Connor Pierce, 2022 PIAA Wrestling Runner-Up, Committed to Penn State

Connor Pierce

Connor Pierce, an in-state wrestler in the class of 2022, announced on Instagram that he has committed to Penn State wrestling on Tuesday. 

“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 in his post on Instagram. “I would like to thank everyone that helped me along the way. #WeAre”

Pierce is from Harbor Creek, Pa, and wrestles in the 138-pound weight class. He finished with a career record of 139-18 and captured four PIAA state medals. As a senior, he posted a 37 -1 record and finished second in the state losing to Ryan Crookham of Saucon Valley High School.

Some scouts think that he will wrestle in the 133-pound weight class or the 141-pound weight class for the Nittany Lions, who have already received a verbal commitment from Dalton Perry, a Class of 2025 phenom in the 126-pound weight class who posted a 41-2 record as a freshman.

Cael Samuelson has also received a commitment from Ohio State transfer Will Betancourt, who expects to wrestle at 125 pounds after wrestling at 133 pounds for the Buckeyes. The Nittany Lions have added another talented wrestler from in-state to attempt to repeat as national champions and build a dynasty.

The Lions won five titles and the overall team title at the 2022 NCAA Wrestling Championships in Detroit last month.
