Stats and State by State Info about NCAA Qualifiers. PA is king

I know that some of these guys have complicated stories. I’ve added some notes. The power wrestling belt is clearly from Jersey west to Ohio. As usual Pennsylvania is king with nearly 40% more qualifiers than Ohio. I think that the best way to qualify potency is qualifiers per number of participants.
NCAA Qualifiers per Thousand High School Wrestlers last seven years
PA – 5.56
VT – 5.04
OH – 2.66
NJ – 2.57
SD – 2.07
IA – 2.00
CO – 1.79
DE – 1.76
OK – 1.69
MI – 1.50
PA has out scored the 2nd place state in tournament points by an average of 40% over the last few years also. Ohio usually closes the gap in All Americans.
This years qualifiers by state.
