Olympic Redshirt or The Kyle Snyder Route

Recommended Posts

Steveson might not have senior level accolades (yet), but he is a junior world champ, which is no small achievement on the international circuit. I don’t see really any flaws with him and Minnesota taking this approach, seems like a “best of both worlds” for both sides. Gable gets to prioritize his freestyle chops in prep for 2020, Minnesota still gets big points at ncaa’s/big tens/ the Iowa/psu/other marquee dual.

I want GS to succeed, but Kyle Snyder is a unique athlete. It literally made sense for Snyder to contest at worlds and get through his ncaa eligibility. Steveson feels more like he wants to associate with the gimmick of the schedule

Not everybody can do what Snyder did because Snyder is Snyder.  There's a reason why we haven't see many athletes do what Snyder(I'll throw J'Den in there as well from recent athletes) did while still in college.

 

Steveson is really good right now and if he can handle all of that travel/studies/NCAA wrestling matches, then I don't see why not.  The WTT/OTT is coming around sooner than later, so I'm sure we'll see him push to get more experience to try and get that spot from Gwiz.
