Cal Poly has undergone a recruiting renaissance under head coach Jon Sioredas and associate head coach Chris Chinouma. This duo, along with the rest of the Mustang coaching staff, continues to make keeping California's best in-state a priority.
This trend continues on the heels of a verbal from the #68 overall senior in the nation Zeth Romney (Chaminade College Prep, CA) Wednesday night. Romney notified InterMat of his intentions and made social media postings indicating his commitment to Cal Poly.
Romney is a two-time California state placewinner. He was fifth as a freshman at 106 lbs and third the following year at 113. Because of Covid, California did not conduct a state tournament during the 2020-21 season.
On a national stage, Romney's best credentials have come in Greco-Roman. He is a two-time Fargo 16U placewinner in Greco, taking fifth in 2018 and third in 2019. During the 2019-20 season, Romney was seventh at the Doc Buchanan Invitational.
Romney projects at 133/141 for the Mustangs. Solid recruiting has provided Cal Poly with plenty of young, quality wrestlers at those weights. That's a good sign, as he'll be able to sit and develop, if needed, or jump into the lineup right away, if he's ready from day one.
