Two-time Cadet world medalist Alex Facundo (Davison, Mich.) verbally committed to Penn State on Friday morning.
The nation's No. 1 ranked wrestler at 170 pounds is also a two-time state champion, a 2018 Super 32 Challenge champion, and won back-to-back bronze medals at the Cadet World Championships in 2018 and 2019. Facundo's commitment marks yet another class where the Nittany Lions have gotten at least one of the true elite wrestlers to Happy Valley.
He made the announcement on Instagram.

It's been a long journey ever since I was a little kid. All the hard work, sacrifices, pain, blood, sweat, and tears were meant to happen for a reason. I am blessed to announce that I will be continuing my athletic and academic career at Penn State University!!! Thank you to everyone who has supported and helped me these past 12 years and the people who have been there for me since day one. Especially my parents, my brother, Paul Donahoe, the Horwath family and coach Hall. It's an honor to be apart of something as special as Penn States legacy and wish to carry on this legacy. We are.... #committed #PSU #blessed
