#1 Beau Bartlett Commits To Penn State

null

One of the nation's best juniors has announced his college plans. Beau Bartlett has committed to wrestle for Penn State.

The nation's top ranked 132-pounder, Bartlett has won three National Prep titles for Wyoming Seminary. Most recently, he finished eighth at the U.S. Open on the senior level, beating two-time All-American Jordan Conaway and three-time NCAA qualifier Shelton Mack.

He is currently rated as our seventh best prospect on the 2020 Big Board, and is the second Top-10 pickup from that grade for PSU, along with #4 Robbie Howard. That number could potentially grow, as #1 overall recruit AJ Ferrari and #5 junior Braxton Amos both have Penn State in their Top-5 school list.

Presently sitting at #6 in the pound-for-pound, Bartlett will be either a 133 or 141 at the next level. With Howard already committed, it is likely they will be back-to-back weights for the Nittany Lions, whether that is 125 and 133 or 133 and 141.

The coaching staff in Happy Valley might need to get creative with Bartlett and Howard's eligibility. Though 125 is an obvious need, Howard may outgrow it by the time he is finished high school and has previously stated he plans on being a 133 in college. Their current 141 Nick Lee still has two years of eligibility remaining, and starting 133 Roman Bravo-Young has three years left; both also can use redshirts.

Almost their entire 2018 recruiting class spent this past year on greyshirt, and that may be the case again for this 2020 group, especially considering that Howard is young for his grade and is still UWW Cadet eligible. Either way, the folks in State College have a good problem on their hand figuring out what to do with all of the incoming lower weight talent.

Iowa Class 2A Preview: Unpredictable Team Race Is Wide Open

The 2019-20 2A season looks to be as unpredictable as ever. Unlike Don Bosco and Lisbon in class 1A or Southeast Polk and Waverly-Shell Rock in class 3A, class 2A lacks a perennial championship contender. Union LaPorte City, Centerville, West Delaware, and Winterset will all be in the mix for the team title this season.
