    Isn't Burroughs also going to be spending those next few years focusing on refining his own (still raw) freestyle game as well?

    Nobody can touch Burroughs. Surprised to even see this thread.

    He said in an interview after finals that he was.

    Burroughs is too good for anyone right now, especially at freestyle.

    You apparently missed the world team trials. He gave Burroughs a real challenge.

    Certainly! But I think DT's development curve will be steeper than Burroughs. Burroughs is clearly ahead of the game now (in my book) but I expect DT to narrow the gap and at some point pass him. Don't know when that will be, but not until DT's college career is over I feel sure. But I must admit, I'm learning not to rule out anything with DT. Still, I'd be very surprised if DT passed Burroughs in the next 2 years in freestlye.

    While Taylor may have a chance to pass a world champ I would by no means expect it. The men that Burroughs is going up against are completely different animals than the boys Taylor is wrestling. Freestyle is perfect for Burroughs

    Yes, but Taylor has proved to be a man among boys. Give him the time to focus only on FS and I believe he becomes the best in the world.

    I just think it sucks to have all this talent in one weight. 66,84 and 60 would benefit from some of these guys.
