One of the best high school wrestlers in the country is going to be a Nittany Lion.
Pennsylvania’s Gavin Teasdale, who was committed to Iowa, announced via Twitter on Tuesday that he instead will attend Penn State, which just won another national championship last weekend.
“After a long and hard consideration I’m proud to announce I will be attending Penn State University! #Weare,” Teasdale shared on Twitter.

Teasdale, who attends Jefferson-Morgan in Jefferson, Pa., committed to Iowa last April, but the Class of 2018 wrestler has changed his mind. According to FloWrestling.com, Teasdale is the No. 2 recruit for his class. Teasdale committed to Iowa alongside friend Spencer Lee, who’s in the Hawkeyes’ 2017 recruiting class.
The wrestler has three Pennsylvania state titles, winning the Class-AA 126-pound crown earlier this year.
At the NCAA Championships in St. Louis, the Nittany Lions also won five individual titles. Zain Retherford (149), Jason Nolf (157), Vincenzo Joseph (165), Mark Hall (174) and Bo Nickal (184) all won national championships.
The Nittany Lions have also won six of the past seven team national crowns for coach Cael Sanderson. And with Teasdale’s commitment, the Nittany Lions continue to dominate in the sport.
