(Neb.)- Eagles Add Two All-American Wrestlers
CHADRON - Two All-American transfers, Terrance McKinney and Oscar Marin, have both signed National Letters of Intent to wrestle at Chadron State College, head coach Brett Hunter announced.
McKinney, a native of Spokane, Washington, is a sophomore and will wrestle at 149 pounds. Marin, a junior from Bakersfield, California, will compete at 125 pounds.
"Terrance is a tremendous wrestler and will bring a lot of positive attention to the program," Hunter said. "Terrance has proven that he can win at this level. I'm also very excited because Oscar can make an immediate impact on our team."
McKinney, the sixth-ranked recruit in the nation as a high school senior, graduated from Shadle Park High School and wrestled at North Idaho College. He went 31-11 as a true freshman, winning the Spokane Open and the Southern Oregon Open. He was ranked first in the nation for most of the season and finished as a FILA National All-American.
In high school, McKinney was a two-time state champion in Washington's Class 3A and a 2012 Fargo National All-American.
"I believe in Coach Hunter and the program he is building in Chadron," McKinney said. "I can't wait to contribute to the team and help make an impact."
Marin wrestled at York College in Nebraska. He was a 2011 Fargo All-American at Bakersfield High School and he was a 2011 California place winner. At York College, Marin was a 2014 NAIA All-American.
"Chadron State and the wrestling program offers me exactly what I want and need," Marin said. "The program seems to be on the rise and I'm excited to be a part of it."
