I will disagree that it is the single best tournament for recruiting.

Fargo USE TO BE the single best tournament for recruiting HOWEVER now with all the social media out there colleges are not using Fargo to the extent as far as recruiting as they did back in the 70s-80s-90s.

There was a recent article on Open Mat talking about how many D1 All-Americans there were and checked their wrestling resume and do you know that over 50% of the D1 All-Americans DID NOT EVEN PLACE AT FARGO.
Believe this if you want. I just hope you're not selling it to any student athletes.

Ironman, Doc B, Powerade, Dvorak, Beast, Stampede, Super 32, Cheesehead, FloNats, Folkstyle Nats, Preps, are top tier tourneys and great for local/regional recruiting. But the big fish is Fargo.
