Oklahoma State brought in the #1 recruiting class in the country for 2020 and quietly added a nice transfer as a piece to that group recently.


Joey Sanchez wrestled for the prestigious St. Paris Graham in high school in Ohio and was an Ohio state champion in 2018. He was an NHSCA All-American, Ironman placer, and finished his high school career with a 135-9 record.

One of his more notable and talked about wins in his prep career was in the 2016 dual between St. Paris Grahan and Blair. The dual came down to him and John Manning at 152. Sanchez picked up a 5-2 win over Manning which gave Graham the dual over Blair in 2016

Sanchez initially started out his career his career in the Big Ten at Indiana under Angel Escobedo. 



Sanchez had a freshman record of 3-1 before going 14-10 in his redshirt freshman season at Indiana at 157. This included a matchup with current Cowboy Chance McLane in the finals at the Lindenwood Open. McLane came out on top in that one 7-2. 

The Hoosier-turned-Cowboy made his transition to Stillwater this summer and projects as a future 157-165 for the Cowboys. He will be a sophomore this season at OSU. 

Currently the Cowboys look pretty set for this season at 157 and 165, with the two starters from last season back in Wyatt Sheets and Travis Wittlake. Down the road, Sanchez could eventually be battling for one of those spots with the eventual graduation of Sheets and feasible potential weight changes for Wittlake.
