After two days of speculation and less than a day after BlueWhiteIllustrated.com broke the news Chance Marsteller was reconsidering his verbal commitment to Penn State, Marsteller put it in his own words.

“Just to clear up any confusion I will be wrestling for Oklahoma State,” said Marsteller on his Facebook page at approximately 3:15 Eastern Time on Wednesday.

Marsteller, the No. 1-ranked senior in Amateur Wrestling News’ Class of 2014, is projected as a 165 or 174-pounder in college and has long expressed his desire to win World and Olympic medals. An undefeated three-time Pennsylvania AAA state champion, Marsteller has drawn comparisons to some of the state’s greats, including his mentor Cary Kolat.

There are no official reports from Marsteller detailing the change, however, Marsteller’s high school coach, Mike Balestrini said: “He’s probably a little confused right now. He always had it narrowed down to those two schools. I just told him to think it through and try to make sure you don’t do something you might regret,” in a Tuesday story with Frank Bodani of GametimePA.com.
