Clackamas College out of Oregon City, Oregon, got a huge commitment this Friday from Buchanan’s superstar Joel Romero. Romero finished the 2017-18 season as the No. 2 ranked wrestler in the state by The California Wrestler at 160-pounds.
During his scholastic career for the Bears, Romero was a three-time CIF state place winner. Placing second his senior and junior years while taking third as a sophomore. Romero was also a two-time Central Section champion and helped the Bears win the coveted California CIF team state title on three occasions.
He is projected to compete in the 157 or 165-pound weight class in college. Romero also has the option to redshirt during his freshman year, as both weight classes have a talented lineup, or compete since NJCAA All-Americans Isaiah Diggs (157) and Dillon Ulrey (165) will be graduating.
