Thread: Interesting John Smith Quote

    Default Interesting John Smith Quote

    John Smith says: ?Several people have slotted Jordan Oliver as the starter, but we do have Tyler Shinn here as well. He is a senior this year. Obviously, Jordan had a good redshirt year and a good summer wrestling freestyle. As he becomes disciplined with his weight, he will be a bear at 133. I feel comfortable that we?ll see both guys wrestle for us this season. Tyler Dorrell and Ricky Dellagatta are here as well. J.J. Goblet will definitely redshirt.?

    From OSUS official website.

    Is there any chance that Shinn hangs with Oliver in the room? Or is it just a case of Smith wanting to reward a guy who has always been very competent and loyal to the program, but has never been able to succeed at the highest level?

    I think it's just coach speak. He doesnt want to disrespect Shinn but I suspect that he knows that Oliver is going to be the man for him at 133 this year.

    I have no idea Ricky Dellagatta still was eligible, must have been quite a redshirt after Kentucky lost their program

    Nice catch! I didn't realize until your comment that is Ricky, JUNIOR! If genetics are any sort of factor, he could be a good one.

    Oliver can't make 133, so Shinn might see some mat time initially. Eventually, Oliver will get there (Smith will make sure of that). I'm afraid it might affect his performance down the stretch. Unfortunately, I came by this info after the draft!

    This is the first I've heard about Oliver not being able to make 133, didn't he make it consistently last year as well as 132 all summer for freestyle?
