Wrestling Recruiting: OSU Hosts Some of the Top 2021 Prospects for the TCU Game

Haas, Travis, Young, Weaver, and Burks all in Stillwater this weekend.



Oklahoma State wrestling hosted a few wrestling recruits this weekend. Here are some of the wrestlers the Cowboys had in town this weekend.

Kyle Haas (Maize, Kan.): This is not the first and will likely not be the last time we see Haas in Stillwater. The younger brother of OSU recruiting coordinator Tyler Caldwell is the top ranked heavyweight prospect in the country and the No. 6 overall prospect in the country for 2021 according to FloWrestling. Though Flo projects him as a heavyweight he does fit the size profile that makes you think you could possibly see him at 197 as well. Haas made the World team in both Greco and Freestyle this summer at 95 KG (210 Pounds). He’s also a two time Kansas State champion.

Teague Travis (Tolton Catholic, Mo.): The No. 36 prospect according to Flo, Travis has had an impressive prep career. Over the years he’s been trained by former WVU coach Sammie Henson, who Tyler Caldwell wrestled for at OU and coached with at WVU. This summer he finished 7th at the Junior World team trials at 61 KG (134 pounds). The Cowboys’ biggest future recruiting needs are around the middle weights and this is where Travis projects. He’s a two-time Missouri state champ.

Carter Young (Stillwater, Okla.): Carter Young was a state champion as a freshman at Sand Springs and as a sophomore in Stillwater finished second. He has also been a Fargo champion as a cadet and finished seventh this past summer as a junior. Young has a similar frame to Teague Travis and would slot in well for the Cowboys at one of the middleweights. Young is ranked No. 95 on Flo’s 2021 Big Board. Though Young is a Stillwater product and the hometown ties certainly favor OSU, he’s being pursued by Michigan, Northwestern, Princeton, and others as well.

Dylan Weaver (Lyndhurst, N.J.): Weaver rankes as the top 138-pound wrestler in the state of New Jersey according to FloWrestling. Here’s what Flo says on Dylan.

I feel confident putting Dylan Weaver at #1 here. I know Joey Olivieri won a state title at 106 two years ago but Weaver has been trending up and fast. After a solid freshman year at Bergen Catholic, he transferred home where he is coached by his father and hasn’t missed a step. If New Jersey wrestling gave out a “most improved” superlative, Weaver would have won it. I think he’s the guy to beat this year.

Flo also ranks Dylan as the No. 20 ranked wrestler nationally at 138.

Jakason Burks (Burke, Neb.): Burks is already committed to OSU and is a part of the monster recruiting class they have coming in for 2020. Burks has previously been a Fargo champ, was a runner-up this summer and is ranked at the No. 34 prospect in the 2020 recruiting class.
