Hello Freshmen. Take a look at OU’s Top 25 freshmen wrestling class

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.

John Wiley#33OKMustang165lbs
Joey Cruz#52CAClovis North125lbs
Christian Forbes#227OKBroken Arrow125lbs
Kaden SmithUROKBridge Creek125/133lbslbs

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.
