Oregon State Wrestling Welcomes Seven Signees

CORVALLIS – Oregon State wrestling head coach Chris Pendleton announced Thursday the addition of seven student-athletes for the 2022-23 season.

The Beavers welcome Isaiah Anderson (197 pounds), Chase DeBlaere (141/149 pounds), Damion Elliott (133 pounds), Austin Scott (157 pounds), Nash Singleton (133/141 pounds), Noah Tolentino (149 pounds) and Gabe Whisenhunt (125/133 pounds).

Anderson joins the program from Pasco, Wash., where he posted a 38-1 record as a sophomore at Chiawana High School. He’s a two-time state champion after also finishing with a 35-1 record as a freshman.

“Isaiah has been one of my favorite kids who I’ve recruited,” Pendleton said. “The guy is built like a tank and wrestles like it with a big smile on his face.”

DeBlaere (pronounced Dee-Blair) is a native of Inver Grove Heights, Minn. He’s a three-time state champion at Simley High School, winning at 120, 126 and 138 pounds. He finished 2021 with a 32-1 record.

“I’m very excited about the potential for Chase,” Pendleton said. “He’s been chasing national competition these past two years and his results show a trajectory of someone about to break through to that next level.”

Elliott has starred at Del Oro High School in Loomis, Calif., and posted a 30-10 record as a junior. He was 32-5 as a sophomore and 28-5 as a freshman.

“Damion is one of the more under-the-radar recruits in the country,” Pendleton said. “Total credit to our coaching staff for uncovering him.”

Scott has competed at 132, 145 and 152 during his career at Mountain View High School in Tucson, Ariz. He entered his senior year with a 76-10 record and was a state champion as a junior.

“Austin really stood out to us during the recruiting process because of his maturity and character,” Pendleton said. “We believe those are the building blocks for our program and he represents what we believe. I can’t wait to watch him grow as a person and a wrestler in our program.”

“It is always exciting to be able to keep our homegrown kids in state,” Pendleton said. “Nash is a scrappy young man who has grown a lot the past year technically. I can’t wait to get to work with him.”

Tolentino joins Beaver Nation from Poway High School in California. He has competed at 132, 138 and 145 pounds and has finished among the top 12 wrestlers in the state.

“Noah is a great addition to an already stellar recruiting class,” Pendleton said. “He’s a big piece of our future and can’t wait to keep building that California connection.”

Whisenhunt has been a Beaver since the day he was born, and is following in his father’s, Josh, footsteps as a wrestler at OSU. His mother, Bea, is also a former Oregon State gymnast. On the mat, Gabe Whisenhunt helped lead Crescent Valley High School to a team title in 2021 and he won a state title as a sophomore, concluding his year at 52-3. He was also a state champ as a freshman.

“Gabe was one of our first kids who made a commitment to becoming a Beaver, and even though he’s a man of limited words when he speaks, people listen,” Pendleton said. “I hope his leadership will continue to flourish and he grows within our program.”

The Beavers return to action Saturday when taking on Penn State in Manheim, Pa. The Beavers and Nittany Lions get underway at 4 p.m. PT.
