Quote from: littleguy301 on March 27, 2023, 11:08:24 PMI have something else to have people to think about about competing in 2 sports.Both gavin Nelson and max mcenelly in Minnesota were finalist for Mr Minnesota football. Both played in minnesota as equal to wisconsins level 2 in football. Both had near 2k rushing and both were outstanding LB with Nelson being the player of the game for his teams state title.Both were attending RTC practices for wrestling and playing football. Ask those 2 what it took to be practicing one sport and playing another at the high school level and taking basically college classes. This was high school not D1 college that have sucessfull big ten programs.
Quote from: Army Ant on March 29, 2023, 12:45:53 PMI'm surprised that this conversation is going on. I don't see any reasonable chance that a scholarship power five football player spends any significant amount of time helpiing out the wrestling team, much less competing.
Quote from: head57 on March 28, 2023, 09:34:53 PM285 is plenty big for a DL at UW. Especially with the new 3-3-5 defense. Biggest DL on Cincinnati's 2021 playoff team was 285.
Quote from: BadgerOne on March 29, 2023, 02:24:33 PMHe certainly seems interested in trying to pursue both sports and considering he is the top ranked 285 in high school as a junior this is a very relevant topic. Plus, if he drops a sport, it might even be football not wrestling. Based on his social media, he seems pretty into wrestling and might even find more success in that sport given he is #1 in his high school weight class vs. being a 3 star football recruit. Either way, he seems like a class act and Wisconsin would be lucky to get him whether as a two sport athlete or a one sport athlete.
Quote from: bigoil on March 29, 2023, 06:49:30 PMSomeone wrestling 285 does necessarily weigh 285. Not many lineman weighing 300# are running around at 7-10% body fat either.

Not many lineman weighing 300# are running around at 7-10% body fat either. Of course they don't necessarily weigh 285. But they do have to weight at MOST 285 and therein lies the problem.
