The Minnesota native enters his junior year at powerhouse Simley High School ranked #2 in the nation at 138-pounds. Sokol was recently defeated at this year's edition of Who's #1 by Penn State commit Beau Bartlett.
Sokol had originally verbaled to Iowa a little over a year ago but de-committed this summer. Ohio State was also in the hunt for the commitment of the #9 recruit on the Class of 2021 Big Board.
Sokol competed this summer in the UWW Cadet World Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria at 65 kilograms, where he finished tenth.
