Theorius Robison (Pomona, CO) has verbally committed to wrestle for the Northern Colorado Bears after high school.
Coach Troy Nickerson and his staff have now picked up two top-10 recruits from the Class of 2019, keeping both of them in-state. Robison is #8 on the Senior Big Board, joining #4 Andrew Alirez of Greeley, CO, to form a potent pair of middleweights who will be staying home for college.
The three-time Colorado state champ is currently ranked #7 at 145lbs. He carries a 103-6 record into his senior year, and was the 2016 Cadet Greco-Roman champion in Fargo. That same year, he placed fourth in Cadet freestyle and fifth in Akron.
We have both Robison and Alirez in our 149 prospect rankings, though one could of course grow into a 157. It does not seem like the Bears will have much trouble finding space for them in their lineup between 149 and 165, depending on how big each gets. The two split in freestyle at that 2016 Fargo tournament.
Robison did not do any freestyle this summer, so it's been a bit since we've seen him on the mat. His only loss this past season was a controversial DQ at the Reno Tournament of Champions, and he also won the Doc Buchanan in California. The year before, he won the RTOC with his only loss coming in the Doc B finals
In a tweet, Robison goes on to explain that he will also be playing football in Greeley.
