Wrestling recruiting: John Smith makes in-home visit to Tate Picklo

The Mustang native is the No. 14 overall prospect in 2021.


Oklahoma State wrestling coach John Smith and assistant Zac Esposito made an in-home visit for Tate Picklo on Monday.

Picklo is the No. 14 overall prospect in the 2021 class, according to FloWrestling. The Mustang, Oklahoma native won his first 6A state championship at 160 pounds last winter. He also made the Greco-Roman Cadet World team during the summer.

Picklo made his first official visit to OSU on Sept. 7 during the Cowboys’ football home opener against FCS McNeese State. Picklo’s twin sister, Trinity, committed to OSU’s soccer program during the visit.

Kendall Cross, a 1989 NCAA champion and 1996 Olympic champion, took to Twitter to advocate for Tate Picklo to follow in his footsteps from Mustang to OSU.
