PSU Wrestling Lands All-American Transfer Aaron Nagao

Former Minnesota wrestler and 133-lb All-American Aaron Nagao announced on the Baschamania podcast that he has committed to Penn State. He chose Penn State over returning to Minnesota, Iowa and Cornell.

He entered the portal after finishing in fifth place at the NCAA tournament in March. He’s the second All-American to join the program, following three-time All-American upper weight Bernie Traux IV from Cal Poly. They also added middleweight Mitchell Mesenbrink from Cal Poly.

Nagao went 23-6 during the 2022-2023 season with two of his losses to Roman Bravo-Young, Penn State’s multiple national champion who graduated last season. Both losses occurred in postseason in the Big Ten 133-pound title bout and the quarterfinal round of the NCAA Tournament.

Last year was his redshirt freshman season meaning he has three years of eligibility remaining. The move helps Penn State continue their dominance in the ring in which they’ve won 10 national titles under head coach Carl Sanderson since 2011.
