Penn State wrestling may not be having the best season, but the program did receive some good news this week.
Congratulations to Austin Boone, on signing his NLI to Penn State University! He and his family have been apart of the All-American family for many years and we look forward to all his success to come at PSU! pic.twitter.com/lDBhw13RTp— All-American Wrestling Club (@AllAmericanWres) January 30, 2020
Three-time Michigan state champion Austin Boone signed his letter of intent on Wednesday to wrestle for the Nittany Lions.
The class of 2020 prospect is ranked No. 39 overall in The Open Mat’s 2020 class rankings and fifth in the country at 145 pounds.
Boone is projected to wrestle at either 149 or 157 in college and in addition to being one of the more underrated prospects in the country, gives Penn State some much-needed depth at those weights over the next few years.
Boone, who hails from the same high school as Cornell brothers Gabe and Max Dean, will look to make it four for four in March.
He becomes the fifth member of Penn State’s 2020 class, joining Robbie Howard, Beau Bartlett, Matt Lee and Aurelius Dunbar.
