in wrestling according to Intermat. This is without Chance Marstellar who famously flipped from the Nittany Lions to the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Some of us are worried that our string of national titles will come to a close. Even if it does, I think it might just be a one year hiccup. Here are the star recruits that Cael Sanderson has decided to let come to Penn State. I really think he's at the point where he decides who joins the Nittany Lions. I don't think he needs to push too hard when it comes to recruiting.
- Nick Nevils is from Clovis, California. He's a heavyweight. Is a bad ass and wears a cowboy hat. Ranked 4th in the nation.
- Bo Nickal is from Allen, Texas. I am pretty sure he's in the 160 - 175 area. Nickal is ranked 5th in the nation.
- Jason Nolf is from Kittaning, Pennsylvania. He won a state title this year at 145 to become a 3 time state champ. Nolf is ranked 7th in the nation.
- Shakur Rasheed is from Longwood, New York on Long Island where they take wrestling pretty seriously. He won a NY state title at 160 this year. He is the 56th ranked wrestler.
- The other ranked recruits are Anthony Cassar and Gary Dinmore from New Jersey. Both of whom Cael porched from Rutgers.
I will close with a quote from Josh Lowe at Intermat.
Commentary: Cael Sanderson has built an empire in Happy Valley, as the Nittany Lions have won four consecutive NCAA championships. Talent procurement has played a major role in this development, and this group of recruits will continue that stream of talent rolling into the Penn State wrestling program. Nevills, Nickal, and Nolf qualify as obvious superstars, while Rasheed is another potential star. Three-time state runner-up Dinmore and undefeated state champion Cassar will help bolster the quality of depth on the Nittany Lions' roster.
