Thread: Best wrestler this year from the feet?

    Default Best wrestler this year from the feet?

    Who do you think will be the best NCAA wrestler this year from neutral? I think it's Burroughs by a good deal. His shot and reshots are awesome and he has a great double. Humphrey is also pretty good from the feet, as is Nickerson

    As ignorant as this may sound, Metcalf. It seems like the default answer for questions regarding NCAA wrestling for the average person without much knowledge towards NCAA wrestling or wrestlers, but I believe he's the best. He seems to take people down consistently without much effort. The only times he really has problems is when he begins to panic and loses his composure.

    No, it isn't ignorant at all, and I completely agree with you. He is very good from the feet, and has great shots and reshots as well. He didn't look half bad in his finals match against Paulson at Vegas, and that ankle pick was sweet.

    Yeah. I think people are over-exaggerating the effects that the finals loss will have on him, it was only one loss, and I think that if anything, it will help. Metcalf may have gotten too big a head near the end of last year, because he was just dominating everyone. Idk. Now that he has been given an L again, I think his senior year will be fantastic, with Caldwell and Bubba both out, it's def his year.

    That's exactly what I said. It'll help motivate him for next year. I think he'll come back and dominate again but this time all the way through the finals and then continue on to be a good world freestyle wrestler

    Yeah. Last year, he really seemed to turn it on after getting pinned by Caldwell. I don't know what happened, because Brent looked great in the finals for the Big 10s and all the way throuhg NCAAs until finals. It's not like he had four or five big losses, it was just one.

    Leen was pretty damn slick from the feet, but I think Burroughs is a little better. Leen vs. Burroughs was a great match and there was some absolutely awesome action from the feet, but Burroughs looked just a little better, although it was extremely close.
