MY experience is HS was easily the most pressure I have seen. College is MUCH more difficult. MUCH more of a grind. Lots of great wrestlers who love the sport just aren't willing to put up with the nearly insane demands of NCAA D1 wrestling.

But in terms of psychological/emotional pressure? High School hands down.
I also wrestled in college and found the pressure there to be much greater than in high school. In high school, there were only a few (3-4) guys at your weight who were really skilled, so you did not feel the presssure the rest of the time. In college, every guy you wrestled was pretty good, and if you were on scholarship (as I was), you felt added pressure to perform well.
