OSU Wrestling: Two-time California state champion Ronnie Ramirez commits to the Cowboys

David Taylor has continued to shuffle many cards for his first recruiting class.

Oklahoma State signed two-time California state champion Ronnie Ramirez on Tuesday, the Cowboys' ninth signing for the Class of 2025.

Ramirez, of Walnut High School in California, has made the finals in every season of his prep career so far. He was a finalist as a freshman before winning a state title the last two years as a sophomore and junior. He was perfect last season as a junior. With a year to go, Ramirez could make it 4 of 4 in his career to the state finals and win a third title. And to add to Ramirez's track record, Walnut High School won the team title in 2024 and finished second in 2023.

Ramirez wrestled in the 120-pound class last season, making him a likely 125- or 133-pound fighter in college. He is ranked as the 27th best recruit in the class of 2025 on MatScouts' Big Board list.

The Cowboys already have two new additions on FloWrestling's big board: No. 3 LaDarion Lockett and No. 17 Kody Routledge. Lockett, a graduate of Stillwater High School, has been committed to OSU since before Taylor was hired to replace John Smith after his retirement. However, Routledge recently transferred his commitment from Nebraska to OSU since Taylor took the helm.
