Former Oklahoma State wrestling standouts Chris Perry and Tyler Caldwell are set to compete in freestyle at the University Worlds Championship in Pecs, Hungary.

Perry, the No. 3 man for the United States senior national team, will compete at 86 kg/189 pounds, and Caldwell will represent the U.S. at 74 kg/163 pounds.
