The 2023 US Open Wrestling Championships occur this week in Las Vegas, Nevada, and will feature plenty of both past and present Penn State wrestling team members. The men’s freestyle portion of the tournament will take place on April 27th and 28th. You can watch or follow all the coverage on FloWrestling.
The US Open is a wrestling tournament consisting of the best American wrestlers. The winners of the tournament will move on to Final X in June where they will compete to determine who will represent the United States at the 2023 Senior World Championships.
Of course, you cannot have a competition of the best American wrestlers without seeing plenty of familiar faces from the Penn State Wrestling room. I’ve counted seven current or former Penn State wrestlers competing in the senior men’s freestyle. Let’s take a look at the weight classes that involve a Nittany Lion so you know where to focus your attention.
