Does being a 4X high school champ increase the likelihood of being an NCAA champ?

Recommended Posts

Putting together some data, if you know of a place to get it for your state, send it to me.

*Thanks to the guy who does not like Republicans @JasonBryant's Almanac it has made it a lot easier to verify NCAA placings.

In modern times for Indiana we had 4xers:

Lance Ellis 1989 - barely saw mat time at IU

Alex Tsirtsis and Blake Maurer 2004 - Tsirtsis 1x AA, Maurer was a NCAA qualifier before injuries 

Angel Escobedo 2005 - NCAA champ, and 4x AA

Jason Tsirtsis - NCAA champ,  I think his style of keeping matches close and win at the end caught up to him along with all the personal stuff 

Chad Red - 4x AA, but not really close to winning a title.

I think a lot has to do with what school they end up at and how the coaching staff further develops them.  Sometimes it is a case of being a man among boys in HS and then getting slapped by reality when you get in a D1 program.  Take a guy like NIck Lee.  He was only a 1x state champ.  He lost to Micic as a freshman and Red as a jr (skipped his sr year).  He goes to Penn St and has outperformed both of those guys on the NCAA level.

More fuel for the NJ proud folks!

On 4-timers alone New Jersey is 2 for 4. I'm still trying to find the data on the 1970's and 1980's. From what I have seen it looks like there were only three chances at a title in the 1980's.

More information would be greatly appreciated if you have it.

Missouri has had two: Cody Brewer and J'Den Cox. There are several that have won 4 (state titles) and became AA's or multiple time AA's. 

Off the top of my head:

Zach Bailey (OU), Scott Schatzman (Northwestern), Brock Mauller (MU), Jaydin Eierman(MU/Iowa)  

I'm probably missing a few.

3 chances at which title in the 70s and 80s?

NCAAs had 4 chances all that time as did NJ.

i was sure the answer to this question was 'no' but looks like i'll have to update my priors based on this new data.

Everything in your life has  eventually become a revelation that you should switch from single ply to double ply. Unfortunately you're not yet quite there with your ranking knowledge

Ellis was an NCAA qualifier before dropping out (I believe).

 On the right side of this page lists all the 4 timers ( 4 of them) with 2 national champs, and all the 3 timers in NJ history  ( 7 of them went on to win national titles)
