Cael Does Work: Bo Nickal Commits To Penn State

Penn State wrestling, already loaded with talent, just keeps getting better. Bo Nickal, a junior from Allen High School in Dallas, Texas, has verbally committed to Cael Sanderson and the Nittany Lions.

 

Nickal has a career 140-7 record in high school, including two Texas state titles. He also won the FILA Cadet Nationals earlier in the year, and will be competing in Serbia for the FILA Cadet World Championships.

“Honestly, it would be hard to peg it down to one reason,” Nickal said about the commitment. “It would have to be a combination of how much support there is from the entire community here, and that I would not only become the best wrestler but the best all around person I could be at PSU.”

The #6 overall pound-for-pound wrestler joins 170lb Chance Marsteller, heavyweight Nick Nevills, and 138lb Jason Nolf as verbal commits for the Class of 2014. All four wrestlers are ranked in the top 11 pound-for-pound high school wrestlers in the nation.

Things were already looking good for Cael Sanderson’s program after their third straight team national championship, and with recruits like this coming in, it looks like it can only get better for Penn State.
