The season is over but the good news is not for Penn State wrestling.

The Penn State wrestling room got a little bit deeper on Thursday.

Former Lehigh Mountainhawk Matt Parker announced that he was joining the Nittany Lions via transfer.

Parker, a Pennsylvania native, was a three-time state placer and a consensus top-100 recruit in the class of 2017.

He is also the younger brother of Lehigh All-American Scott Parker.

In his true freshman season in 2017-18, Parker went 12-2 at 125 pounds with first-place finishes at the Princeton Open, Wilkes Open and East Stroudsburg Open.

Parker missed the entirety of the 2018-19 season while recovering from injury. Should he get healthy, he will enter the fray at 125 next season with both Devin Schnupp and Brody Teske competing for the starting spot.
