creek) over Zach Abkemeier (Collinsville).

182: Brice Inbody (Bishop Kelley) over Harley Stanley (Western Heights).

195: Sean Carson (Altus) over Keenan Priddy (Collinsville).

220: Connor Howard (Guthrie) over Garrett Shaw (MacArthur).

Hwt: Jacoby Brown (Chickasha) over Deshawn Craft (Del City).
