Depth for Penn State may have caused the Nittany Lions to lose a wrestler on Thursday.
According to the Johnstown Tribune-Democrat, Cody Law has transferred to the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. Mountain Cats coach Pat Pecora also confirmed the move in the story. A Penn State source confirmed to the Centre Daily Times that Law has transferred.
“I’m really excited,” Law said to the Tribune-Democrat. “I’ve been wrestling with the team for a few days. I started classes today.”
The redshirt sophomore was 13-7 last year for Penn State at 157 pounds. With Jason Nolf holding down the starting spot at 157, Law moved up to 165 pounds. However, there is a trio of wrestlers at that weight jockeying for the starting role with Law not among them.
Law leaves the program while his younger brother, Triston, still remains with the Nittany Lions. It made the decision that much harder for Cody.
“It was difficult leaving Triston, leaving my whole team,” Law said to the Tribune-Democrat. “They became my best friends. It’s not an easy thing.”
