As the premier high school event of the year, college wrestling fans should be tuning in. If your school of choice is not being represented, their competition is. Who’s #1 features the future stars of the sport; just take a look at all of the WNO alumni success. 

Watch Who's Number 1 LIVE on FloWrestling

Saturday, Oct. 3 | 6 PM EST

This article is broken down into two sections: those who have at least verbally committed to a school, and those who are still on the market. Well over half of the athletes competing are already committed, so let’s start there.

Committed Wrestlers

  • Victor Voinovich: Oklahoma State

  • Travis Mastrogiovanni: Oklahoma State

  • Kyle Haas: Oklahoma State

  • Drake Ayala: Iowa

  • Wyatt Henson: Iowa

  • Jagger Condomitti: Nebraska

  • Lenny Pinto: Nebraska

  • Paddy Gallagher: Ohio State

  • Seth Shumate: Ohio State

  • Richie Figueroa: Arizona State

  • Chase Horne: NC State

  • Joel Vandervere: Northwestern

  • Tate Picklo: Oklahoma

  • Alex Facundo: Penn State

  • Dean Peterson: Princeton

  • Kyonte Hamilton: Rutgers

  • Jordan Titus: West Virginia

The Big Ten leads the conference race with nine future wrestlers, but it’s Oklahoma State winning the team race with three: Victor Voinovich, Travis Mastrogiovanni, and Kyle Haas. Mastrogiovanni and Haas are both top 10 recruits from the class of 2021 and will be joining family members in Stillwater, Trevor Mastrogiovanni, and Tyler Caldwell. Voinovich is the #15 overall recruit.

Iowa, Nebraska, and Ohio State will all have two competitors while the final eight schools represented will have one.

Uncommitted Wrestlers

The athletes are listed in order of appearance on Saturday night's card. Click on each wrestler’s name to get an in-depth look at each school’s prospective chances and how they fit into their lineup.

  • Jesse Mendez: Arizona State, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio State, Princeton, Purdue

  • Jordan Williams: Arizona State, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Wisconsin

  • Kylie Welker: N/A

  • Skylar Hattendorf: Life, King, McKendree, Menlo, Simon Fraser

  • Rylan Rogers: Arizona State, Cornell, Michigan, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Oregon State, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn, Penn State

  • Nick Feldman: Cornell, Franklin & Marshall, Michigan, Navy, North Carolina State, Purdue, Ohio State, Virginia Tech

  • Cody Chittum: Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Oklahoma State, Penn State

  • Sage Mortimer: N/A

  • Mia Palumbo: Campbellsville University, Mckendree University, Menlo College, William Penn

  • Cael Valencia: Arizona State, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio State, Oklahoma State, Penn State

Of the six uncommitted male wrestlers, Cael Valencia is the only senior. The brother of Zahid and Anthony Valencia, Arizona State is in play, but certainly not a lock. Cael is still keeping his options open. The highest-ranking uncommitted wrestler on the Class of 2021 Big Board, Valencia will be a huge pickup wherever he goes.

Jesse Mendez, Jordan Williams, and Rylan Rogers are all top-10 preps from the class of 2022, while Nick Feldman sits just outside the top 10 at #11. 

The only sophomore competing at Who’s #1 Cody Chittum’s school list is somewhat preliminary as he cannot even be contacted by college coaches yet. However, the Tennessee native does have coaching ties to both Maryland and Iowa.

On the women’s side of things, senior Mia Palumbo and junior Skylar Hattendorf listed mostly top programs. However, first-year program William Penn did make its way onto Palumbo’s list. Kylie Welker and Sage Mortimer opted not to share their recruiting information.
