True Freshmen

Recommended Posts

Watching the college football title game, I was struck by the number of true freshmen in prominent roles. Clemson had a true frosh at wide receiver and even at QB.

Alabama had true freshman at QB last year and the year before. If true freshmen can compete in football-- and are often the best players in basketball-- why does it seem pretty rare for even the top recruits to wrestle as true freshmen. I know there are exceptions like Lee, Steveson and Dake. But even for junior world champs like Lee and Steveson, there was talk of redshirting. Why is that?
