Currently #2 at 145 and #3 on the Class of 2023 Big Board, Cody Chittum should have the eye of every college coach and fan in the country. Just a sophomore, Chittum already has a legitimate argument at the top spot at 145 lbs. The Tennessee native defeated current #1 Wyatt Henson 13-3 at 2019 Beast of the East. Henson closed out the season strong and the two will run it back and settle the dispute in Austin, Texas, on October 3rd.

Being just a sophomore, Chittum is not allowed to be contacted by college coaches. However, he has already come out with an unofficial preliminary school list. Being as young as he is, this list is not the be-all-end-all and could change once coaches start contacting Cody.

Cody Chittum School List (in alphabetical order)

  • Iowa

  • Maryland

  • Michigan

  • Minnesota

  • Oklahoma State

  • Penn State

No surprise to see the three heavy hitters — Penn State, Oklahoma State, and Iowa — on a blue-chip recruit's top-six list. Penn State just picked up a huge commitment from Chittum’s Blair Academy teammate Shayne Van Ness. If Chittum can fill out 165, he could fill in nicely behind Joe Lee at 165.

With three top-15 recruits, Oklahoma State just brought in the #1 recruiting class of 2020 and is slated to bring in another monster class this year with three more top-15 recruits. With Victor Voinovich at 149, Teague Travis and Travis Mastrogiovanni at 157/165, and Luke Surber at 174, the Cowboys are probably pretty set in the middleweights for the next five years. This is a problem they frequently run into and overcome, however.

Chittum wrestles a very stereotypical Iowa style. He wants to put his hands on, put your face through the mat, run behind you for a takedown, do that a couple of times, and then plant you on your back and pin you. A prime example of this is his 2020 National Prep semifinal vs Luca Errico of Brunswick.

Iowa fans should be rooting for Wyatt Henson on October 3rd, but keep in mind the incredible things the Brands Brothers can do with a recruit like Chittum. Chittum also trained under Hawkeye Wrestling Club coach Dan Dennis while Dennis was in Tennessee at the RTC South.

Now the three Ms: Maryland, Michigan, and Minnesota. Hard to imagine the lineup would be an issue at any of these three. Although Michigan and Minnesota have the history and Big Ten on their side, Coach Alex Clemsen is doing a great job in his first 18 months at Maryland. The Terps have three top-100 recruits already signed from the class of 2021 including Georgian Jaxon Smith. Chittum also has a connection with assistant coach Nick Brascetta as he used to coach at Tennessee Chattanooga. Picking up a recruit like Chittum could really catapult a squad like Maryland and help them lock down the southeast region.

Entering its eighth year, Who's #1 has featured the nation's best high school wrestlers in the country year in and year out from coast to coast. After this year, 29 states will have been represented on Who's #1 cards. I don't think you will be surprised by the states that have had the most wrestlers throughout the history of Who's #1, but still cool to see nonetheless.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that a historic conference like the Big 12, which currently has exactly 12 teams, will have a presence at the most prestigious high school event of the year. It also shouldn't come as a surprise that the historically best team from the Big 12, the Oklahoma State Cowboys, will be the team with the most recruits wrestling.

Every year since the inaugural event in 2013, Penn State has had at least one future wrestler competing at Who’s #1. While that's impressive, it's not necessarily surprising considering the recruiting hall Cael Sanderson and co. at State College bring in every year. This year is no different with one already signed recruit and three more potential recruits that have shown interest in PSU.
