Penn State Wrestling Snags Country’s Top Recruit

It appears that  Penn State wrestling coach Cael Sanderson is at it again as Chance Marsteller (Kennard-Dale HS, 160 lbs) became the third top-10 recruit to commit to the Nittany Lions for the Class of 2014.

Marsteller is the number one top ranked pound-for-pound recruit in nation according to FloWrestling’s pound-for-pound recruit rankings. Marsteller joins an already prolific 2014 class that includes Nick Nevills and Thomas Haines, ranked fifth and seventh in the national recruiting rankings respectively.

Marsteller has yet to lose a match in his high school career as he has gone 125-0 with three PIAA Class AAA Titles. He has also won the Super 32 wrestling tournament and was a Cadet Team World Member in 2012.

While Marsteller had been considering forgoing college and training at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs for international competitions, he decided that Penn State would be the best fit.

“I realized that the college route was best for me,” said Marsteller. “The OTC is a great resource, but at Penn State, I have the best of both: world-class coaches and athletes to train with and an opportunity to get a college education and compete at the NCAA’s.”
