Stevo Poulin, a three-time New York state champion and Cadet World team member, has listed Oklahoma State as one of the top five schools he’s been in contact with the most.
Poulin also included Lehigh, North Carolina State, Ohio State and Penn State, he told FloWrestling. The list is not a final or top five. He visited the Buckeyes and WolfPack prior to the NCAA’s in-person recruiting restrictions due to concerns about the coronavirus.
Poulin is the top-ranked 125-pounder and No. 8-ranked wrestler overall in the 2021 recruiting class, according to FloWrestling. He was teammates with OSU heavyweight commit Kyle Haas, the younger brother of OSU’s recruiting coordinator Tyler Caldwell. Poulin plans to visit OSU, Lehigh, NC State and Penn State once the NCAA restrictions are lifted after May 31.
Poulin is projected to be at 125 in college after wrestling at 133 pounds this past season. OSU has two incoming freshman at 125 with Jakason Burks and Alex Yokubaitis along with Trevor Mastrogiovanni, who could go 133 or grow into the 141 spot. Burks could move up to 133 if Poulin comes to Stillwater.
If Poulin were to commit to OSU, he would be following in the footsteps of fellow New York native Nick Piccininni, who was a three-time NWCA All-American and a member of OSU’s 100-win club at 125 pounds.
