Hopke U17 World Champion
« on: July 30, 2022, 04:46:32 PM »
Only wrestled 220 in h.s. but won world title at 242. I doubt he wrestles for Badgers though.

He blew through the field.  Does he play football?

Overall, it was a great day for the US, gold, three silvers and s bronze,

Not sure, but he blew through the WI field too, and was nationally ranked. That's tough to do for a 220 lb sophomore.

He may well end up UW, but on the football field. A 220 lb projects nicely to a 270 D end or inside LB. Obviously he has the quickness and strength. Any idea how tall he is?

I'm not aware of him being a star football player. I wouldn't necessarily assume that he would be a D1 starter in football.
