Adam Busiello Flips From Penn State To Arizona State

null

It's been over two years since Adam Busiello committed to Penn State, the summer after his freshman year of high school. But today, Busiello flipped his commitment to Arizona State.

The three-time Super 32 champ announced his new college decision on instagram. Busiello had just visited Tempe this past weekend. The IG post reads:

Wouldn’t change anything that has occurred in my life up to this point and I’m proud to announce that I am in fact headed to ASU to continue my athletic and academic career. Excited for the future and to be a part of such a powerhouse team. Forks up. #idontdoit

After not placing at this year's Super 32, Busiello dropped to 8th in the 126lb rankings. He enters his senior season hoping to become just the third wrestler to win five New York state titles, after former Cornell star and current Northern Colorado head coach Troy Nickerson. The other was his future teammate and fellow Long Island native Jacori Teemer, a true freshman 149 at ASU.

Busiello's new commitment leaves Penn State without a single Top-100 commit from this year's Senior Big Board just five days before seniors can begin signing their National Letters of Intent. Meanwhile, the Sun Devils just added their seventh guy on the Big Board to this year's excellent recruiting haul, which is in contention with Cornell for the top class of 2019.

Joining Busiello at ASU will be Cohlton Schultz, Julian Chlebove, Nick Raimo, Trey Munoz, Cleveland Belton, and Zane Coleman.

While it may stand to reason that Busiello examined the lightweight situation in Happy Valley before switching to ASU, he also has a lot of talent around him in Tempe. Brandon Courtney is a redshirt freshman at 125 for the Sun Devils, and all three of Chlebove, Raimo, and Belton might have trouble growing into a 149.
