Geo Martinez to Ok State

Wasn't something I expected to happen. I'm guessing he wanted to go somewhere after the head coach fiasco at BSU, and there are close ties between the BSU and Ok State program.

I am guessing he redshirts and takes over 149/157 after Collica graduates.

You often see wrestlers moving after a coaching change, but a big blow for Boise.

I've always enjoyed BSU doing well so losing Martinez to my #1 team has created a lot of mixed feelings for me

So the TOM article said he has to sit this year because of transfer rules.  They aren't in the same conference, hard to believe Mendoza wouldn't release him.

Are they part of that same new super conference?

Boise is Pac 12, don't think they left there.

Based on the information I got, I think he has to sit a year.  However, it is possible that he is simply planning to sit a year (makes sense for the line-up) and I misinterpreted.

Doesn't really matter any way, as he had a redshirt to burn as Collica is a senior.

As an FYI it is called Pangea

I'm told he doesn't have to sit out but is taking a redshirt since Collica is a senior.

I'm surprised more didn't transfer. Heard numerous guys were unhappy when Chris Owen got let go.

That's what I assumed would happen

There is still somewhat of a logjam at Oklahoma State from 133-174 even with Blees and Marstellar leaving. Logjams are usually good for the team if bad for the individual left out

Confirmed from Boise State that a release was granted and Martinez does not have to sit due to transfer.  I put an update on our article.
