And that train keep on rollin...
Coming off a dominant performance in the NCAA Wrestling Tournament, Cael Sanderson and the Penn State wrestling team kept up the momentum as they picked up a commitment today from class of 2018 stud and long-time Iowa Hawkeyes commit Gavin Teasdale.
Teasdale, a 120-pound wrestler from Jefferson-Morgan high school in Pennsylvania, is one of the most sought-after recruits in the country. The junior is ranked No. 2 in the country by FloWrestling in the Class of 2018, giving Penn State commitments from the second (Teasdale), third (Travis Wittlake Jr.), and fourth-ranked (Roman Bravo-Young) wrestlers in the country for that class. Teasdale is also ranked No. 1 by Flo at 126 pounds and No. 10 in their pound-for-pound rankings.
Teasdale’s accomplishments include three state championships, three Powerade championship and a Cadet national freestyle championship. Most importantly, Teasdale’s commitment to PSU means he will not be following fellow PA stud Spencer Lee to Carver Hawkeye Arena.
Teasdale, similarly to Bravo-Young, projects to 133/141 weight classes in college. It will be interesting to watch how the Nittany Lions’ 2018 class fills out now with commitments from Teasdale and RBY commited, following class of 2017 commit Nick Lee who projects to 141/149. For now, we celebrate.
Welcome to Penn State, Gavin.
