    #2 Overall Lockett to Stay Home and Attend Oklahoma State

    This afternoon, the top uncommitted wrestler in the Class of 2025 announced his collegiate intentions. Stillwater High School’s Ladarion Lockett will stay home and wrestle for the Oklahoma State Cowboys per his social media accounts. Lockett is currently ranked number two overall in the Class of 2025 and also second in the nation at 157 lbs per MatScouts. 

    Lockett recently competed at 165 lb for the Ironman and finished third in the marquee bracket of the tournament. His lone loss at the Ironman came to Penn State signee Joseph Sealey (Wyoming Seminary, PA), a top-three overall recruit in the Class of 2024. 

    Last weekend’s performance marked the third time that Lockett has placed at the Ironman. He was also third in 2022 and won the tournament in 2021 at 144 lbs. Over the summer, Lockett struck gold at the U17 World Championships in Istanbul, Turkey. Other notable accomplishments include a pair of Super 32 titles (2022/23) and a 16U national freestyle title in Fargo (2021). 

    Lockett is now the third wrestler from the Class of 2025 to pledge to John Smith’s squad. He joins #86 Ethan Teague (Tuttle, OK) and #90 Beau Hickman (Tuttle, OK). 

    At the next level, Lockett projects to wrestle as high as 184 lbs. The Cowboys have plenty of young talent between 174 and 184 lbs, but retaining a wrestler of Lockett’s caliber from their own backyard was a must. 

    Lockett selected the Cowboys over Iowa, Iowa State, Arizona State, and Little Rock.
