NC State wrestling gets commitment from elite prospect and former viral star Stevo Poulin

It’s a credit to Pat Popolizio that we take for granted NC State’s wrestling success. He’s done an incredible job here. And it’s not weird or strange to see NC State out-recruiting more traditional wrestling powers.

NC State landed a top-10 class in 2020 and likely will do the same in 2021, thanks in no small part to the addition of top-10 prospect Stevo Poulin. Poulin is mildly internet famous—a highlight video of him as an 8-year-old with a mohawk went viral a decade ago. You can see why.

An adorable child and look he’s got a mohawk and OH MY GOD HE IS KILLING THE OTHER CHILDREN. (IN A FIGURATIVE SENSE.)

Anyway, it’s not surprising that someone dominating their age group then is dominating their current one. Great add for Popolizio and the Wolfpack, which is coming off of back-to-back ACC titles.
