Penn State head coach Cael Sanderson, left, and assistant coach Casey Cunningham, right, talk to Greg Kerkvliet during his match in the consolation semifinal round of the Big Ten Wrestling Championships at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska on Sunday, Mar. 6, 2022.

Penn State wrestling added to its next generation of wrestlers Tuesday evening with the commitment of Connor Pierce, a class of 2022 wrestler.

The Harborcreek, Pennsylvania, native compiled a 139-18 high school record and finished as the Pennsylvania 2A state runner-up this past season, with a 37-1 record.

Pierce would most likely slot into either 133, 141 or 149 pounds depending on who the Nittany Lions retain in the offseason.
