Nick Brascetta, Virginia Tech - R24, 8, 4, 3
A graduate from Ohio's small but insanely prolific powerhouse high school St. Paris Graham, Nick Brascetta became the 149-pound starter for the Hokies his true freshman year. He started the next season at 149 pounds as well, capturing eighth place at the NCAAs before taking a redshirt. Brascetta came back bigger and better than ever, finishing in the top four twice in the next two years at 157 pounds. He had his best season as a senior, losing in the quarterfinals of the 2016 tournament to Isaiah Martinez before peeling off four victories in a row to finish his career on the third-place step of the podium.
Also had Zach Epperly at 165 as an honorable mention.
