* Head coach Tom Ryan, who is in his sixth season with the Buckeyes, won his 180th career match Jan. 12 vs. Purdue.
With the youth on the team I'm hoping a dynasty is in the making. By the time they are Juniors and Seniors they should be scary good.
Thanks Randy. I got to watch a little on tv this year and am excited for the next few years to come.
The Bucks had the #1 rated recruiting class in 2011.
Recruiting for the current year (2012) is underway. Thus far, OSU has 3 fine prospects:
Nick Tavanello, Wadsworth, #23 overall ranked wrestler and #1 ranked wrestler at 285 lbs.
Mark Martin, Lakewood, #47 overall ranked wrestler and #4 ranked wrestler at 157 lbs.
Nick Roberts, Hooversville, Pennsylvania, #58 overall ranked wrestler and #10 ranked wrestler at 125 lbs.
Also, an elite wrestler in the mid-weights enrolled late this year. I don't believe he has wrestled this year,
but he was rated as one of the very best in the nation and plans are for him to wrestle next year for sure.
I got excited that we might have a title team in the making but those in the know threw a lot of cold water on that idea by saying that basically Penn State is better and just as young.

The kid that transferred to OSU in January is Chris Phillips.
Chris was a 4-time Ohio Wrestling State Champion.
He went to high school (Monroeville) with Logan, Hunter and Cam.
Kid was 193-1 in high school. LOL
He is, in a word, AWESOME.
