Returning All-Americans
OSU has three of the nation’s best wrestlers in 133-pounder Jordan Oliver, 149-pounder Jamal Parks and heavyweight Alan Gelogaev. Oliver is coming off of a perfect 29-0 season, winning the 2011 NCAA individual championship at 133 pounds. His record included 24 bonus-point wins and his 82.8 bonus-point win percentage was the fifth-highest single-season mark in Oklahoma State history. Parks earned All-America status for the first time last year with a fifth-place finish at the NCAA Championships. He finished with a 30-5 overall record that included six wins over ranked opponents and three wins over eventual All-Americans. Gelogaev returns to the Cowboys lineup after taking a medical redshirt last year with a chest injury that forced him to miss the entire 2010-11 dual season. Before that injury, he earned All-America honors wrestling at 197 pounds in 2010, his first year to ever wrestle at the collegiate level. He placed seventh at that year’s NCAA Championships.

NWCA All-Stars
The NWCA All-Star Classic wrapped up the 46th edition of the annual event on Nov. 21 in Temp, Ariz. Cowboy wrestlers Jordan Oliver and Jamal Parks both put together impressive showings as each came home from the event with a win. Oliver took down one of the top wrestlers in the country, defeating third-ranked B.J. Futrell of Illinois, 8-7. Parks stormed past Arizona State’s Joel Smith with a 17-4 major decision.

New Kids on the Block
Oklahoma State welcomes a pair of senior transfers this season that have a chance to make a big impact on the program.

Cayle Byers comes to Oklahoma State after wrestling the previous three years at George Mason. The 197-pounder was just a single win away from earning All-America honors two years ago and enters 2011-12 as one of the top athletes in the country, ranked third or higher by Amateur Wrestling News, and WIN Magazine. He is 8-1 this year and earned a major decision in his first dual as a Cowboy.

Chris Chionuma comes to OSU after three huge seasons at NAIA Lindenwood. He earned the 2011 NAIA individual title at 174 pounds with a 40-3 record. His junior season included 12 major decisions, eight pins and six tech falls. He also earned All-America honors for his second-place finish in 2010 and his fifth-place finish in 2009. He has already impressed coaches in the wrestling room and hopes to crack the starting lineup at some point in the year. He won the 165-pound titles at the UCM Open and the FHSU-Bob Smith Open, his first events as a Cowboy.

Older sister Jesyca was an all-Big 12 soccer player for Oklahoma State as well. Dallas Bailey’s father, Leo, was a two-time All-American wrestler for the Cowboys in 1983 and 1986.
