New head coach Lou Rosselli continues to create extreme positive momentum even before the University of Oklahoma had wrestled a single match during the 2016-17 season. The latest development is the verbal commitment of two-time state medalist and now two-time Super 32 Challenge placer Anthony Mantanona (Palm Desert, Calif.).
Ranked No. 32 overall in the Class of 2017, Mantanona is the fifth top 100 commit for the Sooners in this class. He joins No. 22 Dominick Demas (Dublin Coffman, Ohio), No. 33 Kyle Lawson (Olentangy Liberty, Ohio), No. 52 Tanner Litterell (Tuttle, Okla.), and No. 90 Jake Woodley (North Allegheny, Pa.) as commitments to date. Mantanona, who projects as a 174/184 in college, was also a FloNationals champion this spring and a Junior Greco-Roman champion this summer.
