Cael Sanderson has secured another potential prodigy that he can develop into a future star in a weight class that some consider a sore spot the past couple of seasons.

On Monday, Luke Lilledahl, the second-ranked wrestler in the Class of 2024 120-pound weight class committed to Penn State, according to FloWrestling.

Lilledahl is a Missouri native who has competed at the Wyoming Seminary the past two seasons, posting a 46-3 record. He won the Super 32 meet last fall, the Walsh Jesuit Ironman meet by defeating Jax Forrest, and finished the season by winning the 2023 National Prep title.

Lilledahl is a highly touted freestyle wrestling competitor, having made it to back-to-back Under-17 championships, taking silver in 2021 and gold in 2022.

Lilledahl is the fifth top ten prep wrestler in the 2024 recruiting class to commit to Penn State as fifth-ranked Joe Sealey, sixth-ranked Zack Ryder, eighth-ranked Mason Gibson, and ninth-ranked Connor Mirasola. Connor’s brother Cole is the No. 18 prospect in the country.

Lilledahl is expected to compete in the 125-pound weight class.
