    2024 US Open U20 Freestyle: By the Numbers

    While most of the wrestling world is focused on the upcoming Olympic Games, most of the typical summer schedule is still taking place. One of the most interesting events of the season is the U20 U.S. Open. It is an interesting mix of the top prospects entering college from the high school ranks as well as wrestlers who have already dipped their toes into the collegiate scene. The following looks at some of the top statistical performers from the recent U20 tournament in men’s freestyle. 

    Point Differential

    Jimmy Mullen redshirted this past season for Virginia Tech. There were certainly some highs for the well-regarded prospect as he went 6-1 in the Midlands tournament, but he went only 1-2 in his three dual-meet matches with losses against veterans Lewis Fernandes (Cornell) and Owen Trephan (NC State). However, his performance this past weekend at the U.S. Open will certainly get the fans excited in Blacksburg.

    Mullen not only won the U20 heavyweight crown, but he also averaged 4.98 points per minute, while only allowing his opponents to score 0.96 points per minute. His resulting +4.02 differential was the highest across the entire U20 freestyle tournament.
