Breakdown of the Wrestling Commitments and their Weights and Recruiting Rankings

The Pokes have gotten better and deeper in the past few weeks.

It’s been an exciting few weeks for wrestling recruiting at OSU as four top-10 ranked wrestlers committed. I was asked by a reader to put together a list of all the OSU commits, what weights they project at, and where they rank. I thought that was a great idea, so here it is.

2019 Flo Weight/Rank Intermat Weight/Rank Projected OSU Wt.
Colt Newton 126/Unranked 126/Unranked 141
Reece Witcraft 126/No. 7 126/Unranked 133-141
Brevin Balmeceda 160/No. 2 152/No. 8 157-165
Chance Mclane 152/Unranked 152/Unranked 149-157
Triston Wills 160/Unranked 160/Unranked 165

 

2020 Flo Weight/Rank Intermat Weight/Rank Projected OSU Wt.
Trevor Mastrogiovanni 120/No. 5 113/No. 1 125-133
Dustin Plott 170/No. 4 160/No. 7 174-184
Konner Doucet 195/No. 6 195/Unranked 197-285

A few notes.

The Flo rankings are more recent. Intermat hasn’t updated the ranks since last year, so that’s why the weights are different and some guys are ranked drastically different than Flo ranks them.

As a whole, when you look at what’s here and what’s already in the room, this is a pretty good spread across weights, which is important. You can still see spots where OSU may have some needs though. Specifically one upper weight, one middleweight, and maybe one lower weight.

I’ll try and give my thoughts on how OSU could fill some of those spots in the coming days, including some takes on AJ Ferrari, who I know many are curious about.
