Did You Know?:

  • NCAA College coaches cannot legally contact you until June 15th going into your junior year.
  • A fully funded NCAA wrestling program only has 9.9 scholarships. With 30-40 guys on the team, and 10 guys in the starting lineup, not even every starter is on a full ride.
  • In 2018 there were 245,564 male high school wrestlers, an increase of 760 wrestlers from the previous year. There were 16,562 female wrestlers in 2018, an increase of 1,975 from the previous year.
  • In 2018, only 4.1% of male and 2.3% of female high school wrestlers, went on to wrestle in college. The percent of male wrestlers that went DI was even smaller (1.0%).
  • Since 1989, over a hundred college wrestling programs have been dropped.

Combine all of these factors, and getting recruited to wrestle in college is harder than ever, and getting a scholarship is even harder. Why leave it up to chance? Let us help.
