Oklahoma State redshirt senior Kaid Brock had surgery to repair a torn ACL and meniscus in his knee this past week and will likely miss the season, reports Seth Duckworth of Pistols Firing Blog.
Brock went 22-9 for the Cowboys last season after moving up to 141 pounds. The Stillwater native was a Big 12 tournament finalist and fell short of earning All-American status for the third time in his career at the NCAA Championships.
Brock, who was a three-time high school state champion at Stillwater, also sustained a season-ending injury as a true freshman at the Southern Scuffle in January 2016.
The Cowboys will likely turn to undersized redshirt sophomore Kaden Gfeller of Oklahoma City (Heritage Hall) to start at 141 pounds and redshirt senior Boo Lewallen of Yukon at 149. Gfeller went 30-7 at 149 last season while filling in for Lewallen, who missed time due to shoulder injuries. Lewallen was 29-8 and earned All-American honors at 149 during the 2017-18 season.
Redshirt junior Dusty Hone, who was 10-5 and took second to Gfeller at the Reno Tournament of Champions, could also be an option at 149.
