2-Time State Wrestling Champion Branden Wentzel Commits to Penn State

The defending national champions got a commit from a former state champion.

Branden Wentzel, a standout at Montoursville High School who won the state championship as a freshman in 2020 at the 106-pound weight class and and finished runner-up this past spring at 113, has committed to Penn State.

Wentzel’s only high school season that didn’t end with him wrestling for a state championship was his sophomore year, and even then, he placed third at states.

Wentzel is the fifth wrestler pledged to Penn State’s Class of 2023, joining Cale Nasedo (Williamsport, Pennsylvania), Tyler Kasak (Bethlehem, Pennsylvania), Josh Barr (Davison, Michigan) and Braeden Davis (Dundee, Michigan).

All five of Penn State’s commits are from either Pennsylvania or Michigan.

Wentzel’s pledge is a nice end-of-summer present for coach Cael Sanderson, who’s summer has been highlight by a contract extension announced last month.
