Nation’s Top Wrestling Recruit Decommits from Penn State

Chance Marsteller, the nation’s top-ranked recruit in the country, has decommitted from Penn State, and has given a verbal commitment to Oklahoma State, according to his Facebook.

“To clearify any confusion I will be wrestling for okie state,” he wrote and later confirmed to multiple outlets.

Marsteller, who originally committed to Penn State in July, is 125-0 in his high school wrestling career and a three-time PIAA champion at Kennard-Dale High School, where he wrestles at 160 lbs.

Penn State is still expected to have the top-ranked 2014 class in the country, with commitments from top-ten recruits Nick Nevills and Bo Nickal, in addition to No. 15 Jason Nolf. The early-signing period for wrestling begins next week from Nov. 13 to Nov. 20.

Cael Sanderson will need to find replacements for David Taylor and Ed Ruth next year. Both are seniors and in their final season with the program.

Oklahoma State is currently the fourth-ranked team in the country and came in second-place last year at the NCAA tournament. Penn State faces Oklahoma State at home on February 16.
