With the card now announced for 2020 Who’s #1, Oklahoma State fans have plenty of reasons to watch.

There are three Oklahoma State commits vying for the #1 spot in their weights.

At 152 Victor Voinovich will make his second appearance at WNO as he’ll take on Jager Condomitti. Last year Voinovich wrestled and pinned Jesse Vasquez to take the #1 spot at 145. Voinovich comes in as the underdog and ranked #2 heading into this one.

Kyle Haas, the younger brother of OSU recruiting coordinator Tyler Caldwell, was looked at as a lock for the Cowboys for a long time and made it official last November when he committed. He will take on Nick Feldman for the #1 spot at 220. Haas was a Cadet World Team member last summer and currently as a 220 is projected by many to be a heavyweight when he gets to Stillwater. 

Watch him take out Seth Shumate for the 92 KG World Team spot last summer.

The final wrestler competing here who is already committed to Oklahoma State is Travis Mastrogiovanni. Mastrogiovanni, who will join his older brother Trevor in Stillwater next year, is competing for the #1 spot at 160. Like Voinovich he is a Who’s #1 alum and competed here last year. He fell to Sonny Santiago at 152. Mastrogiovanni will be taking on Ohio State commit Paddy Gallagher.

Others to Watch

Those are the three commits, but there are others on the card with some Oklahoma State ties.

Rylan Rogers vs Lenny Pinto

Rogers vs Pinto was the latest match added to the card and it involves a family member of a couple former Cowboys. Rylan is the cousin of Chandler and Jordan Rogers, and this 2017 article notes that at the time he was hoping to follow in their footsteps. The Cowboys did sign a lot of guys around his size for the 2020 class, he’s moved across the country to Blair Academy, and his cousin Chandler is now an assistant at Arkansas Little Rock. So, who knows where OSU is at on him at this point? But if I’m an Oklahoma State fan he’s certainly worth following 

Alex Facundo vs Cael Valencia

Also on the card is Cael Valencia, who has Oklahoma State on his school list. He’ll be taking on Penn State commit Alex Facundo. Valencia has heavy ties to Arizona State and most expect that’s where he’ll wind up as he’s a legacy with family there, but he did list the Cowboys as a possible landing spot.

Jordan Williams vs Shayne Van Ness

Jordan Williams is the top recruit in the state of Oklahoma for the 2022 class. Williams, who is out of Collinsville, is coached by Gary Wayne Harding’s dad Wes. Gary Wayne currently coaches at North Caroline. Naturally, you expect UNC to be in the mix and he also has some OU ties with a number of Collinsville products including Caleb Tanner making their way to Norman. Still, the Cowboys are likely to be all-in on trying to get him to Stillwater. Williams will be competing in a four-person tournament for the top spot at 138.
