    Crazy how different athletes peak at different times. There's a US world team member and a world medallist that didn't make the cut.

    Jamill Kelly isn't on this list and he was an Olympic silver medalist, he could be on the other list Jensen is hanging on to. Looking at his total career he is in that league, but I'm not sure from how good he was in college that he is on the list.

    Kelley was a zero time AA with no real collegiate honors, so he does not come close to any of these lists.

    Other guys that have done well on the national Freestyle level that are not even under consideration:

    Obe Blanc
    Andy Hrovat
    Mo Lawal (wrestled 3 years DII)
    Daniel Cormier (wrestled 2 year JC)

    I might not have been clear, but Jamil is the one who came to mind about being a world medalist not on the list, but wasn't sure he should be anyway.

    I think Mo and Cormier are different from the first two. They both came in and could compete when they got to D1. Cormier especially was probably ready from the start, if not ready for other reasons. Because of Mo's lack of experience he might not have been, but obviously got spooled up in a hurry. I suppose that would be a slightly different list, guys not in D1 who could have won/been multi-AAs in D1.

    If I were evaluating the totality of each guy's career both Jamill and Zadick would have been on the list (and high on it) but just going with what went down in college.

    Zadick is the world silver medallist and Shawn Bunch is the world team member.
