We all know that Minnesota has had a problem. The two best heavyweight prospects in the country have both committed to the Gophers. Both are world champs. Both reside from Minnesota. Both are very freaking good. So how can Minnesota optimize both without jeopardizing losing one to a rival. I have solved that riddle below. 

 

2018-2019 

 

Steveson (FR in College) - He will start right away and be the favorite in my opinion to the title. 

Kerkvliet (JR) in High School) 

 

2019-2020

Steveson (SO) - He will start again and win another title

Kerkvliet (SR in HS)

 

2020-2021

Steveson (JR) - Will win his 3rd title. 

Kerkvliet (?) - Will defer a year and be at the OTC and focus on winning a junior world title. 

 

2021-2022

Steveson (SR) - Redshirts

Kerkvliet (FR) -Wins as a true freshman

 

2022-2023

Stevenson (RSSR) - Wins his 4th title. 

Kerkvliet (SO) - Redshirts

 

2023-2024 

Kerkvliet (Takes an olympic redshirt)

 

2024-2025

Kerkvliet (RSSO) Wins 2nd title

 

2025-2026

Kerkvliet (RSJR) Wins 3rd title

 

2026-2027

Kerkvliet (RSSR) Wins 4th title

 

That is 10 years of HWT dominance unseen by any program. Also, by that time, Gable's little brother will be on the team. He is even better than Gable.

Why would Steveson not take an ORS in 2019-20?

I wish OU had a heavyweight problem like Minnesota. They have a rich tradition of producing great heavies.

I'd recommend he beat Gwiz before doing that.

It took some brainstorming but I am thinking on the longevity of the dominance and stretch it out as far they can.

Can't wait for little Ness and Steveson to join the team in a few short years.

If Minnesota can make it work between the two of them, wow, what a problem to have. But my feeling is, good for Minnesota, if they are the perennial power at Heavy for the next decade, it should help their program in many ways, and maybe they can contend for a title at some point as well.

Not convinced Kerk enters college as a heavyweight. Would guess he holds 197 for a year or two then finishes as a 230ish pound heavyweight and wrestles internationally as a 97kg

For those of us who don't follow pee wee wrestling, what has this next Steveson done that makes him better than Junior world champ/2X cadet world champ?  Also, is his name Brands Steveson?  Sanderson Steveson?

Cornell could use a little bit of that problem too.

Has Cornell ever had an AA at heavy? I know they have had some great 184 and 197 pounders

He weighed in at 201 in April, he's 16, and he's not close to being maxed out physically. He won't be going 195 this year. All things point to not making 197... Ever.

Gavin Hoffman worked his way down, but he was a little pudgy.

This scenario has Kerkvliet two years behind Gable, but he is only one behind. Kerkvliet = Manville

Weighed in at 201 to wrestle 220. Full feed.

Yes. Only 10-15 pounds of room for 197. And that was 5 months ago for a 16 year old kid with a lean frame.

You keep hoping he can't make 97, and I'll keep hoping he can.

LP is right - This kid is very young and already north of 200 lbs with a big frame.  He will be 240 by the time he graduates HS - he will be a college Heavyweight all 4 years and I will be very surprised if he ends up at MN if Steveson is still there with 3 years left to wrestle.

When I first saw the thread title "Minnesota's Heavyweight "Problem" is Solved!", I thought the first post would be...

 

The Minnesota Gophers announced today that Headshuck's eligibility has been restored and he will be joining the team immediately. Intermat has him ranked # 2 - just behind Snyder.  WIN magazine has the two tied for the top spot.  And, finally, FloWrestling has the returning Gopher star firmly entrenched in the top spot at # 1. 

 

Insiders indicate that Flo's ranking decision came only after a lengthy and heated debate among their staff.  However, in the end, the brilliant argument articulated by Willie Saylor prevailed over his lesser intelligent (but otherwise capable) colleague, Christian Pyles.
