Last year, Oklahoma managed to rank #11 in the overall recruiting class rankings; this year they’re 24th. While not as strong a class this year, the coaching staff did a good job of filling future holes and having a strong offseason for transfers. With three wrestlers on the Big Board, OU picked up some blue chips to add to their roster.
|Name||Ranking||State||High School||Projected Weight|
|Joey Cruz||#52||CA||Clovis North||125lbs|
|Christian Forbes||#227||OK||Broken Arrow||125lbs|
|Kaden Smith||UR||OK||Bridge Creek||125/133lbslbs|
Transfers – Wyatt Henson (133/141lbs), #26 Mosha Schwartz (141lbs), #18 Gerrit Nijenhuis (165)
Kaden Smith may be unranked, but he is a four time state placer and won in 2020. He’s in a good position to redshirt behind wrestlers like Anthony Madrigal and Wyatt Henson. In the meantime, he is someone that I could see continue to grow and move up to 141lbs in the future.
