    Im a junior this year and placed 2nd in state. My final record was 17-2 with 13 pins......i won three tournaments this year out of four..the other tourney i got third.....i wrestle in Arkansas at 125.....my club coach is Pat Smith, the first four time ncaa champion and we reguraly train with osu and olympians...my name isnt really out there at all.....do you think i have a chance of wrestling in college?

    I would think you are better off asking Patt Smith than any of us.
    I would bet that no one from Arkansas is getting money to wrestle DI.
    If you are willing to work hard and get beat up while you improve, you can wrestle in college.

    that sounds impressive, but i don't know much about arkansas wrestling, if you said pennsylvania, new jersey or ohio then it would be a different story, have you done anything out of state?

    You looked pretty good in your highlight video, but a lot of high schoolers are pretty good you gotta get great. To do that you should wrestle a ton of freestyle and train every day. Remember Technique>Speed>Conditioning>Strength

    im gonna tell u that u just need to keep workin hard to make it. I wrestled u (i wrestle for CBHS in memphis) this year and i believe that anyone can make it to the college level if they have the drive and determination, so as long as u stick with it and work with ur coach extra as much as possible, u can make it
