Wood Report: Syracuse’s Justyn Knight tops NCAA XC Preseason Rankings

For more information regarding, the process of how I come to decide these ratings, please check out last week’s’s introductory post. Below you’ll see my rankings for each of the individuals competing at nationals, with the exception of one but I’ll explain shortly. These are my projected NCAA individuals and it’s not necessarily the best 248 runners in the country. Due to injuries or shortcomings at certain meets, sometimes we see cases of runners that are very good but don’t make it to the big dance. It happens.

If you have any questions or complaints, tweet them at me: @Wood_Report. Last week, I had a lot of fun taking your questions on where I projected your teams to finish at your respective conference and regionals. Let’s do it again. Ask me any NCAA Division I cross country runner and I will tell you where I have you projected to place at conference and regionals again.

First thing that I’d like to get out of the way – I mean ZERO disrespect to anyone with these projections. My idea is not to make anyone feel bad. If I put you in the 200 Club or last, it has no indication about how I view you as a human being. I just need to put someone there.

If you missed last week’s team rankings, they can be found here.

And now for the full rankings (except for BYU). If you’re viewing this on mobile, you may want to give it a try on a laptop so that you can see the teams and ratings for each runner. We’re not super tech savvy so sorry!
