Another possibility: joining The Church of the Latter Day Saints before plunging into the senior year and serving on a mission in a country noted for wrestling. Practice sessions could be combined with converting practice partners although this would have a downside in some areas and reduce the lkelihood of reaching 31.
I'm not saying it can't happen, but Mormon wandering around Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Daegistan, Chechnya is not a good idea.

The average age of college students has been on the increase as has the number of semesters enrolled to complete a college degree. Most students do not complete a degree within 6 years now. Personally, I wish NCAA would get rid of age restrictions. If someone in college wants to do an extracurricular activity, let them. The way the NCAA is working, eventually there will be 4 sports. Football, Basketball, Baseball and Track for men and equivalent number of sports for women and women participants.
