Advice on Style & Technique for Lanky Wrestlers

My son is going into his freshman year of high school. He's a pretty good wrestler. Last season was his 3rd year wrestling and as an 8th grader he was a state qualifier at 155 (IESA). My question has to do with his body type and what aspects of technique he should focus on. At 14 years of age, he is now 6'2", 162 lbs with about 9% body fat. He's muscular and strong but lanky and still growing. He probably win's 85% of his matches but when he doesn't win, it's because he get's "caught" and pinned. He literally either wins or gets pinned! I think failure to keep his arms in tight is part of that. I'm just looking for some training advice for a lanky wrestler both offensively and defensively. I've scoured the Internet and there's not much out there on the topic.
