Cadet world team member, Pennsylvania state champion, and the eighth-ranked 152-pounder in the country, Levi Haines, announced today on his Instagram that he has committed to Penn State. 

The Biglerville native has been in the Pennsylvania state finals the past three years and finally broke through this year in Hershey. He followed that performance up by making the Cadet World team in the Wisconsin Dells when he beat Enzo Morlacci, Joseph Sealey, and Aiden Riggins in three matches. 

Watch Haines punch his ticket onto the 2021 Cadet World Team.

Back in October of last year, Haines made the Super 32 finals while picking up wins over Teague Travis, Kelvin Griffin, and Ben Alanis. In the summer of 2019 at Fargo, Haines was fourth in freestyle. 

Watch Haines win a Pennsylvania state title back in March.

As of right now, he projects at 157/165 but in the past year has jumped up a few weight classes. Haines made the Super 32 finals at 138 before making the Cadet World Team at 71kg or 156.2 lbs just six months later. 

Haines has been a longtime member of David Taylor's M2 Training Center, and is the first commit for Penn State in the class of 2022. The Nittany Lions inked the top-ranked class in the recently released 2021 recruiting rankings
