On September 18, we'll see #1 at 220 vs #1 at 285 for the title of baddest big man in the country. When the new rankings come out shortly, Nick Feldman will be ranked #1 at heavyweight and Christian Carroll will be ranked #1 at 220. While this won't be for a weight class #1 spot, it will affect the pound-for-pound rankings and decide the top big man in the country. Feldman wrestles at the heavier weight class; both wrestlers weigh around 235 lbs naturally.  

After winning Super 32 at 195 lbs in the fall, Carroll moved up to 220 lbs for Fargo where he dominated his way to a title. The Indiana native tech falled Noah Pettigrew, who will be #2, 10-0 in the first period. In his post-finals interview, Carroll specifically mentioned that he moved up when he found out Feldman was moving up to heavyweight in an attempt to chase him.

Listen to Christian Carroll talk about chasing down Nick Feldman below.

Feldman spent the past year at 220 lbs before moving up to heavyweight. He went unblemished in that year winning 2020 Who’s #1, Journeymen, Powerade, NHSCA Nationals, National Preps and went undefeated in a bunch of dual tournaments. His dominance and the frequency with which he wrestles has shot Feldman up to #11 in the pound-for-pound rankings (will be top-five when graduated seniors come out). 

Watch Nick Feldman win his Who’s #1 debut in 2020 below.

With Carroll already having defeated #2 at 220, Chase Horne losing in the Fargo finals, and Jim Mullen focusing on football in the fall, this is the match to make. Both of these wrestlers are big men with physical handfighting that still somehow wrestle a very hard pace and have a high shot output. This won’t be a heavyweight snoozer. The two best big men in the country are wrestling for a shot to call themselves the best high school big man out there.
