PSU Wrestling Adds Three-Time State Champ And B1G Transfer

Penn State wrestling has had an active last week, adding a big-time Big Ten transfer and a key commitment.

Former Illinois 125-133 pounder Jered Cortez announced that he’d be leaving his school in the first week of August, then six days later decided on Penn State as his next destination. Cortez went 6-2 last season and had previously won the State Championship in high school. He has already redshirted a season and will transfer in-conference, which means that he’ll lose a year of eligibility, but he was all smiles in his announcement.

Three days after Cortez’s transfer was announced, New Jersey’s Nick Suriano committed to Penn State. Suriano has been perfect so far in his high school career — through three years, he’s 121-0 with three state titles. Most recently, he took down Ty Agaisse in this past May’s State Championship.

The 120-pounder, expected to add some weight in his time before college, shared on his Twitter that he trains with Olympic gold medalist Jordan Burroughs. Cael Sanderson’s team is showing again that it never has to rebuild, it just reloads — and in a three-day stretch this week, did so in a big way.
