Class Of 2022 Star Connor Pierce Commits To Penn State Wrestling

One month removed from winning another NCAA title, Penn State wrestling is already making some big offseason moves.

Tuesday evening, Cael Sanderson’s program received a commitment from Class of 2022 star Connor Pierce. The Harbor Creek, Pennsylvania, native wrapped his high school career with a 139-18 record after claiming four PIAA 2A state medals, including a second-place finish at last month’s tournament.

“After a long journey, I am excited to announce that I will be furthering my academic and athletic career at the Pennsylvania State University,” Pierce wrote on Instagram.

Pierce most recently wrestled at 138 pounds for his high school program. Some experts figure he might settle in at 133 or 141 pounds when he’s wrestling with the Nittany Lions next year.

Pierce’s commitment to Penn State serves as the latest strong pickup for Sanderson’s staff. The Nittany Lions recently received a verbal pledge from Class of 2025 stud Dalton Perry and earned another commitment from Ohio State transfer Will Betancourt, who’s expected to compete at 125 pounds.
