Coach Cael Sanderson continues his recruiting prowess

Cael Sanderson added what might be the final huge piece to his outstanding 2018 recruiting class Wednesday evening when he secured a verbal commitment from Malvern Prep’s Michael Beard, as first reported by Flo Wrestling. Beard, who projects to be a 197 lber in college, is the number five wrestler in his graduating class, per Flo Wrestling.

Beard joins a recruiting class that already features #2 Gavin Teasdale, #3 Roman Bravo-Young, #4 Travis Wittlake, #10 Seth Nevills and #37 Joe Lee.

Penn State recently won the 2017 NCAA Championship in St. Louis in March, crowning five consecutive underclassmen champions, and scoring a school record 146.5 team points. It was their sixth national championship in seven seasons.
