Former Rutgers 141 pound wrestler Sammy Alvarez has transferred to Oklahoma State. He announced that he would be entering the transfer portal a little over a week ago.
It came out last night that Alvarez has transferred to Oklahoma State, the question remains as when will we see Alvarez compete again?
While at Rutgers his weight had consistently been an issue as he missed on numerous occasions. From 2020-22 he was at 133 pounds and would have been a serious contender to place and possibly even win a national title looking at the matches he had with Roman Bravo-Young.
This year at 141 he missed weight for the Rutgers vs Rider dual, after this his status with the team was uncertain until it came out that he was no longer with the team.
Now that he is at Oklahoma State the big question is where does he fit into the lineup. It seems like he will attempt to go 149 assuming that the cut to 141 was too much for him but with possibly a whole offseason before we see him back in action maybe even 157 pounds. Thats all just speculation at this point.
