Penn State Wrestling Grabs Another Top Recruit

The rich got richer on Wednesday afternoon when Brady Berge, the top-ranked 160-pound high school wrestler and sixth best senior in the country, committed to Penn State on a live broadcast on FloWrestling Radio Live. Berge chose the Nittany Lions over the likes of fellow powerhouse programs Iowa, Oklahoma State, and Minnesota which all made his final four list of schools that he announced over the summer.

A native of Mantorville, MN, Berge enters his senior season as a three-time Minnesota state champion with a 234-5 career record.

In the interview with FloWrestling, Berge announced his intentions to redshirt next season when he arrives in Happy Valley and to wrestle at 149. If all does go as planned with Berge redshirting and dropping down to 149 in college, he would be the heir apparent to reigning national champion Zain Retherford.
