Brady Berge Returns To Competition With Penn State Wrestling

Brady Berge, who medically retired following an injury in the 2021 NCAA Tournament, announced on Twitter that he is returning to Penn State to finish his collegiate wrestling career.

The Minnesota native last wrestled for the Nittany Lions as a junior before having his season cut short due to an injury before the NCAA quarterfinals. Since leaving Penn State, Berge has been a volunteer assistant coach at South Dakota State University since July 2021.

“I am excited to announce I’m returning to the one place I can chase this dream – Penn State – where I will finish my wrestling career as a Nittany Lion,” Berge said in a statement.

He also shared that he plans to return to his position with the Jackrabbits after the spring 2022 semester at Penn State.

During his redshirt freshman year, Berge posted an impressive 20-5 record at 149 pounds with six major victories and three tech falls. Overall, he boasts a 31-9 career record, including 11 major decisions and three tech falls. He’s also a three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree.

Penn State wrestling is back in action against Maryland at 7 p.m. on Friday, January 7, in College Park.
