Penn State wrestling: Nittany Lions add Pottsville’s Gardner to recruiting class

Pottsville senior Luke Gardner made quick work of his recruiting process with Penn State.

According to, Gardner made an official visit to campus earlier this week. He received an offer and quickly verbally committed to the Nittany Lions on Tuesday.

Gardner’s commitment won’t become official until he signs his National Letter of Intent. It is believed that he will take advantage of the early signing period next month. He chose Penn State over Edinboro and Central Michigan.

Gardner is projected to wrestle at 133 or 141 pounds in college. In high school, he will take a 101-21 record into his final season at 132 pounds.
