CA

1. Stephen Abas 

Career Record: 144-4 

NCAA Placement: 4-1-1-1

 

Abas is probably the second best wrestler from 2000-2010, only behind Cael. If he didn't wrestle during the same period, he may have a Hodge or two to his name. 

 

2. Isaiah Martinez

Record: 116-3

NCAA Placement: 1-1-2-2

 

It might be a bit of recency bias to put him over Pendleton and Varner, but Martinez has the least losses of the three--by quite a bit. 

 

3. Jake Varner

Record: 121-10

NCAA Placement: 2-2-1-1

 

I think Varner's overall body of work is better than Pendleton's. 

 

Snub: 2x Champ Chris Pendleton. 

 

I think Zahid Valencia will have a good case to be #1 on this list if he goes undefeated next season and caps it off with title.

It would be cool if there were enough people on this forum to give us the top 3 in each state across the US. Even if they’re not from the state it’s at the very least interesting to look through

Tennessee-

Jordan Leen- 3x AA (7,1, 3)

Phillip Simpson- 3x AA at 3 wt classes (5, 7, 2)

Nick Marable-2x AA (7, 3)

I forgot about Marable. Shocking considering I grew up around the corner. I put Matt Keller in my list earlier in this post. He had a round of 12, 8th and 4th. By the way a Simpson finished eighth as a sophomore

Maryland

Kyle Snyder - tOSU (2,1,1,1)

Mack Lewnes - Cornell (4, seeded 1st-dnp, 2, 4)

Michael Cannon - American U (6,8,3)

 

I'd add Rico Chiapperelli - Iowa - (5,4,1).

Honorable mention - Lloyd "Butch" Keaser - Navy (4,3) and world champion gold in '73, and Olympic silver in '76.

Oh I definitely thought of him. Just thought the others were a hair ahead. If you add the high school career then he would certainly be on the list.

Alabama.  While incredibly proud of these guys for what they were able to do - clearly, we have a long way to go on the national stage by comparison to the other 49.

Look at the rise of a Georgia and Texas. One big name can start things really rolling  over there. I’d bet if Alabama Crimson Tide had one rich person with influence, who loved  wrestling, and got the sport going D1 there, your youth would follow.
