Control - YES
Down on the mat - YES
Beyond reaction time - ???
When I first watched the video, I felt like it was T2. But, the missing piece is that I only get to see a few seconds of these two wrestlers. So, I don't have a good basis for knowing a better gauge of what reaction time is with these guys. Giving a takedown means that reaction time is very, very brief. And, if it's that brief, then there should be a lot more locking hands called.
My normal bias with high school wrestlers is that I would probably want to see him hold him down a bit longer before giving a takedown. But, like I said, watching in realtime the first time, my instinct said T2.
