Top prospect Bo Bassett, an unconventional talent in the sport of wrestling, is likewise handling his recruiting process in an unconventional manner. 

When the Johnstown, Pennsylvania native released his first school list, it had 80 programs, rather than a more conventional number of say, five or even ten. 

Bassett, a 2021 U17 gold medalist and 2024 U20 world team member at 65kg, has consistently said that he wants to keep his options open during the process and give every school interested in recruiting him as much consideration as possible.

As Bassett narrows his school list, we'll keep track of the programs that come off the board. Follow the updates here.
