Former Cal Baptist Wrestler Mitchell Mesenbrink Transferring to Penn State
Just two days after the commitment of three-time All-American Bernie Truax, Penn State wrestling has landed another big name out of the transfer portal.
Redshirt freshman Mitchell Mesenbrink is headed to Happy Valley after a single season with Cal Baptist, he announced via a live stream Friday afternoon.
Mesenbrink posted a 2-0 record in his first collegiate season in the 165-pound weight class after being ranked the No. 12 overall recruit for the class of 2022. The Wisconsin native moved home in December 2022 before entering the transfer portal in March.
Aside from college wrestling, Mesenbrink took home the silver medal at the 2022 U20 World Championships, with the loss coming from Kanan Heybatov of Azerbaijan.
Mesenbrink notably beat now-fellow teammate Levi Haines twice in the US Team Trials to solidify his spot in the tournament.
