Impressive that he graduated in three years while wrestling.
He's entering FOR 21-22. He posted on instagram that he's taking this year off for some hip issues and then coming back for the possibility of wrestling the next year as a grad student which he can't do at an Ivy.
Then he's taking the year off from wrestling but not from school?
That's my take. Some people think that wrestling is a means to an end (like getting a Princeton degree in a timely manner). So he graduates on schedule, and uses his last year of eligibility for a masters degree of some sort.

He's not sure. Just taking the year off from wrestling.

Bottom line: Princeton loses his last year for them and NCAA pts that would have come with it. A major blow.

Bottom Line: One year rentals will become the new norm. Basketball has the one and done as freshmen. Wrestling will be one and done at the end.

Not sure I can find the excerpt offhand but I saw something on the NCAA site that is looking into eliminating that. Possibly from the athlete reps.

There's nothing wrong with someone graduating with eligibility left that wants a graduate degree at a school that offers what they want and can't be found at their current school. In the case of Princeton, they are bound by their BS rules and are losing a good one as a result. The NCAA spoils everything they touch. Leave well enough alone.

For example -- let's use Chris Weiler. If LU tells everyone "be prepared to graduate it 4 years -- and they do -- then what Weiler did fulfilled his obligation. He stayed 4 years and graduated. No one owes anyone anything. Capische?

>>>If LU tells everyone "be prepared to graduate it 4 years -- and they do -- then what Weiler did fulfilled his obligation. He stayed 4 years and graduated. No one owes anyone anything.

.... That's a bottom line assessment but it doesn't usually apply to a blue chip whom they recruit hoping for the 5th year. The "be prepared to graduate" is a heads-up "in case the staff decides they "don't need your extra year." For some who deal with injuries and lean toward HEW status with flattened curve on results -- and graduation w/out any more wrestling -- it becomes a 100% mutually agreeable decision.

Will be interesting his objective.
National Champion and extend wrestling through 2024 Olympic cycle
or
Academic? 6 of Top 12 Environmental Eng and Civil Eng offer wrestling. Lehigh unfortunately not one of them. Cornell on both. :oops:

And that works because Cornell is in such need of yet another 197-pounder. All they need to do is allow grad students to wrestle.
