In other news, water is wet.
Duke follows in the footsteps of fellow Minisink Valley teammate Zack Ryder, as they add to the ridiculous talent that is slated to matriculate to Happy Valley in the next couple of years.
Ah how the rich just seem to get richer.
According to Flowrestling, PJ was a busy man this past June 15th as his recruiting process opened with a whirlwind of phone calls. When it was all said and done, Duke fielded over 30 calls and was on the blower for over five hours.
And for good reason.
Duke’s wrestling accomplishments are about as long as my grocery list when I’m hungry.
Just last year PJ won titles at the Walsh Ironman, Fargo, and the Super 32. And prior to that, he compiled a record of 45-0 and became the youngest-ever Section 1, NYSPHSAA, and Eastern States champion at 99 pounds … as a seventh grader.
And between October and December of this past season, Duke bested the likes of No. 12 recruit Vince Bouzakis, No. 9 recruit Kollin Rath, No. 3 recruit LaDarion Lockett, and No. 7 recruit William Henckel.
However, PJ had to miss the majority of his last season due to an injury which required surgery.
Duke is well on his way to recovering and he projects to be a hammer in the middle of the Penn State lineup between 157 and 165.
