Oklahoma State Recruiting: Chance Marsteller switches commitment to the Cowboys

USA TODAY Sports

The nation's number one wrestling recruit Chance Marsteller has reportedly switched his commitment to the Pokes.

Multiple reports surfaced last week indicating the top-rated wrestler in the country, Chance Marsteller, has switched his school of choice from Penn State to Oklahoma State. The following comment appeared on his facebook page last week.

To clarify any confusion I will be wrestling for Okie State

Of course, nothing is official until the signing period begins this week on November 13th.

Marsteller currently holds a 125-0 record in 3 seasons at Kennard-Dale High School in Fawn Grove, PA, including 3 state titles. Chance has been committed to Penn State, who edged out Oklahoma State in the 2013 National Championship by four points. Coach Smith has been unable to comment on the situation as NCAA rules prohibits any coach from talking about recruits.

Marsteller is projected to wrestle at either 165 or 174 pounds according to Amateur Wrestling News. Perhaps an important factor in the decision is his desire to compete for Olympic medals in the future. There is no doubt that Coach Smith has an extended history at helping collegiate wrestlers reach their full potential.

If Chance signs with the Pokes, it will be the 5th nationally ranked commit for the Cowboys. Here is the current list of commits according to D1 College Wrestling:

  • Chandler Rogers - Mead, WA. 165 lbs
  • Ryan Bleese - Bismark, ND. 157 lbs
  • Gary Wayne Harding - Collinsvile, OK. 141 lbs
  • Mike Magaldo - Watchung Hills, NJ. 133 lbs
