    #20 Robideau Flips Commitment to Oklahoma State

    Last night, Landon Robideau (St. Michael-Albertville, Minnesota) the #20 overall recruit in the Class of 2025 posted a graphic on social media indicating that he committed to wrestling at Oklahoma State University. Robideau had previously given a verbal commitment to stay in-state and wrestle for Minnesota. 

    Robideau was the very first wrestler from the Class of 2025 to make a college commitment, as he did so in October of 2022. 

    Robideau will head into his senior year of high school a three-time Minnesota state champion and a five-time state finalist - Minnesota allows middle schoolers to compete at the high school level if they’re able to do so. 

    Nationally, Robideau has taken third and fifth place at the UWW U17 Trials. He’s placed twice at the Super 32 - seventh in 2022 and he was a finalist in 2023. Next week, Robideau will attempt to add to his accomplishments in Fargo. He comes into the tournament as a three-time placer in freestyle - twice at the 16U level and once as a Junior. Robideau was third in Junior freestyle and made the 16U finals twice. Robideau will be in action in Fargo at 150 lbs. 

    Robideau’s flip makes him the second prominent wrestler from the Class of 2025 who has flipped commitments since David Taylor was hired in early-May. Just over a month ago, #16 Kody Routledge (Edmond North, Oklahoma) switched his commitment from Nebraska to Oklahoma State. 

    With Robideau and Routledge in the fold, alongside #2 Ladarion Lockett (Stillwater, OK), Oklahoma State has verbals from three of the top-20 prospects in the Class of 2025. They also have commitments from seven members of the 2025 Big Board. 

    Robideau projects in the 149/157 lb range which doesn’t necessarily appear to be a desperate need for the Cowboys. However, as they are trying to reload and get into NCAA team trophy and team title contention, they will stockpile as much talent as possible and let the wrestlers sort it out. 

    The Cowboys already have a bit of a Minnesota connection in the room. NCAA qualifiers Troy Spratley (125) and Tagen Jamison (141) spent a year at Minnesota before transferring.
