    Your States top 3, college career only, 2000 to present

    CA 1. Stephen Abas Career Record: 144-4 NCAA Placement: 4-1-1-1 Abas is probably the second best wrestler from 2000-2010, only behind Cael. If he didn't wrestle during the same period, he may have a Hodge or two to his name. 2. Isaiah Martinez Record: 116-3 NCAA Placement: 1-1-2-2 It might be a bit of recency bias to put him over Pendleton and Varner, but Martinez has the least losses of the three--by quite a bit. 3. Jake Varner Record: 121-10 NCAA Placement: 2-2-1-1 I think Varner's overall body of work is better than Pendleton's. Snub: 2x Champ Chris Pendleton. I think Zahid Valencia will have a good case to be #1 on this list if he goes undefeated next season and caps it off with title.

    Facts about junior world medalists in college

    Is Steveson the first Junior World Champ to not make the NCAA finals in their first attempt? Off the top of my head: Snyder - 2nd as a true frosh Hall - Champ as a true frosh Lee - Champ as a true frosh Fix - in the finals, TBD Lewis - in the finals, TBD Steveson - 3rd Edit: NVM, I see Bradley did not ever make the finals at any point in his college career.

    Top Wrestlers From Each Graduating Class

    I'll do it by the year they graduated high school, as this may slightly narrow any age gaps due to red/gray shirts. IMO, it's also funner to rank wrestlers who were recruited within the same class. In addition, I'll also arbitrarily start at 2009 since that's around when I started following the sport. 2009 Dake (1, 1, 1, 1) Ruth (3, 1, 1, 1) Taylor (2, 1, 2, 1) HM: Nelson (7, 1, 1, 2), Perry (DNP, 3, 1, 1), Ramos (DNP, 3, 2, 1) 2010 Stieber (1, 1, 1, 1) McMullan (3, 2, 3, 3) Delgado (7, 1, 1, DNP) HM: Houdashelt (DNP, 6, 5, 1), Ness (2, 4, 2, 6), Port (DNP, 2, 3, 2) 2011 Dieringer (3, 1, 1, 1) Gwiazdowski (8, 1, 1, 2) Megaludis (2, 2, 3, 1) HM: Garrett (3, 2, 5, 1), Brewer (7, 8, 1, 3), Green (7, 7, 3, 3) 2012 Dean (3, 1, 1, 2) Clark (5, 2, 2, 1) Gilman (DNC, 4, 2, 3) HM: Tsirtsis (1, 3, DNP, 7), Jordan (7, 7, 2, 4), Dudley (DNP, 8, 2, 3) 2013 Retherford (5, 1, 1, 1) Cox (1, 5, 1, 1) Martinez (1, 1, 2, 2) HM: Heil (4, 1, 1, DNP), Tomasello (1, 3, 3, 3), Jordan (3, 3, 2, 5) 2014 Snyder (2, 1, 1, 1) Nickal (2, 1, 1, TBD) Nolf (2, 1, 1, TBD) HM: Gross (DNP, 2, 1, TBD), Micic, (4, 2, TBD, TBD), McKenna (3, DNP, 3, TBD) 2015 Joseph (1, 1, TBD, TBD) Valencia (3, 1, TBD, TBD) Martin (1, 5, 2, TBD) All in all, 2009 and 2013 are incredible when you look at the resumes of their HMs and consider I left off guys like St. John and Coon. The top 3 of those two years are also filled with some of the best we've ever seen in recent memory. 2014 is right there with those two years in terms of top-end talent as the trio of Snyder, Nickal, and Nolf will likely total 12 final appearances and 9 titles in just a few weeks. I believe you would be hard-pressed to find a trio as good as 2009, 2013, and 2014 in any given high school recruiting class. I think it may a bit too early to look at any class beyond 2015, but if I had to project/pick... 2016: Hall, Wick, Marinelli, Rivera, Hidlay, Suriano 2017: Yianni, S. Lee, Fix, N. Lee, O'Connor, Arujau 2018: Steveson, Carr, Beard, Sasso
