Nov. 28, 2001
NORMAN, Okla. - The University of Oklahoma wrestling program continued to build on its stellar freshman class of 2003 by signing one its most heralded prospects in recent memory, Teyon Ware of Edmond, Okla.
Ware, the country's top-ranked wrestler at 135 and No. 2 overall, recently signed with Oklahoma, giving the Sooners three of the nation's best high school wrestlers for next year's freshman class.
Ware lists of accomplishments as a wrestler are extremely impressive. The senior from Edmond North High School has not lost since seventh grade and carries a career record of 95-0 heading into this year. Ware is also a two-time Junior National Champion and is trying to become the second high school athlete in Oklahoma history to win the state wrestling championship four times (Jerry Best is the other).
Ware will join two other highly-touted recruits, Sam Hazewinkel (Olathe, Kan.) and Justin Dyer (Pensacola, Fla.), as Sooner signees during the early signing period.
