NCAA Champion Anthony Cassar Will Return to Penn State
In a decision with huge implications for the 2020 NCAA team race, 2019 NCAA Champion Anthony Cassar will be returning to Penn State on a medical redshirt. Despite spending five years in college already, the NCAA has determined that Anthony's career was so seriously impacted by injury that he can compete for two more years, effectively making last year his sophomore year in eligibility terms. The 2020-2021 season is still unknown, but Cassar returns for next year at least.

"After much thought and prayer, I've decided that I will be returning for another year of college wrestling as I prepare for the 2020 Olympic Trials. Let's run it back!," Cassar posted on Instagram Friday. As a first year starter on the conference and NCAA champion squad, Anthony went 30-1, losing only to Derek White (now graduated), en-route to winning the Big 10 Championship and National Championship. In both tournaments, he had to defeat Gable Steveson, who he was a considerable underdog to, hailed as the greatest high school wrestler ever.
Anthony's career in general has been severely hampered in the past by shoulder injuries, injuries that he now seems to be past. The jersey native missed significant time from his first few seasons at PSU, opening up the possibility for the medical hardship waivers. Now PSU continues to reload after losing some very good seniors graduated, and this will certainly help their quest for another team championship.
