This limits the damage, an older kid with some experience who was at OTC. SlayBaugh was their only other option and obviously he’s not ready.

It sucks we don’t have Suriano and this doesn’t make up for it but it at least it’s an answer.

Seems like he's been hampered with injuries for pretty much his entire college wrestling career, running up until last preseason. Has there been any word on what the injury/injuries were and if he's good to go now?

With respect to LDS missions, I'm shocked when guys can serve those and come back motivated for d1 wrestling.

I can't wait for a busy off-season to see who transfers to the big 4 to keep them in contention for an NCAA title. TOSU doesn't have to have a rebuild year, they could just reload.

They should just do what is done on youth forums for big off-season dual events.

"Fill in the blank top 4 teams....we are fielding a very competitive team for the 2018-19 NCAA tournament but are in need for a fill in the weights...both semester enrollment isn't necessary, you don't even have to wrestle all matches".

"Email blank coach.edu to secure your spot".

Who needs to recruit.

Not trying to start an argument, maybe I’m not getting what you’re saying but TOSU loses 3 big hammers next year. McKenna done too?


PSU loses Keener and ZR plus now Kuhn.

I know TOSU has recruited well but I’m pretty comfortable with what PSU has next season.

next year is a long way away--this time last year I felt very comfortable with what PSU had this year--but then NS changed everything.. just saying

They have RBY and Teasdale coming in to cover Keener and 125. Lee, Berge, or Verkleeren can cover 149. Likely Lee at 141 and Berge at 149. The rest stands pat. I have no issue with that line up although I would rather see the freshman get a RS year, Teasdale in particular.

I figured he'd immediately RS as I think Teasdale and RBY are more "college-ready" at this stage.

2 year mission...valid argument in saying an unfair advantage....also valid point in that it is 2 years of no training at all

 

Been my experience following a lot of these kids out west, the two year mission is a killer for their wrestling careers. They literally get - as you said - zero wrestling in. Lot of miles on bikes, or walking, is usually the extent of their work outs. Then the expectation is to get married and start having babies. Wrestling goes from being on the front burner to barely registering.

I don't see Teasdale doing much at that level. I've seen him for years, he has peaked. He's limited athletically,
RBY will be a much better college wrestler.

Exactly how I feel. I said the same thing when he decommitted from Iowa and RBY was rumored to be interested in Iowa. I thought it was a fortunate swap for Iowa but it never happened.

Will Teasdale become the next Gulibon?

I’m not LDS, but to think it’s an advantage would be false. Tanner Hall did his mission and there was little time to do anything wrestling related. Two years away from any practice and any competition might keep you fresh, but it also makes you rusty. There are tons of wrestlers who have taken their LDS mission ... how many of them were All-Americans? Ain’t that many. Matt Brown, Aaron Holker, Ben Kjar, Tanner Hall ... those are the only four I can think of off the top of my head. If it were an advantage, Utah Valley should be a lot better than they are ...

Carl needs to start sending these guys to Dagestan for their missions. Spread the good word and get some mat time.

If someone would take two years off from wrestling in high school and come back as a 20 year old vs 18 and younger he may have a slight advantage because of physical maturity. But you are talking about 25 vs. 23 here. Both would be fully mature young men in their prime. The two years off from wrestling training has to be a big disadvantage here. Kudos to those who have been able to do that and still find success
