Oklahoma State will have three class of 2021 commits wrestle at FloWrestling’s ‘Who’s Number One’ showcase Saturday in Austin, Texas.
Victor Voinovich of Brecksville, Ohio (152 pounds); Travis Mastrogiovanni of Blair, New Jersey (160); and Kyle Haas of Maize, Kansas (220) will all be in action. All three wrestlers are ranked second in their weight class and in the top 15 of the 2021 class, according to FloWrestling. The event starts at 5 p.m. and can be viewed on FloWrestling.
OSU’s three commits are the most of any other school competing in the event. Iowa, Nebraska and Ohio State each have two. Arizona State, North Carolina State, Northwestern, Oklahoma, Penn State, Princeton, Rutgers and West Virginia all will have one commit in action.
There are 10 uncommitted wrestlers in the field, including three who have listed the Cowboys in their school list: 2021 recruit Cael Valencia of St. John Bosco, California (170); and 2022 recruit Jordan Williams of Collinsville, Oklahoma (126) — both ranked fifth in their class — and third-ranked 2023 recruit Cody Chittum of Blair, New Jersey (138).
No. 2 Victor Voinovich (OSU) vs. No. 1 Jagger Condomitti (Nebraska)
Voinvoich, No. 15-ranked recruit, will wrestle Condomitti for the top spot at 152 pounds. Voinvoich pinned eventual four-time California state champion and Arizona State signee Jesse Vasquez at last year’s event. The future Cowboy was heavily favored to win his second Ohio state championship before the tournament was canceled because of COVID-19. He was also a 2019 runner-up in freestyle at Fargo and folkstyle at the Walsh Ironman.
Condomitti captured his 100th career win this past season for Northampton in Konkrete, Pennsylvania. He has a District 11 PA championship to his name along with four major second-place finishes (Beast of the East, Escape the Rock, Northeast Regional, PIAA 2A).
No. 2 Kyle Haas (OSU) vs. No. 1 Nick Feldman (2022 uncommitted)
Haas, the No. 10 overall recruit in 2021 and No. 2 at 220 pounds, will face uncommitted junior Nick Feldman of Pennsylvania powerhouse Malvern Prep.
Haas is coming off a 27-1 junior season and Kansas Class 5A runner-up finish to North Carolina freshman Cade Lautt on a last-second takedown. He was a 2019 United States’ Cadet World team member in freestyle and Greco-Roman, but only competed in freestyle.
Feldman, ranked No. 11 in 2022, took third in freestyle and won the Greco-Roman title at 182 pounds at last year’s Fargo national championship. He was 47-3 this past season, including winning Beast of the East and runner-up finishes at three major tournaments (Ironman, Powerade and Escape the Rock).
No. 2 Travis Mastrogiovanni (OSU) vs. No. 1 Paddy Gallagher (Ohio State)
Mastrogiovanni, ranked ninth in 2021, will face Ohio State commit Paddy Gallagher, who is ranked No. 6, in a matchup of two wrestlers that lost at last year’s event.
Mastrogiovanni was injured for much of this past season and did not compete at the National Prep tournament. Gallagher, a 2019 junior national champion, went 33-1 for Ohio powerhouse St. Edward and was projected to win the state tournament before it was canceled.
