Oh, Hello Wrestling Edition: Austin Boone Commits to Penn State

New, 37 comments

Penn State lands one of the top uncommitted prospects in the 2020 class.

Committed text alongside fireworks.

Penn State wrestling may not be having the best season, but the program did receive some good news this week.

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.
