I think the Kyle Snyder route is something that he and his coaches/family should definitely consider. I would say this about Gable, he is an active Heavyweight, he's quick and has the offense of a lighter weight. He also has the strong hips needed for defense. I'm not sure if he's much of a thrower, but with the ability he has shown he might not need to be. As it sits right now he looks to be the complete package. Or in a Baseball analogy he would be a five tool player.
As for his projected future, like the song said, "the future is so bright he has to wear shades." Now whether or not that comes to fruition is still to be determined.
I do think that Gable's athleticism, and offense set him apart for Dom Bradley, so I am not sure that these two are completely comparable. As far as Gwiz, Nelson, Telford and the others possibly standing in his way, I think if Gable can handle their size and strength, and put points on the board against them, he very well may be the future at this weight.
As for Gable becoming the best Heavyweight of all time, that would be truly spectacular, and USA Wrestling could certainly use another star in it's line up. However, Baumgartner was around for eons, and has like 13 World and Olympic medals to his name, so I think it highly unlikely for that to be duplicated now days, especially with MMA offering a lucrative career for some, and the talent that USA Wrestling is now producing. But heck, go Gable, shoot for the stars, and hopefully he does become the best ever. Go USA Wrestling, and Congrats to Gable.
