Class of 2023 Wrestler AJ Fricchione Committs to Penn State

On Friday, Cael Sanderson added another talented commit to his national championship program.

AJ Fricchione, a Class of 2023 New Jersey state finalist wrestler has committed to Penn State.

Fricchione, who goes to St. Joseph Regional High School, was a state finalist in the 195-pound weight class last season. He is currently the No. 17 prospect in the 182-pound weight class, according to FloWrestling. He’s wrestled in multiple weight classes throughout his career, and also played football for St. Joseph. This season, he’ll be competing at Bergen Catholic High School.

Fricchione was also a state runner-up in the 215-pound weight class as a junior and is ranked No. 1 in that class.

Fricchione has one more order of business he would like to take care of before he comes to Happy Valley.

He talked to about finally becoming a state champion.

“I don’t want anything else other than to be on top of that podium in boardwalk hall holding that bracket,” he said.
