STILLWATER, Okla. – Oklahoma State wrestling coach John Smith announced the signing of seven student-athletes to National Letters of Intent today. The incoming class of signees is regarded as one of the nation’s top recruiting classes and is heavy on in-state recruits.

Looks like a really tough class for Okie State! With Oliver and Meade this year, next year's class will complement nicely.

I reread the article. Did anyone else notice this?

"Blake Rosholt

Projected Weight Class at OSU: 285 pounds

Ponca City, Okla./Ponca City

High School: Attends Ponca City HS in Ponca City, Okla., where he was runner-up for the 2008 state title at 160 pounds … Led Ponca City to a second-place finish in the Class 5A team standings."


Is that correct?  Blake Rosholt went from 160 in his Junior year of HS to projecting as a hwt in college?  Must be wrong.

It could be accurate. I know of several who have done this. Tolly Thompson went from around that weight as a Soph. to 189 then Heavy. Chris Short in MN was a 98 as Frosh, 152 as a Soph then 190.

We have a kid who went from a freshman last year at 189 to 250 this year. He's got some extra but the size and muscle development was extraordinary. He's going to be a really big one.
