Penn State Adds Pair Of Top Tier Wrestling Recruits

Saturday wasn’t just about football. On one of the most important days of the year for Penn State football recruiting, Cael Sanderson also made strides in building the future of the wrestling program by picking up two of the premier juniors in the nation.

Roman Bravo-Young of Tucson, AZ and Travis Wittlake Jr. of Coos Bay, OR announced their commitments to Penn State together in a live broadcast on with Ryan Holmes.

Bravo-Young is an undefeated two-time state champion at Arizona powerhouse Sunnyside. He likely projects to either the 125 or 133-pound weight classes.

A two-time Oregon state champion, Wittlake is 84-2 in his high school career and placed bronze this summer at the World Cadet Championships in Tbilisi, Georgia. He’s projected to wrestle at either 184 or 197.
