There has been rumor and speculation for some time now that erstwhile Iowa State wrestling recruit David Taylor was leaning heavily toward following Cael Sanderson to Penn State and it's now official.
It's been a much longer road than all-everything Graham High School wrestler David Taylor had ever expected, but now that he's finally reached its end, he'd grateful for the journey. Taylor announced Monday, June 8, that he has accepted a full-ride scholarship to wrestle for Penn State University and its new head coach, Cael Sanderson.
Taylor is a huge get for Penn State and Sanderson, he was only the 17th wrestler to win four state titles in the state of Ohio, finished his high school career with an amazing record of 180-2, and won the prestigious Ironman Tournament four times (he's the only wrestler to accomplish that feat). He also won the 2009 Dave Schultz National High School Excellence Award given to the high school wrestler who displays excellence in wrestling, scholastic achievement, character, citizenship, and community service.
