Curious why we never see JWar competing in free. He was a Jr World medalist in HS. I recall him putting it on Michael Beard in the Jr Team Trials.
Could it be because he wants a period of time to heal his body and clear his mind? Not really having been fan of freestyle or international wrestling, has it always been such a year round grind for those still competing in college? I understand for those who have graduated. Seems to me in a "combat" sport, year round competition will just lead to injury, bodies breaking down, and a shortened career.

Our guys have traditionally wrestled juniors, which he did after his redshirt year and then waited for graduation. Cass is a machine.
I hope so, the machine had a few damaged components in March.

How is taking time off to heal up a bad thing?
Agree with the poster above who advised that.
Competing year around (or close to it) is unsustainable.
