Two-Time Pennsylvania State Champion Nate Desmond Commits To Penn State Wrestling
Penn State wrestling’s Class of 2025 just got stronger.
Bethlehem native Nate Desmond announced his commitment to Cael Sanderson and the Nittany Lions Wednesday night.
“Since I was a little kid, I set goals,” Desmond wrote on Instagram Wednesday. “Some were unable to envision and understand, but I believe with dedication and enjoyment for the journey, anything is possible.”
The 120-pound lightweight is ranked as the No. 18-ranked recruit in the Class of 2025, according to FloWrestling. Desmond clinched two state championships at Bethlehem Catholic as a freshman and sophomore and has since transferred to Wyoming Seminary in Kingston, Pennsylvania, for his junior year.
During the 2022-23 season, Desmond went 41-1 en route to his state championship at 114 pounds. So far this season, Desmond is 12-1, according to PA Wrestling. His high school career record is 92-4, which features two losses during his freshman season at 106 pounds.
