High school wrestling: Tuttle's Luke Surber commits to Oklahoma State
Luke Surber didn't wrestle much during the Class 4A Oklahoma high school wrestling championships in February.
He competed in three matches at State Fair Arena, but none lasted longer than 1:38, which was his first match. The junior dominated his competition, going 46-1 en route to winning the 152-pound title.
On Wednesday, Surber announced his commitment to Oklahoma State via Twitter.
He joins teammate Dustin Plott, who is considered a top-five recruit in the 2020 class, as Tigers pledged to the Cowboys. Both juniors captured state titles in 2019 while helping Tuttle win a dual state trophy and state championship.
Coach Matt Surber, who is Luke's father, said in his 19 years of coaching, he has helped plenty of wrestlers make college decisions, but there was something different about assisting his son.
"I love a lot of these kids as my own," Surber said. "When it comes down to trying to help your own son decide, it's a little bit more emotional and tough to do."
