From FHSU Sports Information

Fort Hays State head wrestling coach Chas Thompson announced the signing of seven more wrestlers for the 2014-15 season, bringing his total recruiting class amount to eight. All seven were state placers in high school and enter their first year of college from the prep ranks. The latest signees include Brik Chesley, Kalin Collins, Casey Hilton, Skylar Hittle, William Homalon, Zach Kearney, and Justin Scott.

Chesley is from Sparks, Nevada, where he was a two-time state placer for Spanish Springs High School. As a junior in 2013, he finished second in the state at 195 pounds and then took third place as a senior in 2014 in the same weight class. He is projected to wrestle at 285 pounds in college.

Collins, native of Wichita, comes to FHSU from Wichita West High School. He was a three-time state placer, all at 160 pounds. His highest finish was second place in 2013 as a junior, while he finished third as a senior in 2014 and sixth as a sophomore in 2012. He was ranked No. 5 for all 160 pound wrestlers in the state. He is projected to wrestle at 165 pounds in college.

Hilton, native of Marysville, was a state placer as a senior in 2014 at Marysville High School. He finished fifth at 220 pounds and is projected to wrestle at 197 pounds in college.

Hittle is a three-time state placer at 195 pounds from Concordia. At Concordia High School, he claimed the state championship in class 4A as a junior in 2013 and finished second as a senior in 2014 after bouncing back from an injury in time to qualify for the state tournament. He also finished third in 2012 as a sophomore. He was ranked ninth for all 195 pound wrestlers in the state. He is projected to wrestle at 197 pounds in college.

Homalon, native of Katy, Texas, was a two-time state champion at Morton Ranch High School. He topped the 126-pound class as a senior in 2014 and the 120-pound class as a junior in 2013. He is projected to wrestle at 133 pounds in college.

Kearney is also a two-time state champion from Reed Springs High School in Reed Springs, Missouri. Both of his state titles were at 220 pounds, earning top honors as a senior in 2014 and a junior in 2013. He is projected to wrestle at 285 pounds in college.

Keeping with the two-time state champion theme, Scott is a two-time state champion from Jefferson West High School. The Ozawkie, Kansas native moved up to 285 pounds as a senior in 2014, winning the state title, after winning the state title at 220 pounds the year before as a junior. He also finished second in the state at 220 pounds as a sophomore. He is projected to wrestle at 285 pounds in college.

These seven individuals join Cesar Regalado, who signed earlier with the Tigers from Pratt High School in Pratt, Kansas. Regalado was a two-time state champion for Pratt. He went undefeated as a senior at 120 pounds in 2014 and won the state title at 113 pounds as a junior. He also finished third at 113 pounds as a sophomore. He was the top ranked wrestler in 4A last year at 120 pounds and second ranked for all Kansas classes at that weight. He is projected to wrestle at 125 pounds.
