"I made my decision based off what I felt was right, kind of be able to take away the external things that I can't control, and I was like, 'What can I control and where would I want to be regardless of situations like that?' And I just thought Oklahoma State was the best place for me," Hendrickson said.

Hendrickson compiled a record of 96-11 over the past four seasons at Air Force. This past season, Hendrickson was 25-2 with 16 pins en route to his second straight NCAA third-place finish.
