|UPDATED: Brackets released and 43 at-large berths announced for NCAA Div. I Championships|
INDIANAPOLIS--- The NCAA announced the 43 at-large selections for the 2012 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships.
The wrestlers listed in alphabetical order by weight class join the 287 student-athletes that qualified automatically through the conference and regional qualifying tournaments over the past two weekends. The at-large selections were made by the NCAA Division I Wrestling Committee using the following selection criteria without priority order: head-to-head competition, qualifying event placement, quality wins, results against common opponents, winning percentage, rating percentage index, coaches ranking and number of matches contested at that weight class.
On March 8, the NCAA announced that one of the seeds at 174 pounds has withdrawn, which caused an entire redraw of the bracket. The updated set of brackets are now linked here.
