2024 Way Too Early State Duals Predictions

By Georgia Grappler, 05/26/23, 3:30AM AKDT


Predictions on Teams and Placement for the State Duals

Grappler Fall Classic - The Elite National Pre-Season Tournament

State Duals

The GHSA has decided to get in the time machine and travel backwards 3 years for the State Duals format.  We are going back to 16 team brackets at the State Duals with the top 2 teams from each Region/Area advancing to the State Tournament.  Unfortunately with the return of this format, we are not returning to the same venue, as we will continue to hold the State Tournament at individual High Schools. 

With so much consternation and anger coming from fans with the release of the Team Rankings earlier this week, I decided to go ahead and release some actual predictions instead of rankings based on returning starters.
