Oklahoma State Wrestling: Chance Marsteller transfers to Lock Haven

New, comments

The four-time Pennsylvania state champion is headed back to the Keystone State.

One of the most accomplished wrestlers in Pennsylvania high school history is returning to his hometown state to continue his collegiate career.

Chance Marsteller announced his decision to transfer from Oklahoma State to Lock Haven on Twitter.

Marsteller redshirted his first season with the Cowboys, compiling a 14-4 record in open tournaments. He became OSU's starter at 157 pounds last season and had a 6-5 mark, including a pin and two technical falls. His season ended prematurely when coach John Smith had him sit the rest of the season for violating team rules.

Smith's son, Joe, took his spot at 157. The true freshman went on to win the Big 12 tournament and earn All-American status at the NCAA Championships at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Marsteller was 166-0 and won four PIAA Class AAA championships during his prep career at Kennard-Dale High School. He verbally committed to Penn State before changing his mind and heading to Stillwater.
