Class Of 2025 Star PJ Duke Commits To Penn State Wrestling

Class of 2025 standout PJ Duke committed to Penn State wrestling, he announced via Instagram Monday. Duke is listed as FloWrestling’s top-ranked recruit in America. 

Duke attends Minisink Valley High School in New York, where he won the 138-pound weight class state championship as a freshman. As a sophomore, an injury put an early end to his season. Aside from high school, Duke is a two-time Super 32 champion, and won both Fargo and Ironman titles. 

According to David Bray of FloWrestling, Duke had over 30 colleges call him on June 15, the day the recruiting process began for current high school juniors. However, the Nittany Lions stood out. 

Bray also reported that Duke is planning to be a part of the 157-pound weight class upon arrival at State College, the same class that Levi Haines went 25-2 in as a freshman last year at Penn State.
