I understand that some folks in Iowa were disappointed with his Hawkeye career, but that doesn't make all the buzz that surrounded him disappear like it never happened. It never happened prior to that point to an Indiana wrestler. Plus, Jason is a different person than Alex. I don't think he's wired in the same way, and part of that is attributed to Alex's experiences. Alex didn't psychologically handle losing well and I see Jason bounce back from tough defeats.
I will be surprised if they redshirt him. He's ready. Could he improve with a redshirt? Probably, but he can improve by competing in live matches too. He's very physically prepared, in my opinion, and he's handled pressure well to this point
