We likely haven't seen the last of Gable Steveson on a college wrestling mat. The Olympic champion and 2X NCAA champion confirmed with FloWrestling that he wants to return to NCAA competition next year. The Minnesota heavyweight won national titles for the Gophers in 2021 and 2022 before retiring from NCAA and Olympic wrestling. However, after making his return to freestyle wrestling this spring at the US Open and Final X, he wants to come back to NCAA wrestling as well.

Steveson still has to sort out scheduling details with the WWE before his return is official, but if all goes according to plan, he will be back on the NCAA mat next season.

Steveson started his career at Minnesota as a true freshman in the 2018-2019 season. With 2021 not counting toward his eligibility, Steveson has one year of eligibility remaining.

Go Gophers!!
