Penn State Wrestling Secures Another Highly Rated 2025 Commit

Penn State Wrestling has been one of the most dominant sports programs in not only collegiate wrestling history, but in all of sports history.

And for a wrestling program which has a long and storied history of producing several all-time greats at the lightweight class, the Nittany Lions have struggled to produce competitive guys at 125 pounds for more than a handful of years. But I’m here to say that those days are definitively over as Cael Sanderson picked up a commitment from Wyoming Seminary’s Nate Desmond.

What Nate Desmond Brings Penn State Wrestling

Desmond is the No. 18 ranked recruit in the 2025 class and he joins and already star-studded class which includes the overall No. 1 recruit, PJ Duke, and No. 25 recruit, Dalton Perry.

Nate is a two-time PIAA champion and was previously teammates with Tyler Kasak at Bethlehem Catholic before transferring to Wyoming Seminary.

Furthermore, Desmond went undefeated at the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Duals, finished third at the past Ironman, finished fourth at Fargo this past summer, and had a runner-up performance at Super 32.

With what Penn State fans have seen from Braeden Davis so far this year, along with commitments from Luke Lilledahl, Mason Gibson, and now Nate Desmond, this is exactly the reason for my proclamation above.

When Sanderson and his coaching staff bring top level talent into their wrestling room, three things generally happen: 1. The wrestler improves each and every day2. They make the best wrestling room in the country even better3.

They turn into champions And it’s just a matter of time before there will be a collision course between an NCAA title at 125 pounds and a Nittany Lion grappler once again.
