Brevin Balmeceda Commits to Wrestle at Oklahoma State

On Monday night the Cowboys picked up a huge commitment for the 2019 class. FloWrestling announced that the No. 1-ranked high school wrestler in the country at 152 pounds, Brevin Balmeceda, would be spending his college days in Stillwater.

Balmeceda put OSU in his top six a few months ago and ultimately it came down to the Pokes and Iowa. The Cowboys won out in this battle for the No. 12 overall prospect and top ranked 152-pounder in the country.

The ranking says it, but this kid is big time. He’s won just about all of the big national tournaments — Super 32, a three-time NHSCA National tournament winner and a three-time state champ. He’s a very good wrestler.

One of the biggest things with Balmeceda is his size fit. It’s pretty perfect for both the Cowboys and him. Flo projects him as a college 157, and that’s a definite need for OSU. The projected starter for next year is transfer Andrew Shomers. Shomers has two years of eligibility left, so theoretically Balmeceda could come in as a freshman, redshirt for Shomers senior season, then have a good opportunity to take over as the starter as a redshirt freshman.

This makes the fifth commitment for the Cowboys in the 2019 class.
