    So,im asking, am i college material?

    Here would be some of my questions...

    Your match count for a season seems low compared to wrestlers from our state. (Although you have a good win & pin percentage.) In Minnesota the large majority of wrestlers who advance to state have a 30+ win record just for that season and if they were to place high in state could be over 40 wins just for that season.

    What is the average number of matches a wrestler wrestles during a season in high school in your state during the high school season?

    The majority of high school state champions in Minnesota also wrestle freestyle and greco during the high school off season. This would bring the average state champion's total match count up into the 70-90+ matches per season. (including high school, freestyle & greco matches)

    Do you also wrestle freestyle and greco? If you haven't yet I would highly recommend it.

    Have you wrestled at national tourneys in high school or in freestyle & greco? If not I would suggest doing so in freestyle and greco.

    Without doing these extra things I think it would be very unlikely you would wrestle for a D1 college school. You could perhaps wrestle at D2 or D3 school but even for many of those schools if they have a competitive program you may not get in or would be relegated to 2nd or 3rd string until you proved yourself.
    If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them.
