A bit of an interesting development, incoming Oklahoma State freshman Cutter Sheets has quietly put together a really good summer of wrestling so far.
Sheets, the son of NCAA Champion Mike Sheets and younger brother of All-American Wyatt Sheets, committed to wrestle at Oklahoma State last September. He finished third place at the state tournament the year prior and finished second at the OSSAA state tournament at 145 this February behind Tuttle’s Reese Davis.
To start the summer, he finished third at the Union Fargo Qualifier, dropping only one match to Stillwater’s Landyn Sommer. He bounced back by winning an Oklahoma freestyle state title a few weeks later, where he beat American commit Garrett Washington and OCU commit Boston Powell.
Then possibly his performance of the summer came at Junior National Duals in Tulsa. He went 4-0, beating Campbell commit and Ohio state runner-up Wynton Denkins, North Dakota State commit, Minnesota state runner-up Brendan Howes, and arguably most significantly beating Braden Stauffenberg, an Illinois state champion, preseason national champion and Greco World Team member in 2021.
I spoke with Cutter about a month ago at the freestyle state tournament. He talked about moving in with his brother, working cows and some of the work he planned to put in over the summer once he got to Stillwater. It’s apparently paying off, as he seems to really be jumping levels at this point.
