However, this year's event will move from folkstyle to Freestyle and Greco and serve as the 2019 Men's Cadet Pan American Team Trials. The wrestlers with the highest point total in combined styles will represent the United States at Cadet Pan Ams in Morelia, Mexico, in June. Additionally, wrestlers who place Top 8 will receive separation (seeding) criteria for the Cadet World Team Trials in Akron. 

A year ago, 41 percent of the NCAA All-Americans were FloNationals All-Americans in high school, including 10 of the 20 NCAA finalists and six NCAA champions.
