Oklahoma State's Kaid Brock takes home NCAA Wrestler of the Week honors

  OSU's Kaid Brock won Wrestler of the Week honors after defeating No. 6 Mitch McKee of Minnesota.

With 56 percent majority from the NCAA Wrestling Twitter poll, Kaid Brock of Oklahoma State has been named NCAA Wrestler of the Week.

The 133-pounder notched one more takedown in the third to wrap up the match and the dual. Brock, after his true freshman season was cut short due to injury, has since proven himself worthy of being a top competitor.
