    I just noticed he was not on the roster. Did I miss something?

    You're right, he's not on the SK.com roster. We have a major hole here now, unless Poznanski is considered the future at 197 (I don't think Janzer has the frame and length to compete at 197). Correnti right now is the only 197 lber on roster for 2020-21. I'm sure Goodale is aware of this. We can't go into 2020-21 for 197 with our current roster and recruits. For those familiar with Poznanski, does he project to 197 for the future, or 184, and if 197, would we expect a RS year for 2021? If he stays at 184, he will be needed depth at 184, as Janzer otherwise would be the only 184lber for next year too. Goodale needs to get more depth in the room for the 3 weights. Right now: Silvestro is the only 285 lber, Correnti is the only 197 lber, and at 184 lber, we have Janzer and a true frosh in Poznanski (and I hope he can be afforded a RS year). Recruiting in the upper weights HAS to be improved. We can't possibly have enough training partners in the room at this point.for the wrestlers on roster to develop.

    Poz, Epperly, and Colluci’s brother all come in next year. I imagine Poz goes 184, Epperly goes 197 and Colluci goes HWT.

    Not ideal to trot out 3 true freshman as your only backups but we also don’t know who is going to bump up among starters. Not really worth stressing over.

    So is true that Lightner is gone?

    Forgot about Eppeely and Colluci. Depth wrestlers potentially. So we don't forfeit. But we need a real 197 lber who can NQ at 197.

    I look at Cornell and see Darnstadt and Cardenas in their room, and I hope that He Who Must Not Be Named was right about the 197 lb transfer

    Epperly could make an interesting 285 guy..he has a big frame, so I wonder if he could fill out and end up with a body built like Cassar.

    That I have no idea. Goodale always considered him a project, he’s been banged up the last few years and I’m not sure if him not being on the Rutgers online roster is an accident. There are probably other people here that can provide more insight.

    Probably safe to assume he is no longer with the team if no longer on the team roster.

    Pretty sure he's the only poster to ever get banned from the wrestling board outside of the PSU cretins like Matter.

    Why do these departures occur silently?

    Kyle Lightner is still on the team, confirmed by sources. No real reason as to why he’s not listed online.

    Glad to hear. Hopefully just an error.
