This is a part of the ranking series United World Wrestling started last year.
Oliver will be wrestling at the Dave Schultz Memorial at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. One of the marquee matchups for Oliver will likely be with Frank Molinaro. Molinaro is currently wrestling with the Oklahoma RTC at OU.
