    Class of 2025 #16 Routledge Flips to Oklahoma State

    In the month since David Taylor was named head coach at Oklahoma State University, we’ve seen the Cowboys get multiple commitments from All-American transfers. First, Wyatt Hendrickson and then Cam Amine. Now we’ve seen the first high school wrestlers to commit to OSU under Taylor’s direction. 

    This evening, Willie Saylor reported that Oklahoma 6A state champion Kody Routledge (Edmond North, Oklahoma) has flipped his commitment from Nebraska to stay in-state and attend Oklahoma State. 

    In MatScouts recent update for the 2025 Big Board, Routledge moved up from #30 to #16 overall among rising high school seniors. 

    Before winning his first state title, Routledge made the finals of the Super 32 and Walsh Ironman in late 2023. Also in 2023, Routledge was fifth in Junior freestyle in Fargo and third in U17 freestyle at the UWW Trials in Vegas. The previous year he was a 16U freestyle national champion in Fargo. 

    Over the weekend, Routledge participated in the U20 World Team Trials. He went 2-2 and took fourth place at 74 kg. 

    During his high school career, Routledge was a state finalist as a sophomore and fourth in his freshman year. 

    Routledge projects at 157 or 165 lbs at the next level. The Cowboys don’t have any young blue-chippers at either weight; however, they do have 2025 #2 Ladarion Lockett (Stillwater, OK) and #107 Beau Hickman (Tuttle, OK) committed for 2025 in this weight range. A potential Routledge/Lockett one-two punch could be a very imposing middle of the lineup in the future. 

    Oklahoma State now has six commitments from Big Boarder’s from the Class of 2025 and seven total. Here are the other six that Routledge will join.
