Couple of thoughts:
– The class of 2020 is the deepest and most talented that Georgia has EVER produced. Hands down.
– I put Vince Mannella at the top of the 2020 list. Honestly, for my money, he’s the second best wrestler in the state of Ga behind Kyle G.
– Jacob Pedraza deserves to be top 5 in 2021.
– I’m extremely excited to see some the talent in the class of 2022. It’s going to be headlined by names like Caleb Henson, Matthew Singleton, and Michael Kilic. If you don’t know those names yet, you soon will.
Nonetheless, great list and discussion points.February 28, 2018 at 7:25 pm #10195AnonymousInactive
I agree with Jason and love the other guys, but I would put Vince Mannella at the top of 2020.February 28, 2018 at 11:16 pm #10198AnonymousInactive
IMO Manella’s for sure the top wrestler pound for pound in the 2020 class. All the others are really good. Just not Vince Manella good.March 1, 2018 at 2:22 am #10199AnonymousInactive

Jaxon Smith #2 at 2021 for now. I know he’s been out injured. He’s healthy and has started to train again. No one from 2- down could tie his shoes.March 1, 2018 at 1:58 pm #10203AnonymousInactive
Couple of comments:
1) I am a huge fan of Manella. I ranked him ahead of both Charlie and Drew in the P4P rankings. The reason I gave the nod to Charlie was he placed third at NHSCA Nationals. Eller is a Fargo AA and won Pre Season Nationals. Now I also believe PSN is a little watered down because most of the studs are at Super 32. I also struggle with punishing Manella for attending and showimg well at an all class hammer fest like Super 32.
2) not having Pedraza in the 2021 rankings was an oversight. He deserves to be somewhere in the top 5. Just not 1 or 2.
3) I agree about Jaxson Smith. If healthy he would be easily #2 and would put pressure on his teammate for the #1 spot but he missed the entire season so I did not include him in this ranking.
4) I also might have overlooked Vincent Baker. I’m going to edit the 2019 rankings and move him to #9.
