Kaid Brock, two-time NCAA Division I All-American wrestler for Oklahoma State, had surgery last week to repair a torn ACL and meniscus in his knee this past week, and may miss much of the upcoming season -- including conference and national championships -- according to Seth Duckworth's Pistols Firing blog Friday
Duckworth reports that the typical recovery period for this type of surgery is 6-9 months. The 2020 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships are just shy of seven months from now.
Brock is a three-time NCAA qualifier for the Cowboys. The Stillwater, Okla. native earned All-American honors twice, placing fifth at both the 2017 and 2018 NCAAs at 133 pounds. This past season, Brock wrestled 141 pounds, making it to the 2019 NCAAs, but losing his second match to No. 2 seed -- and eventual runner-up -- Joey McKenna of Ohio State, and did not place.
Prior to enrolling at Oklahoma State, Brock was a three-time Oklahoma state champ for Stillwater High in 2013, 2014, 2015. Brock was also a five-time Fargo All-American (2010-15), and earned a gold medal at the 2013 Cadet Pan American Games in both freestyle and Greco-Roman.
