OSU Wrestling: Jakason Burks Lists OSU in Top 5

OSU is in the mix for a big-time recruit out of Nebraska.

One of the top lower weight wrestlers in the country has Oklahoma State in his top five.

Jakason Burks, who is out of Omaha Burke, Nebraska, announced via Twitter on Christmas Eve that OSU, Nebraska, and Iowa State were all on his list, while he was keeping two other spots in his top five open.

Burks is currently ranked No. 6 nationally at 120 pounds by FloWrestling. He was a member of the Cadet Greco World Team this summer at 51 KG and a Cadet Freestyle national champion at 113 pounds this summer. As a high school junior, Burks ranks as the No. 16 overall recruit in his class according to Flo.


Oklahoma State has already received commitments from a trio of the top juniors in the country with Dustin Plott, Konner Doucet, and Trevor Mastrogiovanni. Landing Burks would be a really nice addition to that group.

Burks projects as a college 125 or 133. His size fits well with the current commitments/signees as some combination of Burks, Mastrogiovanni, and Witcraft from 125-141 would create a very strong lineup and would seemingly work pretty well.

As far as recruiting rankings go, the group of Mastrogiovanni, Burks, and already signed senior Reece Witcraft, who recently took over the No. 1 spot in the country at 126, would likely create one of if not the best group of lower weights in the country.

Burks came in on his official visit along with Konner Doucet, Reece Witcraft, and others this past fall.
