Top-Ranked Wrestler Vincenzo Joseph Commits to Penn State

Cael Sanderson has received a commitment from yet another top recruit, as No. 1 ranked Vincenzo Joseph has agreed verbally to compete for the four-time defending national champion Nittany Lion wrestling team.

Joseph is the nation’s top 145 lb. high school wrestler. He chose Penn State over Iowa, Ohio State, Cornell, and Virginia Tech.

A Pittsburgh Central Catholic product, Joseph is coming off an overtime win in the PIAA Championships last spring. He defeated Mike Kemerer of Franklin Regional in the 138 lb. championships.

According to FloWrestling:

Vincenzo brings all the tools to the next level. He’s a great combination of strength, speed and varied attacks. Not only can Vincenzo get to legs, he is an extremely skilled finisher, able to navigate various counters from opponents. He’ll be a great fit at the next level.

Welcome to the family, Vincenzo!
