Kaden Gfeller has opted to stay home.

The three-time undefeated Oklahoma State champion from Heritage Hall announced his commitment Monday to Oklahoma State on Twitter.

Gfeller, who was a FloNational champ at 113 pounds in 2015, is ranked No. 9 on FloWrestling's junior big board and No. 4 at 132 pounds. He has also placed at Super 32 and is a multiple Fargo All-American.

Gfeller choose the Cowboys over Oklahoma, Nebraska, Virginia Tech and Penn State. He's projected to wrestle 141 pounds for the Cowboys.

The commit could mean much more to the Cowboys in November. Gfeller has a strong friendship with Daton Fix, who is 121-0 in his career with three state championships, and No. 2 in the nation at 126. Fix will announce his commitment in November at FloWrestling's headquarters in Austin, Texas. He's projected to be a 125/133-pounder.

The Cowboys currently have redshirt freshman Nick Piccininni slated to take over 125 next season after Eddie Klimara's graduation, while sophomore Kaid Brock will be at 133. Defending national champion Dean Heil will remain at 141 for his junior season, and Anthony Collica will cap his career at 149 this season, leaving the spot potentially open for Gfeller as a true freshman if Heil does not move up.
