It’s the highest number of NCAA qualifiers the Badgers have had since 2007. It also marks the 10th time in the last 12 seasons that the Badgers have qualified five-or-more wrestlers.
Senior TJ Ruschel (157), junior Andrew Crone (149) and junior Johnny Jimenez (125) each received at-large bids from the NCAA. The committee made a total of 53 selections to complete the list of 330 qualifiers.
The trio joins the six Badgers who already automatically qualified for the tournament at the Big Ten Championships.
