Rutgers Wrestling lands a commitment from Brandon Toranzo

An already strong recruiting class for Rutgers wrestling received another boost this week with the signing of Brandon Toranzo.

Toranzo is a high-profile addition to Rutgers coming off his high school career. He placed third at the NJSIAA State Championships at 285 pounds for Nutley High School (Nutley, New Jersey). During his run at the state championships, Toranzo defeated two wrestlers who were ranked above him by NJ Wrestle before the tournament.

He also won the Region 3 Heavyweight Championship that season.

Rutgers has five wrestlers ranked in the top 50 in the country on the FloWrestling Big Board.

Toranzo announced his signing via social media on Monday afternoon:

Rutgers is coming off a strong rebounding season. Rutgers finished the season 12-5 with a 4-4 record in the Big Ten.
