Top-40 Prospect Braeden Davis Commits To Penn State Wrestling

Cael Sanderson’s wrestling program landed a big-time commitment Thursday night when Braeden Davis announced his intent to become a Nittany Lion.

Davis, ranked the No. 36 Class of 2023 recruit by FloWrestling, surprisingly chose Penn State when he committed. The Dundee, Michigan product was previously linked to Michigan, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Minnesota when he released the list of his top-five destinations back in October.

Davis is expected to wrestle at 125 or 133 pounds, which is certainly good news for Penn State. The Nittany Lions have struggled to produce at the former so far this season, and 133-pound star Roman Bravo-Young is expected to leave the program following one last ride this year.

“He’s a gritty wrestler whose unwillingness to concede positions makes him an exciting college prospect,” wrote FloWrestling’s David Bray.

Davis will need to wait quite a while before he can join the Nittany Lions on the mat at Rec Hall. For now, he can take pride in watching No. 2 Penn State continue its undefeated season, especially following a 29-10 rout over No. 3 Arizona State.
