    I saw about 5 matches each for Witcraft and Doucet. They wrestled well and won each match.

    Witcraft is looking like he might be a diamond in the rough.

    I spoke too soon. Reece won a close won in the round of 32 duals and lost in the round of 16. He seemed to be the better wrestler but his style of takedown and then just give the escape did not work well when in the second period you get thrown for five. He continued giving escapes with the last occurring with a little over a minute to go which put him down by 1.. He really was not aggressive to the last 20 seconds and he lost. Doucette won both of his matches by pin at 220. In the quarterfinals Witcraft had a solid win and Doucette won by tech fall. Witcraft rode his opponent most of the second and third period.

    In the semi's Witcraft won 1 to 0 and Doucette won 4 to 1. Solid wins but not impressive.

    Witcraft got beat fairly soundly in the finals giving up a takedown in the first period and 2 back points. Witcraft never got going. Doucet was ahead 4 to 0 with 10 seconds left and got the takedown and a quick pin after the takedown in the last second.

    I only watched the finals but Doucett looks like a college 197 to me. He has a similar frame as Hoffman on Ohio St. Hoffman was a 195 that also spent a little time at 220 in HS. Now he's at 184 and apparently staying there because Singletary plans on dropping to 197 in 2021.

    I'm still high on Witcraft. I like the combination of upper body stuff and leg attacks. FWIW, his finals opponent won state at 152 this year. With a Friday weigh-in (plus an allowance I think), that kid was probably pushing 155 - 160 today. I didn't see Witcraft's other matches, but from your posts it sounds like he had an up & down weekend.

    Goodness gracious that kid Witcraft wrestled in the finals was HUGE! No way he wrestles with same-day weigh-ins.

    bad news on the Piccilo front.. apparently Cornell is in the lead right now. Big Pics (dad) has connections within the program from his college days and The reason the older brother is going there might have a lot to do with getting the younger there when it's time...

    AJ Ferrari talks about his recruitment and mentions training partners as a key for him. Also says he's taking an unofficial visit to OU.

    We obviously need Ferrari, but I'm glad he's taking his visits and checking out schools. Every kid should do that before committing.

    Feel really good about Braxton Amos coming to Stillwater. Heโ€™s staying with a current recruit and going to final x with him. You can see him in the background from a news clip I saw earlier, he was working with Doucett and Espo at the Stephens County Camp in Duncan.

    Recent article in Flo on the 2020 D1 top 100 list shows the only uncommitted talent in the top ten are Ferrari, Amos and Jesse Vasquez. Oklahoma State leads the 2020 recruitment in the top 100 with Dustin Plott, Trevor Mastrogiovanni, Jakason Burks, Konner Doucet and Luke Surber. Iowa is next with Patrick Kennedy, Jesse Ybarra, Gabe Christenson, Cullen Schriever. Cornell hjas Josh Saunders, Greg Diakomohalis, and Ethan Hatcher. Va. Tech hasSammy Hillegas, Eddie Ventresca and Sam Fisheer.
    Rutgers includes Connor O'Neil, John Poznanski, Dylan Shawyer. Mo.has Keegan O'Toole and Rocky Elam. Penn State has Robert Howard and Beau Bartlett. If we recruit Ferrari and Amos this will be one of our very best recruiting classes ever.

    If I was him, I'd call Manning and tell him I enjoyed the official visit, but I'm just not sure I can commit yet. So I need to come back for an unofficial visit this weekend.

    Speaking of Picklo he won his first 3 matches by tech fall in the first period which Rogers also did at 170. Jordan Williams advance but had some relatively tough matches.

    In the semi's for cadets are Williams who is winning very tight matches, Picklo dominating all of his opponents at 170 and Rogers has made the sem's without any difficult matches. In juniors Doucette and Amos have advanced to the round of 32.
